Posted Sep 29, 2023

GPLA, part of the DPR Family of Companies, is seeking to hire a Structural Project Manager with specific experience in cold formed steel (CFS) framing design

DPR Construction has operated as a self-performing general contractor in the U.S. for over 30 years with DPR’s Metal Framing and Drywall group having grown to be the 3rd largest CFS framing group in the U.S. A key component of DPR’s strategic plan for 2030 is demonstrated expertise with Design-to-Build project delivery methods. As part of DPR’s Design-to-Build approach, DPR has brought GPLA into the DPR family of companies to provide design, engineering, constructability, and detailing services to its self-performed work and prefab groups. As GPLA’s process is to design in fabrication-oriented modeling software, GPLA’s high definition BIM process is the perfect complement to DPR’s goal of executing work using DfMA capabilities.

This Structural Project Manager will be the point person responsible for managing design, engineering, constructability review, and detailing work for GPLA as it pertains to cold-formed steel systems. They will train design engineers and detailers in the means and methods of cold formed framing, supervise the execution of the project work, and interface with the installation team to ensure that the design, model, production files, and shop drawings meet their needs. Their involvement will start with putting together the proposal for these scopes of work and will carry through the duration of the project. Qualified candidates should possess the following:

  • 10 years of experience in structural engineering work, with specific, detailed experience designing exterior and interior wall framing systems, and structural load bearing cold formed steel structures.
  • Experience managing a team of 5 to 10 engineers and detailers.
  • Strong managerial skills and excellent communication skills.

  • Trade level knowledge of contactor means and methods and preferred details.
  • The desire to work in a team environment and promote team values.
  • Ability to organize and produce drawings and calculations for building permits for framing projects.
  • The drive to advance the AEC industry in it’s use of cold formed steel framing for technical applications.
  • Experience with Tekla modeling software is a plus.
  • This position is salaried.
