ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT OF CONSTRUCTION

 

 

DISTINGUISHING FEATURES OF THE CLASS:

 

The work of the position involves assisting superiors in the inspection and review of a wide variety of building construction and/or rehabilitation projects, or inspection of parts of these projects on an assigned basis. Incumbents in this class are responsible for the on-site inspecting of materials, workmanship and adherence to plans, specifications and other standards required under specified funding source acquired by the Albany Housing Authority.  Normally, they are assigned to inspect parts of building construction and/or rehabilitation work restricted to a particular trade or craft, but may serve as an overall assistant to a Senior Superintendent of Construction.  When assigned to less complex projects the incumbent is the inspector in charge of all construction. Direct supervision by the Senior Superintendent is normally involved, but in cases where the incumbent is in charge of all construction, leeway is allowed for the use of independent judgment in carrying out the duties of this position.  Supervision over lower ranking employees is not a regular responsibility of the position.
