Project Manager Open Position

The project manager is responsible for working under the direction of the production manager and with other relevant team members to ensure full delivery and completion of a construction project, within budget, with an on-time schedule, and with a happy client.

The project manager is also responsible for the security and welfare of the clients’ property on any

About Copper Sky

We believe older homes are worth saving. The right way – with an eye on the traditional design elements, a thoughtful layout, meticulous planning, and uncompromising attention to detail. Our approach to renovation is modern living with a respect to the past – a carefully planned amalgamation of two distinctly different worlds. Yet we carefully blend the best of both by preserving original architectural details where possible while adding space, function, and utility where needed.
The result?
