Redevelopment jobs can consist of urban reconstruction, contracting and construction. A common part of redevelopment is through construction and design of new model homes in communities. Redevelopment specialists must convey technical land use and environmental information to individuals and other agency representatives. Redevelopment specialists are responsible for administering individual housing projects that provide mortgage assistance to first-time homebuyers and make loans to homeowners and developers for housing development and rehabilitation projects.
A Construction Project Manager is an example of a redevelopment position because they prepare contracts and negotiate revisions, changes and additions to contractual agreements with architects, consultants, clients, suppliers and subcontractors. Project managers also confer with supervisory personnel, owners, contractors, and design professionals to discuss and resolve matters such as work procedures, complaints, and construction problems, plan, organize, and direct activities concerned with the construction and maintenance of structures, facilities, and systems. These managers are also good at evaluating a problem with a building and discussing with a panel on how to fix it in order to progress forward with redevelopment.
Other jobs in redevelopment include project manager, asset engineering project manager, instructional design specialist, director of center city development office, regional director of development, zoning attorney, senior construction manager, assistant director of development, capital improvement project manager, tower improvement area supervisor, senior environmental consultant, environmental scientist, engineer, leasing administrator, administrative assistant, senior property manager, environmental project manager, mechanical, electrical, plumbing designer, and real property strategist.
