Senior Project Manager – Construction Renovation (Hawaii)


SageWater, Hawaii’s leading pipe replacement contractor, is seeking a Senior Project Manager to oversee interior renovation projects.

SageWater is Hawaii’s pipe replacement expert. We have successfully replaced over 32 million feet of pipe in more than 85,000 occupied residences.  For more than 30 years, SageWater has solved complex age-related and defective piping challenges across a variety of property types—from garden-style apartment complexes and high-rise condominiums to hotels and commercial office buildings.

As a Senior Project Manager, you will become part of the company’s Hawaii repipe division overseeing pipe replacement projects at properties located throughout Oahu. This position reports directly to SageWater’s Regional Operations Director for Hawaii, who manages multiple repipe projects simultaneously.  As a Senior Project Manager, you will work with additional SageWater project managers to oversee an entire repipe project from end to end.

  • Project Managers supervise construction projects from beginning to end, ensuring that projects are completed within time and on budget.
  • An understanding of the construction business and the ability to work under deadlines in a fast-paced environment are essential.
  • As a project continues, SageWater Project Managers typically confer with supervisors or other managers to monitor construction progress, including worker productivity and compliance with building and safety codes.
  • Because they must ensure that a project is completed according to schedule, Project Managers must resolve problems that arise due to resident and/or property manager concerns, inclement weather, emergencies or other issues that may cause delays.
