CHA Consulting Inc. is currently seeking a Sr. Project Manager – Bridge to join our Bridge Business Practice group in Columbus, OH.


Our Project Management teams work closely with and on behalf of our clients to ensure the on-time, on-budget, high quality completion of a design and construction project. We actively lead a project and support the owner from preliminary planning and design through construction and project close-out with a focus on three core priorities: schedule, cost and quality. We are experts in the oversite and management of construction, and we’ll bring a deep bench of talent and expertise to make the owner’s vision a reality.


Nearly one out of every ten bridges is structurally deficient. As the average age of our nation’s bridges nears 50 years, successful bridge projects must balance complex analytics, engineering innovation and context sensitivity with economic prudency and long-term feasibility. CHA’s bridge professionals incorporate collaborative and diverse thinking with practical and cost-effective designs that responsibly improve mobility and safety. We have inspected, designed, managed and overseen the construction of a wide array of grade separated crossings, retaining systems, and conveyance structures throughout the United States.


At CHA, the Sr. Project Manager works diligently to complete projects within the scope, budget and schedule while thoroughly understanding all project risks and applicable financial measures. This senior, key role is responsible for managing the overall client relationship including any technical, financial or logistical issues that may arise. Our Sr. Project Managers are skilled collaborators who are experts at problem solving and adapting and staying calm under pressure. The Sr. Project Manager sells and develops work with specific clients, ultimately leading to a “seller/doer” dual role.


Our Sr. Project Managers are leaders in identification of target market areas and marketing plan development. The Sr. Project Manager clearly and successfully communicates updates to the client, management and project team, as well as prepares for and attends monthly project review meetings with operations. The Sr. Project Manager plays an important role in setting visions and strategies for other Project Managers and understands the professional goals of others.
