Contract Administrator, Retail

Your Opportunity: We could design buildings just because we can, but we'd rather create places that inspire. Through our Architecture and Interior Design work, we challenge design ideas of the past to create spaces that foster a culture of collaboration-spaces that are designed for community.

We believe good design extends beyond the physical elements of a space-good design shapes our lives, influences our behaviors and interactions, and has purpose. We strive to design spaces that are meaningful and memorable for our communities. Join our team of creative professionals and work with us to create inspiring spaces for all.

We have a number of long-term, high profile projects in and around the Toronto area that require Contract Administrators to be part of our award winning team.

    • Progress payment certificates
    • Off-site inventory payments

    • Evaluating contractors' submissions for changes and claims
    • Negotiating an acceptable resolution to contract changes and claims, and processing for management approval
    • Processing contract close-outs
    • Preparing various reports and other correspondence relating to areas of responsibility


Your Capabilities and Credentials: The preferred candidate requires:
  • A thorough knowledge of procurement and contracting principles, methods, procedures and practices including contract administration relating to changes, claims and delays
  • A comprehensive knowledge of relevant engineering, pertinent legislation and standards, and accounting and scheduling practices/methods
  • Sound judgment, strong analytical and problem-solving abilities
