|The Salk Institute Facility Service department is responsible for overseeing building maintenance, ground maintenance, the interior and exterior building systems, and grounds.|
Under general supervision, the Supervisor of Trades primarily is responsible for supervising and working with one or more small groups or crews of skilled and semi-skilled workers involved in the installation, operation, maintenance, and repair of mechanical and electrical systems including heating, ventilating, refrigeration, air conditioning, power, water and sewer systems and equipment as related to HVAC and/or Mechanical and Electrical systems throughout the institute. The Supervisor of Trades is distinguished from the other trade and lead classifications by the larger scope of supervisory, project planning and coordination duties and the greater amount of time devoted to these activities. Incumbents typically prioritize and coordinate the work of multiple crews or projects; assign work to qualified crew members; provide overall technical leadership; determine necessary materials, supplies, equipment and staffing to meet work orders and preventive maintenance schedule; provide work and safety instructions; provide on-the-job training and instructions to less skilled workers in trade and safety practices; provide written input on performance evaluations; prepare and issue written or oral work directives; monitor work in progress; inspect completed work to ensure it is in compliance with specifications, codes, special instructions and sound trade practices; maintain computerized maintenance management systems, including accounting for labor, materials and purchasing, as well as prepare reports. Work on new construction and remodels requires: collaborating with engineering and design; interpreting complicated plans and drawings; coordinating work schedules and work assignments to meet the overall construction/modification objectives; sequencing of work; ensuring the availability of required materials and equipment; analyzing operations; preparing cost and time estimates; and providing a high level of inspection to ensure appropriate building and safety codes are met. Incumbents also may design minor tenant improvements and coordinate and supervise the work of related trades workers on specific projects.
