Construction Management Cover Letter Example

Employer's Name
City, State, Zip

Dear Salutation LastName,

From the first day I began managing custom home construction projects, I have consistently realized my objective of bringing every single project in on time and under budget. However, I have never believed that meeting those criteria alone was good enough.

If you agree that well-managed projects should exceed customers' expectations in terms of quality and service, we should talk.

To help you learn more about my track record, I have enclosed my resume. While it illustrates my experience and training, what it cannot communicate is my dedication to my craft. My professional creed includes:

  • Pride in the quality of my work, and a willingness to personally perform even the most menial tasks to remove project obstacles and get the job done.
  • Ability to envision how specific parts of the house should look and flow, and communicate those ideas to architects, designers, and upper management, always with positive results.
  • Expertise in blueprint assessment and collaborating with architects throughout the course of a job to point out oversights that would unnecessarily consume the client's time and money.
  • Skilled in building lasting relationships with homeowners, who frequently request project advice. Willing to provide this advice at no charge in the interest of customer goodwill when necessary.
  • Excellent skills in guiding, motivating, training, and mentoring other carpenters.

Based on my experience and strong commitment to my craft, I know I will add significant value to your team. I look forward to discussing my capabilities in more detail and am available for a personal interview at your convenience.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
