Renewable Cities is seeking a Project Coordinator, Prefab Mass Timber

As Project Coordinator, Prefab Mass Timber you will fill a crucial role supporting the delivery of our mass timber mid-rise local solutions engagement project at Renewable Cities. This initiative, focussed primarily on solving policy and regulatory challenges to the delivery of prefab and mass timber buildings, has four current priorities: 1) engaging elected officials, 2) engaging advisory design panels, 3) facilitating the development of sample Development Permit Area design guidelines for municipalities and 4) advancing deeper outreach to the broader local government and building sector stakeholders.

Working closely and collaboratively with the Renewable Cities’ team and Senior Program Manager, you’ll coordinate development and delivery of the prefab mass timber initiative by:

  • managing administration and supporting delivery of project activities
  • engaging with local government policy makers and building sector stakeholders
  • scaling project impact through engagement and communication with a range of stakeholders
  • reporting on project activities and outcomes to funders

You have a working knowledge of high-performance buildings, prefabrication, mass timber and a local government’s building approval process. You thrive in a fast-paced work environment and have strong project management and administration skills. You enjoy organizing project logistics and connecting with others. You are action oriented: you know what it means to show initiative and take the next step to support delivery of project activities. You thrive in a small, growing team.

You are excited by the work of Renewable Cities in its work on addressing barriers to high performance mass timber buildings as well as our other program areas. You are passionate about advancing climate action in urban regions and finding systemic solutions to complex challenges.

The application deadline is 11:59 pm Pacific Time on Sunday, May 28, 2023.
