About the Company:

Trimark was founded in 1992 and has experienced steady growth through understanding our market, delivering award-winning projects, maintaining and constantly improving our portfolio. We provide a unique team approach to all aspects of real estate and business management, deliver top quality products, service, and sales. We believe in “Location, Location, Location." Our communities are steps to UF, Gainesville’s Midtown and Innovation District, and UF Health (Shands) facilities.


Trimark Properties seeks an experienced Project Manager to join our company. Trimark Properties delivers construction projects through a number of vehicles, including a turn-key approach wherein we contract with a general contractor and/or a construction manager to deliver a project.  Depending on the project size/scope, we also act as the prime contractor, contracting services with subcontractors and suppliers directly. 

In addition, every project begins with a vision set by the ownership group of Trimark Properties.  That vision is then translated into a design and detailed construction documents from which the vision can become a reality.

We are seeking a hard-working, team-oriented individual who can provide oversight to design professionals during the planning/design phase, and then provide oversight during construction either as an Owner’s Representative, overseeing the general contractor/ construction manager, or as Project Manager, managing subcontractors and suppliers, including crafting scopes of work, scheduling, project accounting, RFIs, submittals, etc.

  • Proactively manage all project related accounting, including change orders. This will either entail reviewing general contractor / construction manager applications for payments and change order proposals, or processing subcontractor pay applications and thoroughly evaluating / vetting subcontractor change order proposals.
