HVAC Project Managers are professionals who oversee the design, planning, and installation of heating, ventiliation, and air conditioning systems in new construction or existing buildings.
HVAC Project Managers are involved in all aspects of designing, planning, coordinating, staffing, and executing HVAC installation projects. They work with a wide variety of other professionals, including building owners, developers, architects, engineers and other contractors to ensure the HVAC systems are installed within the allotted budget and time schedule. Having a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering or related field can help in this position but significant experience with HVAC installations is more important for this career. Most HVAC Project Managers have a minimum of 5-10 years of experience in installation of commercial HVAC systems. Project Managers must be able to multitask and stay positive while troubleshooting in stressful situations. Project Managers lead a team of people during installations and should be personable, open-minded and energetic.
