Personal Summary

Re: Possible employment opportunities

 

Ladies and Gentlemen:

As I pass the 25-year mark at NYC Department of Parks and Recreation as the Director of the Buildings Construction Unit, I saw your employment opportunity and determined that your employment needs may coincide with the commencement of a new career in project management.  

I have managed a wide variety of construction work over the years including: new building construction, building renovations, restoration work and retrofit of equipment in historic houses. Always working with interested stakeholders to achieve a positive outcome for all, including building department certifications, Public Design Commission(PDC) and Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) approval.  I have managed a large amount of environmental remediation projects involving: lead, asbestos and contaminated soils which are typical of older properties.  

In addition to managing the construction, I continue to mix the concrete, pull the wire, or repair the equipment from time-to-time myself.

I am confident that I can adapt my experience and skills to your requirements and offer you the leadership and experience you are looking for. Feel free to e-mail me or call me on my cell to arrange an interview.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Sincerely,

 

Dan Merkl

Work Experience

Director of Construction
Mar 1993 - May 2018 NYC Dept. of Parks

As the Director my primary responsibility is to oversee the implementation and execution of the agency’s capital projects building construction program; currently consisting of 25 employees and an additional 18 consultant employees managing approximately 65 construction projects totaling approximately $140,000,000.  This to include: demolition of buildings, construction new buildings, renovation of existing buildings, life-safety systems, reconstruction and replacement of retaining walls and sea walls, removal and replacement of agency electrical and mechanical, fire alarm infrastructure, structural stabilization and restoration of historic houses.

Currently I am looking to step back somewhat in order to get a little closer to the actual construction work.
