This is maintenance work supervising a group of semi-skilled employees involved in the repair and maintenance of RRHA facilities and homes or frequently performing highly specialized work in general maintenance in one of the skilled trades with supervisory responsibilities. An employee in this class is responsible for the inspecting, planning and laying out of jobs and may supervise the work of maintenance crews engaged in the building or repair project. The work of incumbents without supervisory responsibility differs from that of the next lower level in that the work assignments are more complex, completed with a higher degree of independence and require broader trade knowledge and experience. Assignments are received in the form of work orders and require drawing sketches, making time and material estimates and requisitioning materials, and are subject to inspection during progress and upon completion for achievement of desired results by a higher level maintenance supervisor.
