Permanent

Venor is proud to partner with Stewiacke Home Hardware on their search for an Estimator to join their team. Stewiacke Home Hardware Building Centre is a family-owned group of businesses in the building supply and home construction sectors. Business units include traditional hardware and building supply and installation services, truss fabrication and turn-key new home construction.

As the Estimator, you will report to the Store Manager and work closely with Home Hardware’s valued customers to review all plans and specifications for home construction projects.

What You Will Be Doing:

  • Develop plans and specifications for home construction projects while accommodating to customer budgets.
  • Estimate both the material and labour requirements for projects as well as explaining the need and use of such materials to the customer.
  • Prepare lists of materials based upon blueprints.
  • Understand and be able to explain building code requirements to customers.

What We’re Looking For:

As the ideal candidate, you have 5+ years of residential construction experience and a keen understanding of the technical requirements for home construction projects. A diploma in architectural technology, architectural technician, or construction technology is considered an asset. Drafting experience is also considered an asset.

As the successful candidate, you have proven experience using estimating programs and tools to prepare estimates for clients in a timely manner and are skilled in designing and blueprint reading. You can work independently and are self-motivated to get the job done with little supervision. 

At Venor, we embrace a culture of belonging in the workplace. No matter who you are, where you’re from, how you think, what you believe in, or who you love, we welcome your application. We all come from different backgrounds and different walks of life, bringing in unique perspectives and experiences. We encourage applications from 2SLGBTQ+, Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC), women, newcomers to Canada, and people with disabilities. If you require any accommodation in the application and interview process, please let us know (including different materials or otherwise).
