<ul><li><p>Douglas B. Cason D.O.B. 5/01/65 </p><p>To: Employee Services, </p><p>I am writing this cover letter seeking employment as a commercial construction </p><p>project engineer. </p><p>My occupational past has been focused on business management and construction </p><p>supervision. From high school graduation I entered into construction in the electrical trade </p><p>for 5 years, obtained an NEC residential specialist licence, and then continued for 3 more </p><p>years in commercial new construction projects. My (then) wife and I were hired by Master </p><p>Property Management in Dallas Texas as resident on site managers over the largest of eight </p><p>Stor-N-Lok self storage / office park facilities in the Dallas area. It is located at 9350 </p><p>Skillman Ave. and consists of 1,024 units of 10 sizes and includes an adjoining office park </p><p>with 24 office suites and 15 commercial warehouses. The facility was 38% occupied and in </p><p>desperate physical and financial condition when MPM took possession. I oversaw the entire </p><p>property rehabilitation including replacement of 4 roofs and repairing over 400 storage units </p><p>with water damage. Many units had been abandonded for years, and the book keeping was a </p><p>total mess. Once all eight buildings received new paint in the red and grey colors of the Stor-</p><p>N-Lok image the property took on a new life. New black top drives and striping preceded </p><p>new security systems and cameras. Renovating the leasing office and apartment followed as </p><p>well as the adjoining office park being restored. The construction renovation took 3 months </p><p>to complete. Over the next 12 months we successfully raised the occupancy to 93%. I learned </p><p>all facets of self-storage management including; leases, scheduling relief managers and </p><p>ground maintenance staff, accounting, collections, overlocks, make readies, and conducting </p><p>monthly auctions. My wife decided she would be happier living with her parents and moving </p><p>to California, so she left me. The management company would not allow me to continue on </p><p>my own since they required a married couple in the position. I moved from on site manager at </p><p>MPM into a position of physical property supervisor within the company. On behalf of the </p><p>property owners, I oversaw property rehabilitations; maintenance and tenant build outs for 20 </p><p>commercial retail strip centers and low rise office buildings. I then started DC Commercial </p><p>Finish, a commercial general contracting construction company. Over the next 5 years I </p><p>contracted to build out the interior finish work of lease spaces from MPM and The Brennan </p><p>Company Property Management on the many properties they managed. As a business owner I </p><p>performed all facets of a construction business; estimating, sub-contracts, procurement, </p><p>scheduling, obtained building permits and all city inspections. I also self-performed much of </p><p>the work, supervised progress, maintained quality control &amp; customer relations, created AIA </p><p>G702/703 payment applications and paid subcontractors all while maintaining a clean, safe </p><p>job site and adhering to OSHA safety standards. Over the next 7 years I went on to work as a </p><p>construction superintendant for 3 leading GCs in the downtown Dallas area working </p><p>primarily in the high rise buildings on high end interior finish projects including three multi-</p><p>floor penthouse build outs. During that time I increased my knowledge and use of Microsoft </p><p>Office Suite -Word, Excel and Project Scheduling. Continuing to expand my career expertise, </p><p>6003 S. 64th</p><p> West Ave. </p><p>Tulsa, OK 74107 </p><p>Cell: 918-508-1626 </p><p>Email: </p><p>Cover Letter </p></li><li><p>I moved to Tulsa where I supervised several ground up structural steel, metal building and </p><p>wood framed multi-tenant type projects, serving not only as a site superintendent but also as </p><p>project engineer and manager. I utilized my skills in Excel to build many complex formulated </p><p>spreadsheets to track everything from entire project budgets and GC billing to creating </p><p>subcontractor (AIA 702 &amp; 703 style) payment applications, tracking purchase orders, </p><p>submittals, RFIs, ASIs, etc. I exercised my skills not only in project scheduling and </p><p>supervision, but also in performing take-offs &amp; quantifying, obtaining bids and checking bid </p><p>scope completeness, reviewing and organizing multi-million dollar budgets, going over plans </p><p>to identify problems and build-ability, looking for ways to reduce the cost while </p><p>maintaining quality and customer satisfaction. During the past 11 years working in the Tulsa </p><p>market, I have had the opportunity to learn 3 project management software products; Master </p><p>Builder, Computer Ease and CoreCon. </p><p>Over the past 32 years, I have managed and supervised over 98 million dollars worth </p><p>of commercial construction projects. </p><p>Through all of the years, projects and broad range of experiences, I have come to </p><p>discover my strengths and weaknesses well. I am very meticulous when it comes to numbers </p><p>and the details are where I thrive. I am very comfortable either building formulated </p><p>spreadsheets in Excel, reviewing submittals or building a detailed project schedule. I have </p><p>found that my personality is easy going and comprehensive, one that gets along with </p><p>everyone. I am professional and merge well into any working environment. I am very </p><p>personable, have a quick sense of humor, and make friends easily with everyone I meet. I </p><p>have an ability to reason out situations, which works to my advantage when diffusing </p><p>conflict. I am sensitive to company inner-relations and have learned how to think before I act. </p><p>I let others lead when required while taking control when placed in authority; however Im </p><p>not afraid to make decisions when needed. I have never compromised a companys integrity </p><p>for personal gain. I am clean cut, honest, forthright, ethical, dependable, responsible and </p><p>reliable. My experiances have shown me that I am best suited to fit the duties of a </p><p>construction project engineers position, moreso than a manager or superintendant. </p><p>My wife and I have been happily married for 14 years; have 6 children and 5 </p><p>grandchildren between us. We currently have 3 children still living at home, Jessica 9, Karina </p><p>18 and Nathan 20 who is a junior in ORU this year. We have been members of Victory </p><p>Christian Church since we moved to Tulsa in 2005. I will devote myself to the company and </p><p>strive to meet the expectations of those for whom I am working for. </p><p>Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and consider me for employment. </p><p>Please review my resume attached. </p><p>Sincerely, </p><p>Douglas B.
