Typical Activities

Under general supervision, the Supervising Plumber primarily is responsible for supervising and working with one or more groups or crews of skilled journey-level plumbers and their semi-skilled assistants in the performance of general plumbing maintenance and repair work outlined in the series overview. Incumbents may also be responsible for overseeing the design and installation of plumbing equipment and systems for new construction and/or major modification projects. The Supervising Plumber is distinguished from the Lead Plumber by the scope of supervisory, project planning and coordination duties as well as the greater amount of time devoted to these activities.

Incumbents typically prioritize and coordinate the work of multiple crews or projects; assign work to qualified crew members; provide work and safety instructions; provide on-the-job training and instructions to less skilled workers in trade and safety practices; provide input on performance evaluations; monitor work in progress; inspect completed work to ensure it is in compliance with specifications, special instructions and sound trade practices; develop and maintain manual and/or computerized work record-keeping and/or maintenance management systems; prepare reports; and oversee a plumbing shop.

Work on new construction and remodels requires: collaborating with engineering and design departments; interpreting complicated plans and drawings; coordinating work schedules and work assignments to meet the overall construction/modification objectives; sequencing of work; ensuring the availability of required materials and equipment; analyzing operations; preparing cost and time estimates; and providing a high level of inspection to ensure appropriate building and safety codes are met. Incumbents also may design minor tenant improvements and coordinate and supervise the work of related trades workers on specific projects.
