When hiring an employee and determining what salary is appropriate, the first thing one might consider is to check an excellent source, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The job description for a "Chief Building Engineer" normally applies to an individual working in a high rise office building or in our town, a Strip hotel with millions of square feet.
In Sun City Anthem we have a total of approximately 145,000 square feet and outside maintenance of about 160 villas.
