What is Construction Management?

Construction management is a highly professional system designed to facilitate planning, coordination and control of a project from inception to completion. Qualified construction managers use specialized project management techniques to manage a project’s schedule, costs and quality. They provide managerial expertise, control budgets, initiate cost savings ideas, mitigate risk and ensure the flow of communication. Their role is to represent the best interests of the owner and the project by ensuring the project progresses smoothly and achieves the owner’s programmatic and budgetary objectives.

Professional construction managers provide services that differ from general contractors as they typically do not perform construction themselves but oversee all apects of the entire project. An effective construction manager has strong leadership skills and depth of experience in a wide spectrum of construction methods and technologies. Their bigger view of the project as a whole is essential in order to manage and coordinate the many project team members, each of whom is focused on their own particular contractual role. For large or complex projects, construction managers are considered fundamental for project success.
