Construction best practices and strategies are based on a combination of project management methodologies and industry standards that have been proven to contribute significantly to a project’s success. Successful construction managers are experienced and versatile administrators of best practices and strategies. Because most owners are not aware of the knowledge and skill required to build, best practices include retaining a construction management professional to manage the project.

Effective overall project management methodology must start with defining the scope and objectives of the project, retaining the right project team to articulate those goals, and strategizing the project management processes that will be used to execute and control the project. At every phase, your construction manager’ role is to keep those goals in sight as he manages schedule, costs and quality. It requires skill born of experience to implement the technical practices to keep the project on track. It takes strong, strategic leadership to anticipate and address project challenges. Professional construction managers are schooled in managing complex projects and are essential to keep large projects on time, on budget and at an acceptable risk.
