Are you cut out to be a Construction Manager?

Construction Manager

 

Every construction site has multiple experts and levels of supervision. These experts could be hourly workers, supervisors, engineers, project managers, and even agency authorities. However, the key to a smooth functioning construction site is the leadership of a construction manager. Construction managers are responsible for a smooth, progressive project from pre-design to closing. They have a very important role in on-site safety and building code compliance.

Every day is different for a construction manager based on the phase of the project. One day could involve a stack of progress meetings, while another could be spent monitoring the site. Construction managers must be versatile to be successful.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CONSTRUCTION MANAGERS
A construction manager’s organizational skills are what drive a successful building project. They have a wide range of responsibilities, such as:

  • Quality management. They make sure that all construction and supervising workers are completing tasks according to approved design plans, and using the required materials.
  • Cost management. Construction managers must be on top of the project at all times. Construction sites cost a lot of money, and one simple mistake can cost thousands.
  • Safety management. Construction managers make sure that the entire construction site complies with legal regulations. They also oversee construction workers for any possible safety hazards throughout the entire project.
  • Construction administration. Construction managers help manage data and information, including contracts, bidding, and reporting. There is a chance you might spot a construction manager in their office every once in a while.

LEADERSHIP ON AND OFF THE SITE
Construction management requires demanding leadership qualities. They must be able to communicate with a large, diverse group to complete projects effectively. Construction managers must be quick thinkers when an issue arises either on-site or in a business meeting. Deadlines must be met by construction managers to keep clients satisfied while following the project schedule.
