Construction project managers oversee the building of homes, offices, stores and public works projects such as bridges and dams. Typically, a construction manager is involved from the early stages of development until the project is completed. Depending on the employer and the project, travel might be required or the manager may work out of a temporary office on the job site.
At the beginning of a project, prepares a plan that details the steps required, and then calculates the material costs and personnel needed to complete the project. He prepares a timeline to show when each stage must be completed if the final deadline is to be met.
determines the permits necessary and ensures that they are obtained.
reviews the budget for the project and prepares a detailed plan to allocate the funds by stage or by labor, materials and contingencies.
Involved in negotiating with vendors and suppliers to obtain the best price and delivery schedule.
He might solicit bids from several suppliers before making a decision. If subcontractors are needed, he is normally responsible for selecting them and negotiating the terms of their contracts.
negotiate with one or more labor union representatives to finalize a contract between the builder and the union.
Depending on the scope of the project, interview and select all personnel working on the site. On a large project, he may choose only his assistant managers and allow them to make hiring decisions. typically responsible for explaining worksite policy, project goals and safety procedures to workers, regardless of who hired them.
Construction projects do not always progress according to schedule. Bad weather, delays in receiving supplies, accidents, and building inspectors who are behind schedule can play havoc with the manager’s initial plan. In these cases, he must revise his schedule as needed, reordering tasks or assignments so that the final deadline can still be met. Budget revisions might also be needed, especially if schedule changes are going to require additional manpower or overtime.
The degree with which a construction project manager is involved in the daily routine depends on the size of the project, the number of assistants he has and his personal management style. At minimum, the construction manager organizes activities and meets with his assistant managers or supervisors to review goals and progress.
supervise support staff, such as bookkeepers and secretaries.
Must prepare reports for their superiors or clients. Items typically included in these reports include cost overruns, workplace injuries, issues with trade unions or the causes of construction delays. Other reports that might be needed include incident reports if a worker is injured. Some managers prepare the reports themselves, while others furnish the data to a staff member who prepares the report.
