We offer a wide range of construction management services to enable you to complete your job from start to finish.
What Is Construction Management and Why Does It Matter?
Construction management is a service that provides project owners with professional management throughout their projects. This includes the effective management of the schedule, quality, safety, scope, cost, and function of the project. A construction manager can help in any project delivery scenario. A construction manager is responsible to the project owner and must complete the project successfully, no matter the setting.
A construction management team is made up of the following different parties:
- The owner, who has commissioned the project to be completed or who financed the project or funded it directly.
- The architect or engineer, who will design the project.
- The general contractor, or the person who manages the sub-contractors and oversees the project’s day-to-day operations.
What Does a Construction Manager Do?
The construction manager represents the owner’s interest in the project and provides a complete oversight of the project for the owner. They work with each of the parties that are mentioned above to deliver the completed project on time, to the owner’s standard of scope, quality, and function, and either on or below budget. A construction manager is highly educated in their area of practice and uses their experience to develop a plan that meets all the project’s needs.
In addition to the above, a construction manager is responsible for the following:
- Scheduling subcontractors and monitoring their work.
- Troubleshooting any issues with the job site, plans, sub-constructors, etc.
- Reviewing requests for change.
- Eliminating unnecessary costs.
- Getting the proper inspections and permits.
- Negotiating prices on materials.
- Ordering the materials and inspecting the deliveries.
- Reviewing the bills.
Why Hire a Construction Manager?
Hiring a construction manager helps to ensure that your project is completed on budget, on time, and to your scope of quality. Running a project requires extensive experience; without that, there could be unnecessary expenses or time-delaying issues. If you hire a construction manager, you’ll be free to focus your time on your business instead of the construction aspect. Castle Development Group offers construction management services to the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas.
Construction Manager vs. General Contractor
A construction manager and a general contractor perform similar services, but the two have fundamental differences. A general contractor becomes an active aspect of your construction after the design process is complete and building plans are finalized. A construction manager is involved in the project from as early on as possible. General contractors may make a more significant profit if one of their projects is under budget. A construction manager generally requires a fixed or set fee.
Phases of Construction Management
The first phase of the construction management process is planning. Carefully planning out the project helps to determine what the project’s needs, goals, scopes for timeline, and budget are. During this time, the construction manager works with the engineers, architects, and other sub-contractors to agree on the goals and plan for potential setbacks so that they can factor them in for the project’s timelines and budget.
The next phase is preconstruction, when the bids are submitted for the general contractors, and applications are completed for the building permits. The construction teams are then hired using risk management practices to minimize issues before construction begins.
After the planning is complete, construction begins. The responsibilities of a construction manager that are listed above will apply here. Once construction is complete, everything will be turned over to the owner, and if any training is needed, then the owner will receive it at this point. The insurance must also be changed to permanent insurance for the property.
Safer Project Sites
When a construction manager begins a project, the priority is to keep everyone safe and protect the owner’s reputation and workers’ safety. The most up-to-date safety practices are followed and encouraged daily. Construction managers keep their job sites safe by making the final call if the weather becomes dangerous or another unforeseen condition compromises the job site’s safety. They’ll also develop a realistic timeframe that will allow each sub-contractor and worker to complete the project safely.
