If you have ever looked up at a skyscraper or wandered around a large commercial complex, you might have been in awe at the huge accomplishment and wondered how everything came together so well. The answer is that a project management team oversaw each component of the build to make sure every phase and aspect happened at the right time, was done the right way, and stayed on budget. Here are the key aspects of project management and their role in a commercial construction project:
- Communication – Everyone must be on the same page throughout a project and often it is the project management team that makes sure information is dissimulated to the appropriate people and companies. This can include making required notifications to government officials, the public, and local leaders. It also means keeping the client informed along the way for inspections and ongoing decisions.
- Time Management – Your project management team oversees the coordination of contractors, assuring supplies and materials are ordered and arrive on time, pulling any necessary permits and handling the inspections, and resolving problems that threaten to slow down the project.
- Budget Management – Even the best plans can get sidelined by a material or contractor issue. An experienced project management team has the knowledge and connections necessary to get the project back on track with minimal adverse effect on the budget. They will discuss with the client any changes that are recommended or how to stay on budget when one area goes over.
- Risk Management – A safe work site is imperative to a successful project. Risk management involves securing adequate insurance coverages, checking on licensing and bonding of contractors, and clarifying responsibilities of all parties to avoid litigation and other expenses.
