What is a Construction Project Manager
Construction Project Managers are members of a construction team tasked with the responsibility of the planning, budgeting, scheduling and ensuring compliance with safety regulations. Project Managers create plans for all stages of construction from the drawing board to the last day of construction. In construction projects of all sizes, it is important for a team and the overall project to stick to a defined budget. Budgets essentially create a financial safety net that prevents overspending. It is also very important for construction to have and follow the planned schedule or timeline. If the timeline is not followed the project end date can be postponed which can lead to unhappy customers and unhappy investors, both are bad for business. Construction Project Managers ensure that construction jobs run as smoothly and safely as possible.
