What does a Construction Manager do?

The construction manager will have many responsibilities and these include the following:

  • Planning - From the outset, it is the responsibility of the Construction PM to plan the build process, this means producing a critical path and understanding the timing of each stage. It is essential to ensuring that the project is completed on time.
  • Resource Allocation - Any building project will need resources from bricks and mortar to tools and basic amenities. It is their responsibility to have an understanding of what these are and ensure they are available.
  • Staff Management - They will be responsible for recruiting a team and allocating tasks to relevant managers. It may mean identifying suitable contractors who can complete the work. The important thing is their understanding at which stage of the process each trade will need to be recruited.
  • Setting Benchmarks - An integral aspect of the ongoing monitoring of a project is setting benchmarks to monitor progress, this allows the Construction Project Manager to identify whether or not the project is on target to finish on time and within budget.
  • Budget Management – They are responsible for the financial planning and monitoring of the project. To avoid going over budget a PM should consider continually forecasting, keeping the team informed of forecasts and changes and managing the scope meticulously, so knowing the costs for unplanned construction work or resources and keeping that set-aside.
