Why Construction Project Management is Important for Construction Businesses

Construction Tech Review | Wednesday, October 06, 2021

Construction project management can assist project managers in controlling all phases of their projects by organizing their diverse components and automating tasks to increase efficiency.

FREMONT, CA: Whether it's a shopping mall or a single-family residence, construction projects are highly organized activities. They have a lot of moving elements and individuals who need to be synchronized perfectly.

Like any other project, construction project management comprises stages that range from design to planning to schedule to the initial building. Every stage is challenging enough on its own, but when combined with the rest of the project, they become increasingly difficult. This is the primary reason why project management software is essential for the construction sector.

What is Construction Project Management?

Construction management, in a nutshell, is the process of overseeing construction projects. When it comes to controlling a construction project compared to other projects, the significant difference is that construction is mission-driven. That is to say, the project's organization expires when the project is completed.

While project management is commonly described as managing resources throughout a project's life cycle using different tools and processes to regulate scope, expense, time, quality, and many more,  operating in the construction sector necessitates a broader perspective. Construction management typically involves a broader range of limitations unique to the design and construction of construction projects.

Construction Project Management Team

Project Owner

The project owner finances the project, either personally or indirectly. Additionally, the owner oversees the project from a higher level and makes critical decisions like setting the bidding process, appointing the contractor, and deciding on the project delivery strategy.

Construction Project Manager

A construction project manager is in charge of project management. This individual is responsible for the construction project's scheduling, coordination, budgeting, and monitoring.

General Contractor

A general contractor supervises the task site's everyday activities and delivers the necessary equipment, materials, and people for the project's execution phase. General contractors frequently hire subcontractors to complete specific jobs.
