The base characteristics of a construction project aren’t going to change based on whether or not you hire a construction project manager. Structures are built from the ground to the top-most point with several intricacies in-between. The true value of a construction project manager lies in recognizing all of the spaces in-between and ensuring that the project runs smoothly from start to finish.
Today we’re going to discuss five reasons to hire a construction project manager for your projects in central Florida. We feel that having all of your ducks in a row is extremely important and that a project manager is the best way, hands down, to ensure that your ducks are behaving properly. The five reasons are preemptive problem solving, risk management, the promotion of open communication, project scope management, and quality control. But let’s take a closer look at each reason.
- Preemptive Problem Solving: Every project is going to face problems at one time or another. A good project manager will see potential problems coming from a mile away and be able to address them before they cause issues. Unless, of course, you want to deal with things as you go and risk a late project delivery.
- Risk Management: Every construction project is also at risk for potential safety hazards and issues. Risk management is one of the primary concerns of a project manager. Never wait until a risk is staring you in the face before you address it and prevent it.
- Promote Open Communication: Open, honest, clear, and concise communication is an absolute necessity in the construction world. Poor communication can lead to the poor relay of information, accidents, and injuries. A good project manager knows how to promote open communication between teams.
- Project Scope Management: Scope creep happens when you least expect it. We watch scope creep very closely and ensure that it does not have the opportunity to sabotage the project from the inside. Each objective requires a set amount of time and money to complete – scope creep can cause you to deliver late and over budget.
- Quality Control: The project manager sees and approves every objective as it is completed. This is why it’s extremely important to choose a construction project manager who has extensive experience in both construction and project management.
