As companies and individuals contemplate commercial and residential construction projects during 2021, there’s always a question at the beginning about “who” should manage the entire project.
Homeowners tend to have a great deal of excitement when designing and getting ready to build their home. Those with time flexibility often want to take the lead in construction oversight for the building project to make sure it’s done in alignment with their specifications and desires. Senior leadership in corporations, on the other hand, have much less time flexibility and tend to delegate commercial construction oversight to professionals in the industry skilled in managing them.
For “whomever” is tasked with the oversight of a construction project, it is essential for them to have management strategies that add value to the project, rather than cause headaches at every stage of it. This important topic is discussed in an article from Stonemark Construction Management titled, “Which Management Strategies Add Value to Construction Projects?”
Because value can be assessed tangibly and intangibly, the following value-based items are considered important to have when making decisions for any construction project:
- Reduced Costs and Time
- Lower Risk
- Assess and Balance Priorities
- Optimize Every Stage of the Project
- Higher Quality Management
All of the above items come close to guaranteeing that the person who commissioned the construction project with experience peace of mind from start to finish – which is probably the highest value item of all.
Stonemark’s article makes the case that hiring a professional construction manager, rather than managing the project yourself, is a much wiser decision leading to “peace of mind.” The complexity of a construction project can be a nightmare for someone outside the industry, causing avoidable delays, budget challenges, and lower quality workmanship.
Choosing to add a professional construction manager to your project team that is tasked with overseeing the entire project process, from design through completion, is a more efficient way to go. The construction manager (CM) can keep a watchful eye on project costs and materials to ensure the best “bang” for your buck. He/She can monitor the building process to ensure each step is done with quality and without shoddy shortcuts because they know what to look for as each stage is being built, along with how it is all supposed to come together. As challenges arise (and they always do), the CM easily and instinctively can pivot and reorganize priorities to keep the project on track to get done on time and within budget.
