Project Management
In its simplest form, managing a construction project is comprised of information and workflow. Information is provided in the form of plans, specifications and contracts, and the work is performed in a combined series of predetermined tasks. Most projects are similar in nature and the processes are quite repetitive. We learn something new from every project and use this knowledge to improve the processes to the benefit of the next project.

Our performance relies on the actions of others, so we want to create an environment that supports the success of all the vested parties.

  • owner / architect / design team / consultants
  • builder / administrative staff / project team
  • trade contractors / suppliers / services

Information:
  • provided by the owner
  • organized by the builder
  • distributed to the vendors
  • verified by the project team

Workflow:
  • create an environment for success
  • provide resources needed for top performance
  • manage in the best interest of all parties
  • achieve preferred builder status
  • demand top performance and best pricing

What Is Project Management?
Project management is the coordinating effort to fulfill the goals of the project. The project manager, as the leader of the project team, is responsible for this effort and its ultimate result. Project managers use knowledge, skills, tools, and methodologies to do the following:
  • Identify the goals, objectives, requirements, and limitations of the project.
  • Coordinate the different needs and expectations of the various project stakeholders, including team members, resource managers, senior management, customers, and sponsors.
  • Plan, execute, and control the tasks, phases, and deliverables of the project based on the identified project goals and objectives.
  • Close the project when completed and capture the knowledge accrued.
Project managers are also responsible for balancing and integrating competing demands to implement all aspects of the project successfully, as follows:
  • Project scope: Specifying the specific work to be done for the project.
  • Project time: Setting the finish date of the project as well as any interim deadlines for phases, milestones, and objectives.
  • Project cost: Calculating and tracking the project costs and budget.
  • Project human resources: Signing on the team members who will carry out the tasks of the project.
  • Project procurement: Acquiring the material and equipment resources with which to carry out project tasks.
  • Project communication: Conveying assignments, updates, reports, and other information with team members and other stakeholders.
  • Project quality: Identifying the acceptable level of quality for the project goals and objectives.
