Introduction to Construction Management

By Shaya Mesiamifard

The U.S. Census Bureau states, outlay on U.S. construction projects has progressively increased over the past five years. In 2016, the U.S. industry was valued at nearly $1.2 trillion, up 47 percent from 2011. Certainly, construction is a busy, prosperous and competitive market. In order to make a positive progression and to establish a smooth work flow going on we need to have some sort of construction management for each project. According to Construction Management Association of America, “Construction Management is a professional management practice consisting of an array of services applied to construction projects and programs through the planning, design, construction and post construction phases for the purpose of achieving project objectives including the management of quality, cost, time and scope.” 

Construction management is best done by people with a detailed information of construction, such as civil engineers or architects. However, some aspects of this work, such as financial planning or procurement, can be done by people who do not have a construction background. A layman can gain enough expertise to work as a construction project manager, with enough training and experience. The main characteristics of construction management are: 

  • Construction scheduling 
  • Quality control 
  • Contract management 
  • Construction finance management
