Not sure you need a construction project manager?

In today’s tech-savvy world, the idea of project managing your own property build may seem straightforward. So do you or don’t you need a Construction Project Manager?

Understanding that you need to coordinate contractors, suppliers and manage costs may give you the confidence to tackle the task. However, what happens if there are delays in supplies? what happens if contractors are called out to another job? what happens if materials are discontinued? what happens if there is an underlying unforeseen safety issue? what happens if timings slip?

These are just a few questions that may occur in even the simplest of builds that a Construction Project Manager will identify from the offset.

Knowing these details and pre-empting them from the beginning of a project will save you, the developer, time, money, and your sanity.

Construction Project Managers oversee the build to meet realistic and achievable time frames within an agreed budget.

By providing direction on typical construction practices, enforce building regulation and specification requirements by working closely with architects, engineers, and contractors; Construction PMs will help mitigate overspending freeing up your valuable time that you can use more efficiently on your day-to-day tasks.

Having the knowledge, the expertise and the contacts make Construction Project Managers an essential member of your team to deliver the project successfully with as little disruption as possible. And if any disputes occur, well that is where your Construction Project Manager can also guide and support you.

So, ask yourself…Do you have the know-how to take your build on independently? Do you have enough funds to compensate any delays? And do you really want to be manging multiple contractors whilst also arranging potential buyers?
