What is construction management?
Construction managers are responsible for ensuring that a building project is completed safely, within an agreed time frame and budget.
They manage the practical side of the build, supervising the trades and contractors as well as working with other building professionals such as architects, surveyors and planners.
Construction managers ensure everyone works to an agreed plan, closely monitoring progress, inspecting work, setting budgets and dealing with contracts. They may oversee a whole site, or a big part of a large-scale, complex project.
