Put simply, the Project Manager (PM) is responsible for the success of a construction project. They oversee every aspect, including the planning, execution, monitoring, control and closure. Project Managers ensure that timeframe targets and budgets are met. Additionally, it is critical that a good client relationship is maintained throughout the project.
A PM’s responsibility extends beyond the project itself to the management of their colleagues and day-to-day activities. For example, they may need to check the correct building materials have arrived at the site on time or explain the day’s activities to their team. As part of the monitoring process, PM’s must regularly report on the project’s progression to sector management and the client. In fact, client support is a big part of the role. PM’s will plan and arrange visits to potential, new and existing clients to ensure they have everything they need.
