What’s A Construction Manager and What Do They Do?

The next time you drive by a new office building that’s going up, think about all the pieces of that puzzle that have to come together and all the people involved with that project:  The owner, developer, financing groups… then the architects, designers & engineers… Don’t forget the maze of city zoning and other government regulation.  Only after all of this is completed do the contractors and tradesmen come into the picture.  And all of this has to be coordinated to meet strict timelines and unforgiving budgets.

For the owners of that building, time IS money. They are making sure, through the whole process, that not a dime of their money is being wasted, that the schedule is adhered to, that everyone is doing their job.  That’s why they have a construction manager (aka project manager) from day one to oversee all of the details.

That’s what I do… I’m a construction manager…only for homeowners like you.

A construction manager acts as the owner’s representative, in other words, the owner’s eyes and ears.  Construction managers are invaluable to the success of a remodeling project because supervision of a remodeling project is key.  Even if you have carefully prepared plans coupled with keen attention to detail during construction, using a construction manager from the start of your project (i.e. pre-design) through completion will ultimately help ensure your remodeling project gets done right, on time and on budget.
