What does it take to manage a construction project?
Managing a construction project must be one of the most difficult jobs there is. To do it requires a large skill set. Others are only learned through experience, which SFMS as acquired over 20 years of.
Skills required to manage a construction project:
You may need to understand the performance of various types of equipment and machines. Some of these are used in the construction process while others will be included in the facility. By having our own fleet and machinery, SFMS is able to understand which equipment is needed based on the scope of work for each project.
You should be able to plan the construction process to ensure the project is completed in the shortest possible time, meeting the client’s milestone dates and access requirements. SFMS is able to sit with our clients from the initial stages of project planning and development through the construction phase and project delivery. We work toward a single goal - satisfying our clients’ needs.
The Project Manager has to procure materials and place subcontract orders, and then manage the delivery process and the subcontractors’ performance. Using our diverse construction portfolio, SFMS's specialized divisions and subsidiaries ensure that each project is matched with appropriate resources and expertise.
You have to ensure that the construction project is delivered to the required quality standards, and in order to do this must be familiar with the project specifications, quality control documentation and testing procedures.
One of the most important aspects of managing a construction project is to be able to manage, work with, and interact with people. Construction projects involve a number of different parties, such as the client, subcontractors, the public, designers, project staff, and workers.
Then just as you have mastered all the problems on one project and successfully completed you move to a new project and do it all over again. Often the new project is for a new client in a different location, working with a new team, with different subcontractors and suppliers. The project could be completely different and result in you using different skill sets. No construction project is exactly the same as the previous one; each is unique, with its own set of problems and parameters.
From small-to-large interior and exterior construction projects, the foundation of all of our construction work is based on solid relationships with public and private clients. SFMS can give you the confidence to rely, time and again, on our experience, two-decades of industry knowledge, and in-house expertise to make your vision a reality.
