Construction Project Management

Construction Project Management includes review of contracts, order materials, hire and schedule sub-contractors, resource planning and to provide quality control and insure that the construction project is completed on time and within allocated budget.

Planning and scheduling of activities involved in the construction process is extremely important to successfully achieve the goals of a construction project. Gantt Charts (bar charts), CPM (Critical Path Method) and PERT (Program Evaluation and Review Technique) are important tools used in scheduling of projects. There are many computer software available for planning, scheduling and resource allocation. Some of the common software are Primavera, MS-Project and Pertmaster.

A successful construction manager should have good leadership skills,  effective communication skills,  sound organisation skills with knowledge of dispute resolution techniques, He should be able to motivate the construction team. Good knowledge of accounting & finance and quantity survey is also required.
