Commercial construction projects are, well, a project. In order to make sure your company does not waste the time and money put into the project, it is imperative that everything on site runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Additionally, many of these projects will require numerous subcontractors to handle the various aspects of the project. You will need someone for the electrical work, someone to communicate with the land and zoning officials, someone for the plumbing, and you will have various vendors for all the different supplies needed to successfully complete the project. Overall, there are a lot of moving parts happening, and it can be extremely easy for miscommunication to occur between the different parties and departments. This is where the project manager comes into play.
A project manager will be there to facilitate the communication channels between vendors, subcontractors, and clients. This way, all bits of information must pass through the same person so you can have an overall idea of where the project is without having to reach out to so many different people. On top of that, the project manager is responsible for ensuring that deadlines are being met and everything stays within your budget. So, if something starts to go astray it is up to the project manager to find a suitable solution.
That is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to making sure you are working with a qualified project manager. The project manager is responsible for acquiring all necessary permits and ensuring the site, building, and workers are all following the proper regulations. If a project manager fails to adequately perform this responsibility, there could be long and expensive repercussions for your company. Similarly, you want to work with a project manager that can effectively and easily communicate with you about the progress of the construction project. You do not want to work with someone that will be difficult to reach or cannot provide timely and informative updates to both your questions and concerns.
