Project Management is a key role within the varied and diverse world of construction. It is you who is responsible for the delivery of a project on time, on budget and compliant with all of the laws and regulations affecting your field.

Project managers are involved from the off and remain twinned with the development until it is completed and your clients are fully satisfied. Drawing all of the strings of development together requires great skill, organisation, and thorough knowledge of the processes of building, the current market conditions and the ability to provide a service in a controlled and structured fashion.

Investors will look to project managers to analyse, assess and comment on the risk involved in the project. Depending on the exact role, project managers will find themselves at the heart of a project from its initial conception through completion. Project managers will be involved with the funding of a project. Project managers must provide infallible costing budgets and a design that is popular and feasible.

Managers must survey a site in its current condition to assess its best possible use, and act as the link between contractor and client. They must keep control of contractors, all the while providing updated timescales on when the project is due for completion to funders and clients.

Project managers ensure all necessary regulation with the building processes are complied with; sustainability, green issues, insurance, health and safe. Ultimately project managers need to provide the product expected on time and on budget, meeting the needs of the original investors and those who will occupy the completed space.
