Reasons to Hire a Professional Construction Manager for your Project
Few people have the skills or time to manage a high-value, complex construction project (whether residential or commercial), and even fewer should take on the risks. In a business where time is money, costly errors abound. When compared to the risks of undertaking a major project without expert assistance, the value of an experienced construction manager has a positive cost-benefit ratio.
Consider this: how much would you be willing to pay to avoid a protracted delay or a complete redesign? Asset Building Systems will professionally manage the project to maximize resources, eliminate difficulties, and ensure that it is completed on time.
Representation of Objectivity and Expertise
A construction project manager’s goal is to provide objective project management and technical expertise in order to represent the best interests of the owner and the project. The construction manager will oversee the entire project from beginning to end as the owner’s representative, including viability, authorization, pre-design, design collaboration, budget, timetable, grade and functional, risk evaluation, and project team engagement and synchronization.
Lower Total Project Costs
When a detailed scope of work is developed and the total project budget is determined during the early planning and pre-construction phases, the majority of savings opportunities are recognized. Early on, bring in your construction manager to assist with project planning, cost planning, and essential design and project plan guidance.
Controls for the Project
The proprietor, general contractor, and architect work together to develop an “oversight” system that allows crucial design decisions to be made based on cost, time, and quality as well as aesthetics and function. Owners are routinely asked to make decisions without taking into account additional issues that could cause delays or increase costs beyond what the contractor anticipated.
Risk management is a component of construction management. Construction involves risk, which is defined as anything that could go wrong. To protect the owner from responsibility, a construction risk management plan must identify, analyze, and minimize risks. Financial risks such as budget overruns, unmanageable variation orders, or highly unstable market pricing; unexpected ground conditions such as dangerous chemicals; the possibility of structural damage, collisions, or mistakes; unreasonable expectations; and contract and insurance disputes are just some of the risks exposures.
Allow your construction manager to hire and manage the best workforce in order to complete the best project possible. Their knowledge and commitment to managing the project in the owner’s best interests yield benefits on every level, from contract and insurance risk management to improved quality, budget, and schedule management. Above all, a skilled professional construction manager will foster collaboration among the team and the owner as they work toward a single goal: a building program that is completed on time and on budget while meeting the project’s goals and objectives.
