Q: What is it like working as a Construction Project Manager?

January 2016
"What To Know Before Starting."
Construction Project Manager:
To be a successful project manager, it is important to be receptive to the information provided by your mentor. It is important to understand the documentation and how it all relates to the contract and the billing. Ask your mentor to give you a flow chart to explain the inter relationship between the contract with the owner and subcontractor and how the filling process works. This will help you manage your subcontractors more effectively. Be sure to have mastery of the blueprints. This will help you write an effective scope of work for your subcontractors. If you do not know how to read blueprints, make sure you get training. In order to excel, be receptive to what you are told and ask as many questions as possible. You will make mistakes - take these positively and learn. Once you mess up a task once, you will likely not make the same mistake again.

"Project Scheduling."
Construction Project Manager:
As quickly as possible, find out everyone's skill level and general willingness to take instruction. Use that knowledge to delegate tasks to optimize efficiency and high quality. Develope a rapport with each person and keep positive. If they see you upset it will upset them, so stay cool and project leadership. You'll want everyone to count on you for answers, be sure you can give them one without coming off as inept or totally useless. Keep your materials, equipment, tools, and safety gear all in exceptional order. I've found if you focus the majority of your energy on the above that the remainder tends to be easier to handle. There will always be times more stressful than others. Stay true to you're employees and you'll get through it.
