Construction Project Manager Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Construction Project Manager in Houston:
"Take Your Time."
Many of us in the construction industry want to "be-our-own-man/woman." This often leads to us working long hours to climb the ladder and get ahead. Working hard is a good thing, and necessary in our field, but take the time to master your current responsibilities (and stretch yourself a little with some new ones) before trying to get to the next level. The result is that you will be much better equipped to handle the new role when you get there, meaning better quality of work, less stress, and ultimately, better home life. Most of us will make it to that Project Manager or Project Superintendent role at some point. If you take five more years, thats a drop in the bucket compared to your 40-year career. And you'll have 5 more years of quality work that your reputation is tied to. Basically, be patient and focus on the work in front of you.

We All should aspire to be self governing and honest with one self set the example for honesty don't the hand that feed you alway try to help those less fortunate than yourself love what you do and it with urgently and passion it is contagious and others will learn.

Construction Project Manager in Seattle:
"Project Scheduling."
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.

"What to know if you become a Construction Manager."
Be prepared to learn something new everyday. You will never be bored. You will never see the same project twice.

Construction Project Manager in Washington:
"What To Know Before Starting."
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.
