Are you considering hiring a construction manager? If so, you may want to have a better idea of what you can expect from a construction management team. There are a number of different things that a construction manager can do for you.

Protect Your Interests

A construction manager serves as an objective representative of your company with an interest in protecting your company and your project. Not only does a construction manager help to ensure your project runs smoothly, but a construction manager also works to ensure your project remains on budget and that you get the most value for the work that is being completed.

Keep Your Costs Down

With the expertise and experience that your construction manager has to offer, your construction manager can help to keep the overall costs down of your project. With the help of contract negotiation and competitive bidding, your construction manager helps to keep down the initial projected costs of the project. Similarly, as the project gets underway, your project manager helps to reduce change orders and to eliminate duplicate scope and costs associated with your project.

Provide Advice

While you may have a pretty clear idea of what you want to do with your project, a construction manager can also provide additional insights and advice to help you meet your business goals. Not only can the construction manager help to obtain the best qualified team for your project, but your construction manager can also help you to create a realistic and reliable budget. Your construction manager can also create a construction schedule while also enhancing controls to reduce the potential for defects and poor workmanship.

Protect You from Liability

With a construction manager in place to oversee your project, you receive an extra layer of protection from liability as it relates to your project. Your project manager can also review paperwork, including contracts and invoices, to further ensure you are legally protected.
