Construction Project Management


What is the Definition,Functions & Objectives of Construction Project Management? Importance of construction management? What are the construction technology required in building construction?What are the construction management courses that will boost your knowledge?




Definition of Construction Management 


Construction of project management is a construction method whereby planning,organising,scheduling and overseeing many tasks involved in a construction project.

Project manager is the one who actually  implement this method to the construction.

Construction Project Management is actually a total mixture of  Engineering and Management of business,money,time,people.
The process of Construction Project Management for bigger project is very complex,because it takes science,engineering knowledge,time management,money, all at the same time.


NOW , YOU GET A SMALL IDEA OF WHAT CONSTRUCTION OF MANAGEMENT IS ALL ABOUT.


LETS MOVE FORWARD A LITTLE BIT.




Functions of Construction Management


By implementing construction project management method we can ensure that the construction project is built as per plan.
From the above definition,we can clearly assume that this method -will minimise the budget and time  of the project and there will be no compromisation in quality of construction work.

In construction management,project manager is the key of perfection.
The quality,budget,time of project depends on the project manager.Its project manager's duty to maximise the effort of his co-workers and labours.

I have provided a list on the  functions of  construction project management.

  • Improves the quality of work for construction.
  • Process of construction strictly follows the building plan or any construction design.
  • Less time consuming as this gives you a right direction of work.
  • Construction projects can be done within the specified budget.
YOU CANNOT SEPARATE THE ROLE OF PROJECT MANAGER WHILE TALKING ABOUT CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT.


ROLE OF  PROJECT MANAGER/CONSTRUCTION MANAGER

  • Scheduling and planning of the work under the required guideline to fulfil the client's demand.
  • obtain all permits that are necessary to construct any project(like:design sanction etc)
  • Hiring and supervising workers
  • making review on the entire project to understand the demand and resources available for the project.
  • procurement of land is also determined by the construction manager.
  • its the duty of construction manager that the total cost/budget of the work should not get surpassed the available budget.
  • maintaining the quality of work is a part of construction manager's responsibility.
  • Providing safety to the labours and his co-workers during construction.
NOW, you can understand that the role of of construction manager in CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGEMENT is huge.

The overall work efficiency of the project directly depends on the role of construction management.
Actually,the construction project management remains only a theoretical method until construction manager implement that in practically.


PROJECT PLANNING


Project planning is a part of project management.It actually defines many things like how the project will be executed ,monitored or controlled.


There are some steps required in project planning which is given below-



  • INITIATION- Before starting the project,project manager need to evaluate that whether the project is feasible or not. After completion of all agreement the work goes to the next level.
  • PLANNING- A proper planning of project is very necessary.It gives us right direction about how the project will be implemented or monitored.
  • EXECUTION- After the planning of project,Its time to take ACTION.This is the step where the basic works of any project begun.
  • PERFORMANCE & MONITORING- In the step of PERFORMANCE & MONITORING  the role of project manager is highly required as this can affect the overall quality of the project.
  • CLOSURE- This is the final stage of project planning process.It is important that the project should be completed within the specified time and within the specified budget.
** DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF PROJECT THERE ARE TWO OTHER STAGES-

  1. COMMISIONING
  2. OWNER OCCUPANCY.


Now,You get the overall view on construction project management.
How this works?what are the main factor in construction management?
These all questions are cleared to you know.
But we left something major part in construction management.
YES! I AM TALKING ABOUT THE STAGES/STEPS OF CONSTRUCTION PROJECT-

STAGES IN CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT

1.Design of project- This is the basic and first step in construction project. No project can run successfully without having a proper Design process.In this step, client's demand or requirement of project gets a shape of reality.

Place of site,Types of construction,Size of construction-all of these questions are answered in this process by the engineer or architecture.

2.Pre-construction of construction-  Pre-construction process refers not only the selection of the contractor,engineer,field engineer but also site examination like soil test.

3.Procurement- In simple words,procurement stage is a stage where the amount of required material that will be used in the construction purpose is calculated and purchased.
Buying all the necessary item(including hiring of labours) regarding construction is the main motive of this stage.

4.Construction- After the four above stages,One final meeting with contractors and field engineer is held.If there is any area that need to be replace or improve then it should be done before starting of construction work.
In this stage the construction works begins.

5.Project closeout- This is the last stage of any construction project.After the completion of work,ITS TIME TO CONDUCT THE POST-PROJECT-PREVIEW.
If there is anything that wasn't accomplished yet,mark that item.
AND finally making a project completion report is the last sign of any construction project.
After that the property is handover to the client.



Summary

After knowing all the important parameter related to construction project management,you can have a clear view on this topic.
For smaller size industry this works super cool but In case of LARGER industry construction project management is very complex work.
A proper team is required to convert all of these theoretical plan into a reality.

I Hope i have given you an overview of construction management.
