When you visit a commercial construction site, you expect to see a lot of people working together to complete the project to the client’s specifications. From site supervisors and engineers to carpenters and electricians, everyone contributes their own unique set of skills to fulfill the project goals. If one member of the team fails to complete their task, the entire project comes to a standstill.
The same can be said for project management. While there may be one person at the head of the show, projects cannot be completed in a timely manner without every member of the team pulling together. Here are some reasons why project management is not a one-man show and how an efficient project management team is the key to a successful construction project.
Project managers cannot be in multiple places at once.
Effective project management is all about gathering information, staying on top of what needs to be done, and passing along critical information to the right parties. If a single person was responsible for being present at every site to mitigate issues, tracking down supervisors for status updates, and making sure that everyone is doing what they are supposed to be doing, then many things would fall by the wayside and a lot of people would be standing around waiting for direction.
But when a project manager works with an efficient and dependable team where everyone provides input into what’s happening on the job site, what things may affect the schedule, and what issues need immediate action, then they can focus their time on what’s best for the project as a whole and not micromanaging every department.
Project managers do not have time to inspect every aspect of construction.
Successful project managers know how to apply best practices and use the right tools and techniques to ensure a professional quality construction project. However, they do not have the time to go over every board, stone, or shingle to make sure that everyone upheld the company standards. That’s where the commercial contracting team comes in. Each member of the team supplies real-time updates on the project. An exceptional team, like the one at George Rullo and Associates, really pays attention to the accuracy of information provided and the quality of work completed, voicing any concerns that may delay the project at the earliest possible opportunity so the project manager has time to resolve the issue.
Collaboration always produces the best results.
Two (or more) heads are always better than one, especially when each member of the team is an expert in their field.
