Just like any other industry, construction has its own stereotypes.
Go to any function or dinner party and you’ll hear people joke about how projects always go over budget, take too long to complete, are filled with challenges and headaches, and end up being all-around chaotic experiences.
Some of these stereotypes have, unfortunately, been earned, but it really doesn’t have to be like that… at all!
Construction management (CM) is a solution that provides a more comprehensive, controlled, and accountable experience for everyone involved.
Let’s dig a little deeper, shall we?
What is CM?
Construction management is when a single entity, such as Tractus, oversees an entire project from start to finish.
Having a CM means that there is real cohesion between all of the different parties involved: the owner, the contractor, and the architect/designer. The CM acts as a liaison and manager for these different parties. More than that, they bring a real sense of unity to the project by introducing and facilitating collaboration at every step, including planning, budgeting, coordinating, site supervision, and completion.
Imagine a building experience that has consistency and oversight.
How Does it Help?
Construction management is often seen in larger projects due to all the benefits it brings. Here’s a brief overview of these highly compelling advantages.
Having effective communication and alignment among all parties leads to fewer unexpected issues. Everyone involved will have taken part in the planning, which means execution comes with nowhere near as many “huh, I hadn’t thought about that” moments.
The CM brings the owner, contractor, and architect/designer together. Each involved party can help each other, pointing out potential issues throughout the project that may have been missed if they were siloed—everyone is on the same team here!
Budgets, quotes, and all the fun money stuff get discussed early and often. This, combined with the above mentioned promise of fewer unforeseen challenges, means there is much less financial risk and uncertainty as opposed to fixed-price projects.
