You save as much money as possible until the property has been completely erected.

The Role Of A Project Manager

Like in any other project, a self build project manager is someone who oversees the different aspects of the endeavour — ensuring that the construction is being accomplished within the conditions (budget, time, preferences) set by the client.

For a manager to be effective, he or she needs to have strong troubleshooting skills and good foresight — he or she anticipates and is proactive when it comes to orchestrating the different aspects of construction. A manager should also be a good communicator while observing diplomacy in his or her transactions and discussions with the different stakeholders and suppliers involved.

And to help them optimally do their job, they need to have project management tools that allow them to oversee the different construction departments — including how the budget allocations for each one are being utilised.

They pay attention to labour productivity. Inefficiencies in the construction site mean portion of the money you’re using for the project goes down the drain. However, there is a difference between working productively and working overtime. Your project manager can help you achieve your phase-by-phase construction goals by optimising the performance of the workforce.

They help you choose resources-saving products. In connection to the bulletin above, your manager can enhance productivity by helping you choose construction products and methods that are time, energy, and money-saving.

They thoroughly oversee health and safety on site. While the quality of the final output is of utmost importance, safety is still a top priority among project managers.
