Understanding Residential Construction Management
What Does a Residential Construction Project Manager Do?In a nutshell… everything. You will not be removed entirely from the construction process, but your interaction should be minimal after the initial meetings. As project manager, our job is to literally make your vision come to life. This initial “consultation” period is key, as you communicate your vision to the project manager. It is then our job to work out the feasibility of turning those dreams into reality with the budget or to propose alternatives so that you can remain within your budget through the completion of the project. From that point forward, it is our job to negotiate costs, budgeting, hiring, scheduling, and make day-to-day decisions on the home’s construction. Communication will be essential with the homeowners from that point forward. As we noted above, you will not have to be involved in every decision, but you will still want to be informed about progress as well as apprised of any challenges that arise (and there are always challenges).

Do I Need to Hire a Residential Construction Project Manager?
Only one question needs to be answered to make this decision: do you have the time for another full-time job? Organizing and keeping all the work on schedule is a demanding, stressful, full-time job. There will likely be close to a dozen different companies and/or contractors working on the project’s construction, and all their schedules will have to be timed perfectly.
You should also consider just how much construction knowledge you have when deciding if you want to take on this project on your own. The project manager faces dozens of real-time questions every day that could impact other aspects of the construction. A wrong calculation or decision and the entire project can be derailed.
