Since 1990, JSC has demonstrated a proven track record in managing numerous construction projects. Our responsibility and goal is to direct and coordinate human and material resources throughout the life of a construction project by using modern management techniques to achieve predetermined objectives of scope, cost, time, quality, and participation satisfaction.
Every project is unique in size and scope. They range from managing tenant improvement projects to the construction of new buildings. There are several steps in the construction management process that apply to every project.
- Project Elements Identification: Before the project begins, it is important to identify the elements that need coordinating throughout the project. These elements will be the basis of establishing a construction schedule and identifying the critical path.
- Scope Review: This is an important step to ensure that the project and work required do not deviate from the design specifications and ultimately increase the cost of the project.
- Time Management: Frequent review of the schedule is essential to meeting the completion deadline and budget.
- Cost Control: Construction projects can often have “runaway” costs. The material and architectural detail specifications will vary from project to project. The construction manager has an important role of coordinating the decision-making process during construction. Managing the procurement of labor and material has a direct effect on meeting the budget.
- Quality Control: Monitoring the materials and design criteria during the construction phase is paramount to the successful completion of any construction project.
- Human Resource Management: The steps to complete every project vary. Coordinating the different people skills required is important to maintaining the efficiency and schedule of the project.
- Communication: This is probably the most important responsibility of the construction manager. From the beginning to the end of the project, effective communication prevents costly delays and conflicts among the various participants, and creates appreciation and satisfaction of a “job well done.
- Risk Management: Construction projects are sometimes considered to be dangerous environments. The construction manager is responsible for ensuring that safety procedures are followed during the construction phase.
