1. Cost Savings on Your Construction Project

While you will be paying a fee to a construction manager, it will be well worth the investment as it will more than pay for itself in overall project savings. A construction manager will coordinate with subcontractors and make sure any extras on the project and associated fees are billed at a fair price. Too often customers are unknowingly paying higher profit percentages on extras. A construction manager knows to watch out for these things and will be looking out for your best interest throughout the project.

2. Added Construction Knowledge and Value

Managing your own construction project without knowledge of different trades and how the project should progress overall is a risky move. Construction managers keep things on track and make sure subcontractors stick to the schedule. A CM will also be able to make suggestions about the scope to ensure that your project will have the best outcome possible.

3. Stick to the Schedule

It’s easy for a construction schedule to get off track quickly when it’s not being monitored. One delay can have a domino effect and before you know it deadlines are out the window. A construction manager will monitor the schedule closely and make adjustments if needed. They will be in constant contact with subcontractors to make sure they are on site when they are scheduled to be. If a delivery is late causing a disruption to the schedule they will coordinate all trades to make schedule adjustments and keep things moving forward.
