What Qualities Should You Look for in a Construction Manager?

Your best construction manager will have leadership, communication, and technical skills.

A skilled construction manager is the backbone of every successful construction project, whether you are a large business or just working on one project at a time. Because the manager that you choose can make or break your project, it’s critical to think carefully about what qualities you should look for in your construction manager. Here are some of the things that you should always consider.

Leadership Skills

The construction manager for your project will be in charge of leading others, so it’s only natural that they should have good leadership skills. Are they able to motivate and rally the workers that will be completing different phases of the project? How do they lead? Do they have experience working with large teams, or have they only led a few people before? When a great leader is in charge, your employees will be excited to get the job done and not drag their feet.

Construction Manager Communication Skills

Communication is essential throughout every stage of a successful construction project. If you are unable to hear about potential delays or accelerated progress in a timely fashion, it means that you will not be able to respond appropriately. A skilled construction manager will prioritize communication with you when it is both good news and bad news. By having good communication and open dialogue, you will also ensure that your project will likely finish on time.

Technical Skills

Beyond things like leadership and communication, your construction manager should also have practical and technical skills. They should be able to operate the various pieces of software that you use to communicate with your team and complete various aspects of the planning process. Additionally, they should have construction skills so that they are able to adequately understand the scope of the project and talk about different aspects of the project with accuracy and clarity. When you choose someone inexperienced, it can increase frustration for both them and your employees.
