What Makes a Good Construction Manager?

Characteristics of a Trustworthy Construction Manager

Here are the traits you’ll find in any trustworthy construction manager.

Behind every successful construction project is a competent construction manager. Without effective management, any construction project will be destined to fail before it even begins. For this reason, you have to be sure you pick a capable construction manager to stand behind your project to ensure its success. Here are the traits you’ll find in any trustworthy construction manager.

Good Communication Skills

Any competent manager has to know how to communicate with his/her clients. The client’s input is highly valued and should never be ignored. It’s up to the construction manager to communicate with the client and make sure the project goes as planned. They also need to notify others when problems arise or when potential dangers could delay the completion of the project. Effective communication means a project gets completed as quickly and efficiently as possible, and that the project is completed to the client’s satisfaction.

A Construction Manager Should Be an Effective Leader

A project manager has to assume the role of the leader of said project. They need to be capable of motivating their team, guiding them through the project, and motivating them to get everything done quickly and efficiently. When a project has a good leader behind it, workers maximize their productivity.

Choose a Construction Manager With Good Decision-Making Skills

There will be tough decisions that pop up in the midst of a construction project. Problems will need to be recognized and addressed swiftly so that they don’t impede the project’s progress. A competent manager will be able to make wise decisions on the spot whenever necessary, allowing the project to continue running smoothly.

Technical Expertise

Project management software is vital to the completion of many construction projects. This means the construction manager you choose needs to have expertise in using this software. Being adept with various management software tools will allow your construction manager to make effective strategic decisions to facilitate the completion of your project.

Sharing a Vision With Clients

Your construction manager should be able to relate to their clients. They will understand the vision you have for your project, and be able to adapt if you want to make changes to the project later on. They won’t question you on any requests you have for your project. Instead, they will respect your decision and do everything they can to turn your vision into a reality.
