Construction + Community

The practice of construction project management and the profession of the community management have both been evolving for over three decades.  Likewise, many advances have been made in construction practices and in the creation of new and better materials.  Working together, these developments offer great opportunities to provide better solutions to a community’s needs.  And like the improvements in products over the years, project management has grown to be an important component to any successful construction project.

A professional project management team employs value engineering, construction strategies and expediting as part of their procedures to analyze, design, plan and budget the resolution of the community’s issues.  The construction manager’s typical duties include proposal preparation, contractor prequalification, and oversight of bidding, contract award and cost control.
