Excellent project management services 2021? Being able to effectively communicate is probably the most important skill a construction project manager needs to learn. A good construction project manager should be adept at both written and oral communication. All communication should be clear and concise. Sometimes a quick email or text is all that’s needed to convey your message while other instances may require you to pick up the phone or schedule a quick face-to-face meeting. Establish a communication plan to determine what type of communications should be used for different circumstances and a chain of command for what information gets shared and who that information is shared with. For example, items like RFIs and change orders should always be done through some form of written communication to establish a paper trail. When meeting with stakeholders and members of the project team it’s a good idea to take notes, and follow up with an email to ensure everyone is on the same page.
How do project managers spend their time? Many in the workforce agree that email occupies a significant amount of time spent during the workday. This article from Huffington Post found that workers spend 3.2 hours on average on work emails per day. The construction project managers we interviewed fell in line with this finding. Of the 17 project managers who responded to the question “How many hours per day do you spend on emails to and from your team?”, the average response was 3.02 hours. The median response was 3 hours flat. Talking numbers, this adds up to an average of 72 emails per day, with a median of 50. So, if you find yourself spending significantly more than three hours clearing out your inbox on a daily basis, you may want to explore methods to cut back on the number of emails you’re sending to your team.
We often get called in by new clients who have employed a consultant to support them to resolve a particular issue, only to find that the consultant prepares an extensive report on the problem without supporting the client with defining an effective solution. Given our multi-disciplined engineering and project delivery skills we are ideally placed to develop these third party consultancy reports into practical and deliverable engineering solutions…better still though, just employ PM PROjEN from the start and we can take you through all phases of the required work.

The Principal Designer will usually be an organisation or, on smaller projects, an individual with: Technical knowledge of the construction industry, relevant to the project; Understanding of how health and safety is managed through the design process; Skills to be able to oversee health and safety during the pre-construction phase of the project ans the ongoing design. The Principal Designer needs to have good relationships with the Client and Principal Contractor and it is also essential for them to establish good relationships with other designers working on the project. This is the arrangement for the majority of projects. The Client is not required to appoint a Principal Designer or Principal Contractor if there is only one contractor engaged on the project.
