Construction Project Management Elements
This article is about Construction Project Management Elements. In a construction project management, usually we will find several element or roles that work together in order to finish the project well. Each element will try to do as good as it can to meet all Project Management Goals. You can read what are the Project Management Goals on the previous posts. This time, we will mention only the construction project management elements.
Construction Project Management Elements :
Cost engineering division will do all of the cost estimating, cost accounting, and cost-control activities related to a project, plus the development of cost databases. This is just like fuel in a car. You cannot play with this element.
Project planning and scheduling.
Project planning and scheduling is responsible for the development of initial project plans and schedules, roject monitoring and updating, and the development of as-built project schedules. This will let you know how far you have gone and how far you can go about the project.
Equipment planning and management.
Equipment planning and management determine the selection of needed equipment for projects, productivity planning to accomplish the project with the selected equipment in the required project schedule and estimate, and the management of the equipment fleet.
Design of temporary structures.
The design of temporary structures required for the construction of the project, such as concrete formwork, scaffolding, shoring, and bracing.
The management of the activities of the project to comply with contract provisions and document contract changes and to minimize contract disputes.
Human resource management.
The selection, training, and supervision of the personnel needed to complete the project work within schedule.
The establishment of safe working practices and conditions for the project, the communication of these safety requirements to all project personnel, the maintenance of safety records, and the enforcement of these requirements.
By knowing those Construction Project Management Elements, we hope that you can manage your project well. One of the most important things about successful project management is coordination. As long as the project management coordination goes well, everything will be just fine. We hope that this post about Construction Project Management Elements useful for you. Please read also “Civil Engineering Handbook 2nd Ed”. I got the idea of Construction Project Management Elements from that book.
