Construction includes site preparation, excavation, drilling, seismic investigation, the supply of products and materials, the supply of equipment and machinery if included in and incidental to the construction, and the installation and repair of fixtures of a building, structure, or other civil engineering or architectural work.
Nearly all building projects fall into one of three categories:
- Structures and homes
- Works of public utility
- Structures of an industrial nature
There are numerous subcategories within each of these types of buildings. Buildings, for example, comprise both residential and commercial skyscrapers. Construction projects can include both modifications to existing structures and new construction. Roads, railways, water and wastewater distribution and purification systems, dams, and bridges are examples of public works projects. Refineries, pipelines, electricity utilities, manufacturing plants, and telecommunication infrastructure are examples of industrial projects.

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT?
Construction Management (CM), also known as Construction Project Management (CPM), encompasses all operations involved in the planning, coordination, and control of construction projects from start to finish. It combines construction abilities with commercial ideas in an attempt to create projects that are highly successful while minimizing waste. Construction managers work with a diverse workforce to guarantee that each stage of the project is finished on time and within budget. Construction managers must be technically proficient, imaginative, entrepreneurial, community leaders, and persons who value social and global awareness.
CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT CAN BENEFIT YOUR PROJECT IN SIX WAYS
Your interests come first:
The Construction Manager acts as the Owner’s representative, making optimal judgments and taking actions that benefit the entire project.
Decreased total project cost: The Construction Manager is in charge of competitive bidding, contract negotiation on merit, reducing completion time, and eliminating non-value scope and expenses. They collaborate with the construction team to set realistic budgets and ensure that the project is completed within budget by adopting cost-cutting documentation controls, using resources efficiently, and more. Furthermore, having an experienced team lead your project provides various efficiency benefits in terms of budget monitoring and utilization, keeping the project on track, and organizing the team’s work in the most effective and efficient manner.
A competent project team:
A competent project team: The Construction Manager advises the client on maintaining those most suited to deliver on the client’s needs while removing those who are not contributing to the team’s success. A Construction Manager can also propose skilled industry specialists to join your team.

They are gathering information from various sources and filtering it to guarantee that the appropriate information reaches the right people at the right time, as well as ensuring the seamless integration of project participants.
Improved quality control:
