Construction management is a system of interrelated processes and tools that ensure the successful implementation of an investment and construction project through the use of management and control tools at all stages of its life cycle

Stages of construction management

1. Pre-design study

At this stage, specialists need to make important calculations and carry out a number of activities, among which can be listed:
  • completing documentation on engineering surveys
  • compiling a list of necessary structures and equipment to create an object
  • obtaining the conditions for joining the networks
  • drafting a petition of intent
  • obtaining an urban development plan

As a result of all the work, the Justification of investments in construction and a set of required permits should be placed on the table of responsible managers

2. Design

In the course of a fruitful workflow, creative teams must develop a set of documents that may include:
  • sketches and a preliminary draft for a preliminary discussion of proposed solutions
  • various design documentation used to obtain a construction permit
  • a working draft with the necessary diagrams and drawings to perform the entire complex of construction and installation works
The complexity of the planned facility directly affects the timing of design work and the difficulty of obtaining all permits and approval documents

3. Construction of the facility

The entire complexity of the complex of works is shared with the general contractor. He is responsible for organizing interaction with all subcontractors involved in the work on this project. There are three main types of capital construction projects:
  • buildings
  • structures
  • facilities

Depending on the complexity and scale of the facility, as well as the nature of the work (construction or renovation of an existing building), the timing of the work may vary significantly.

4. Commissioning of the facility

The ultimate goal of construction, as always, is to deliver the object to the customer and obtain Permission to enter the object. Lawyers need to collect and submit all design and permits:
  • title documents
  • technical plan
  • construction permit
  • land plot scheme
  • acts confirming the conformity of the object with the project documentation
  • acceptance
  • certificate conclusion of the Gosstroynadzor bodies

At the end of this stage, you can cut a festive ribbon and congratulate all those involved in the construction

Clear representations of goals are the key to successful project implementation

In many cases, due to organizational difficulties or the specifics of construction projects, Developers are unable to clearly formulate goals and monitor their implementation.

In order to implement the project in accordance with the established deadlines and allocated budget, as well as for high-quality performance of work, it is strongly recommended to constantly compare planned goals with the actual state, take into account mandatory work, as well as identify options for action and prepare necessary solutions.

The combination of these tasks facing the Developer and subject to delegation is a classic project management

The main goal of any investment and construction project is its successful implementation within the time and cost set by the Developer, while observing the necessary construction quality indicators.

During the project, the execution and control of the tasks facing the Developer and subject to delegation is assumed by the project manager of the Times Office. The organizational structure of the project, developed for each individual project, carefully thought–out project deadlines, as well as operational project management, cost control while quality control are the main provisions of project management Office Times.

Construction management tasks

Document management

Timely receipt of the entire list of permits, passing examinations, conclusion of contracts and contracts for the supply of equipment and materials

Scheduling deadlines

All stages of the life cycle of the construction of the facility must be optimally planned. Following a developed and approved schedule will help to avoid downtime by contractors during design and construction and installation work. Meeting deadlines minimizes costs and ensures the fulfillment of contractual obligations by all parties to the construction process

Cost control

Any investor is extremely interested in spending the money they invest with maximum efficiency. Unforeseen expenses may arise at any stage of the process, but minimizing them and trying to avoid them is one of the key tasks of the organization responsible for managing the construction process

Quality control

Quality in construction has always been a key point of contractual relations. Only specialists know how, when and what to check at all stages, starting from obtaining a permit document, to designing, purchasing crushed stone and performing installation work

Goal control

From time to time, a specialist's gaze is drawn to the results achieved. Is there any deviation from the planned points of the task? To what extent are the contractors' activities moving in a given direction? Nothing should escape the attention of an interested specialist

Organization of the acceptance of the object

The completion of the construction process, the signing of acceptance documents will always be one of the most important moments of the construction process. The responsibility of some should fall on the shoulders of others. There should be no mistake!
Coordination of all processes
The task is to coordinate the different approaches, expectations and representations of the parties involved in the design and construction in order to implement the plans of the developer regarding the purpose of the project. If the ideas about the purpose of the project are unknown, then at the beginning of work on the project it is necessary to define and formulate them together with the developer.

The Office Times company ensures the effectiveness of the processes of project development, obtaining the necessary initial permits, accreditation and selection of design contractors, passing expertise and correcting comments, concluding contracts, as well as contracts for the supply of equipment and materials, ensuring the synchronicity of suppliers and contractors, managing deadlines, risks and budget - the minimum list of tasks that It is necessary to solve in the process of implementing almost any project.

The cost of services

The cost of services is individual and depends on the following main factors:

  • the degree of responsibility of the project manager (the scope of organizational, managerial and control functions);
  • the stage of the project and the actual situation of the object's implementation (pre-design, design, construction);
  • scope and duration of the project
