6 Tips for Optimal Project Management

Optimal project management begins before you ever break ground on a commercial construction project. It takes detailed preplanning during the early stages and strong organization during the actual job.

Careful management helps ensure every aspect of the project is managed well. This is how our project management team ensures that the project is a success.

Here are our six tips for optimal project management:

Define the Project’Scope of Work First 

A clearly defined scope of work is the starting point for effective project management. Describe all requirements, list key project documents, and outline essential project elements — including scope of work, site conditions, schedule, budget, material and equipment proposals, prefabrication, subcontractors, equipment, tools, labor, and more.

During the preconstruction process, all of the project objectives should be clearly outlined. It’s also important to map out the project’s team and each person’s role and responsibilities.

Schedule Out Your Plan

Organized and comprehensive planning is critical to the success of any commercial construction project. Planning and brainstorming sessions with all parties paint a clear picture of the project and its deliverables, as well as a plan for achieving them.

Sort Out Details Early 

Carefully look over all of the specs before the project officially begins, and make sure everything that should be included is included both in the estimates and the scope of work.

Stay on Schedule 

It sounds obvious, but staying on schedule is an essential part of optimal project management. No one wants to get off schedule, but setbacks can occur. Planning for the likelihood of a setback and being vigilant about staying on schedule helps keep things running smoothly. Not staying on schedule can increase labor costs and snowball into many other issues.

Keep Track of Numbers 

Everything in the preconstruction process can affect the bottom line. Effectively monitoring workflows through easily identifies inefficiencies. Tracking everything helps keep costs down and deadlines in check.

Organize the Team 

An optimal project management strategy includes streamlined team coordination and open lines of communication with everyone involved. This ensures that all project goals and deliverables are met within the specified timeframe.
