Why Project Managers are the Difference Between Staying on Budget and Cost Overruns

If there’s one thing most project owners have right up at the top of their build wish list, it’s completing the job on time and on budget. Of course, in any commercial construction project, numerous items are being juggled at once, but one of the best ways to keep all those balls in the air and the project moving ahead as scheduled is to make sure you have an experienced project manager helping guide the build.

At Seacoast Construction, we have an experienced team of project managers who have carried projects of all sizes through to the finish line on time and on budget. Here’s why we see the role of a project manager as absolutely essential to any commercial construction build.

The great communicator

Project managers excel at moving the project and decisions forward because they maintain close contact with each and every stakeholder on the job. This often includes weekly updates and much more frequent communication when necessary. Moreover, they’re also well connected within the community and have strong partnerships with vendors and subcontractors.

Education and experience

Project managers understand the construction timeline, flow, and overall project expectations because they’ve studied it and experienced it numerous times before. Important to this is their ability to anticipate potential hurdles and seamlessly navigate their way through any unexpected challenges.

Permitting and inspection requirements

For those new to commercial construction, they can be surprised at the kind of delay securing a permit that throw into their schedule, but experienced project managers are closely in tune with how each county and municipality in South Florida operates and knows just how much time to factor in to securing the appropriate permits and approvals.

Skilled project managers are invaluable to any commercial construction project. Without them, a build can very quickly experience setbacks in terms of budget and timeline. Keep your project on track with the experienced team at Seacoast Construction. Schedule a consultation to get started.
