Project Management for New Construction
Project management is the process of overseeing and guiding a construction project. The phases of project management include:
- Initiation and conception: When you approach us with your request, we determine if our skills and expertise are the right fit for your project.
- Pre-construction: We organize the project by creating a schedule, assigning team roles, assessing the job site, and assembling key materials.
- Project launch and execution: We begin transforming the design team’s blueprints into reality.
- Project supervision: We track the project’s performance as it proceeds. Some key performance indicators include planned time vs. time spent, budgeted cost vs. actual cost, and the number of schedule adjustments.
- Wrap up and presentation: When construction is complete, we present the finished product for you to enjoy for years to come.
The Golden Process
Our process starts with an on-site meeting with a designer to understand your goals, expectations, needs, and wants. From there, we’ll develop a design, select materials, and prepare a detailed budget.
After the initial design, you’ll have time to review and consider all aspects of the project and refine it until you’ve signed off on the final designs and decisions.
Once all the logistics are in place, we’re ready to get to begin construction. We will keep you informed throughout the build, and we aren’t done until the final walk-through ensures you’re thrilled with the results.

Frequently Asked Questions About Project Management
Why is project management necessary for new construction?
Without a project manager, you run a far greater risk of losing time, going over budget, and running into legal complications. Project management also creates clear lines of accountability, eliminating any confusion about who the decision-makers are and what objectives the project hopes to complete.
Who should hire a project manager?
It makes sense to hire a project manager if you have a building design planned out and a general contractor lined up, but you don’t have the time or expertise to supervise the construction yourself. A good project manager serves as your eyes and ears on the job site, even as you go about your normal routine.
How does a project manager keep a project on schedule and on budget?
Project management is a highly skilled career path. People who become project managers must have the proper technical knowledge and meticulous attention to detail to successfully coordinate all the moving parts of a construction project.
What are some obstacles that project managers face?
The four most common obstacles of residential construction projects include:
- Poor budget planning
- OSHA violations
- Lack of communication
- Undefined milestones
Determining the likelihood of these obstacles and the necessary steps to resolve them—also known as risk management—is the key to reducing time and monetary losses if they occur.
