Project Manager

Oversees construction initiatives and ensures that they meet client expectations

A project manager, often viewed as the “quarterback” of the project, is responsible for overseeing initiatives of a project and ensuring that they meet the expectations of the clients. Although a Project Manager doesn’t need to perform the hands-on tasks involved in a project, he or she must possess some degree of knowledge with regards to the various aspects of a project and make sure everyone in the field has up-to-date and accurate information to perform their work. The PM maintains close contact with clients and monitors construction and financial activities to ensure proper project completion.

  • Ability to successfully lead, manage, and encourage a project team
