- Contractor/Sub-contractor issue
- Quality issue
- Costing issue
- Materials issue, and
- Safety and security issue, etc.
To handle and organize all these issues we need a strong and balanced management team in a construction project. This team should have the following members.
Essential team members for construction project management –
- Project Manager,
- Project Engineer,
- Site Engineer/Supervisor,
- Store Officer, and
- Security Guards.
Project Manager: He is the leader of the team. He arranges and employs contractors/sub-contractors and prepare work orders. A project manager is also responsible to train-up and motivates his team members, Mitigate any internal, governmental and local disputes which can hamper the progress of a project.
Project Engineer: A project manager not only controls one project he also controls several other projects. But a project engineer controls only one project. He resolves internal issues, motivate and train-up team members and follow up them and reports project manager time to time and operate the project as directed by the project manager.
Site Engineer/Supervisor: Site engineer or supervisor guides contractors/sub-contractors, supervise the works, makes requisitions for required materials to smoothly operate the construction works and controls the quality of works. Site engineer also ensures the safety of the project.
Responsibilities of Construction Supervisor.
Store Officer: A Storekeeper controls store. He receives materials, maintains stock-registers and reports about materials stock to project engineer from time to time. It is a store officer’s responsibility to deliver the required materials to the project on due time. In some construction companies, he also handles the purchase related tasks.
Security Guard: Most important person of a construction project. A security guard should be honest and sincere. Because, when no one is in the project, it is guards responsibility to protect the project from any unwanted activities.
Actually, a security guard is not judged as a management team member. I included them in the project management team because most of the time they work as a helping hand of the project management team.
If the project is very big then several other members are included in the project management team. Such as, Deputy Project Engineer, Quality Engineer, Safety Engineer etc.
Do you have a member in your project management team which I’ve not included here? Please share in comments…
