When you have a huge construction project to complete with your building, you want to know that the person you hire is qualified. With as many options as there are, finding the right person for the job can be a challenge. If you’re finding that you’re more overwhelmed than confident with the process, today’s blog is for you. The team at Building Enclosure Specialists is dedicating today’s blog to helping you find the perfect project manager. Keep reading for a few of the qualities that you’ll find in a great project manager.
There’s no doubt about it, when you’re hiring someone to manage a huge construction project, you want to know that they’re going to communicate with you. From the progress that’s being made to the issues that they come across, it’s the project manager’s job to keep you up to speed. The last thing that you want is for a curveball to be thrown at you midway through the project.
The good thing about communication is that you can get a pretty good taste of how strong someone’s communication skills will be almost immediately. Based on how quickly the project manager responds to your requests, gets back to you with phone calls, and the like, you can determine if this is a project manager that is going to offer the communication that you need.
Aside from finding a project manager that has strong communication skills with their clients, you want to ensure the individual you’re considering working with is also going to keep channels with support teams strong. Ask any potential PMs what their communication system looks like and determine if it’s something you feel confident in.
There are so many moving parts that come with a large construction project, it only makes sense that the person you hire is able to keep everything organized. Be it the materials needed to create an efficient roof or the project completion date that you need to stick to, your project manager should be able to complete the project with as little accidents as possible. One of the only ways to eliminate accidents is by ensuring the project (and all of the components associated with it) are as organized as could be.
The chances of a construction project going without a hitch is pretty unlikely, which is why it never hurts to hire a project manager that has gained some experience over the years. Experience and knowledge are two of the most valuable tools that a project manager can have, and it will show in the end results of the construction project. Aside from that, experience and knowledge can help make hurdles throughout the process all the easier to overcome. So, as you go through the various project managers that are interested in taking your project, take some time to look into their backgrounds and the experience that they’ve got underneath their belt.
Construction projects take some time, there’s no doubt about that. Even so, when you hire a project manager with a go-getter attitude, you can feel a little bit more confident in the fact that work is getting done in a timely manner. Along with that, go-getter project managers are the ones that are more likely to bring creative and out-of-the-box ideas to you. When you’re looking for something unique that is done well, look for a project manager whose personality and enthusiasm confirm they’re going to get it done.
Problem Solving Skills
We touched on the ability to solve problems a little earlier in the blog, but it’s such an important attribute to have that we absolutely need to talk about it again. Construction in general is something that will inevitably have problems. When it comes to parts of a building like the building’s envelope, the likelihood of having to work through problems a couple of times is something that you can count on. That is why having a project manager that embodies the mentality of a problem solver is always a win. In most cases, this mentality will keep them from getting frustrated with the process and ensure they have an open mind throughout the construction process.
