There’s a simple reason construction management exists as a discipline: because perhaps the most intimidating part of a home build is simply the scale of the task. Designers, decorators and countless contractors need to come together like a symphony; everyone has a part to play to keep the “music” that is your build from sounding like chaotic noise.

What to Look for in a Construction Manager
Whether you are working on remodeling an older home or trying to create the ultimate interior on a custom home you’re building, it’s a certainty that the construction project will face obstacles and uncertainties.
The best solution for controlling those setbacks? Hiring a construction manager— working with a good one is the easiest way to ensure that every phase of your project progresses smoothly.
But what goes into good construction management? The person you’re considering hiring should be able to…
Your construction manager acts as a liaison between you and all the contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, manufacturers and other people involved in the project. Don’t hire someone who can’t easily go back and forth between you.
Deal with obstacles
Construction management is about dealing with the inevitable problems that are likely to crop up, especially with the unpredictable nature of Colorado weather.
A good construction manager should be adept at figuring out ways to solve problems when setbacks do occur. For example, if materials are delayed, your construction manager needs to find a way around the setback. Or if weather causes a delay on outdoor work, a good construction manager will know how to shift gears and focus on indoor tasks.
Build and run a strong team
The success of any construction and building project depends on whether the workers can embrace the spirit of teamwork and to come together for a common goal.
Think of a construction manager as the glue that holds the project together during the building phase. Her job is to make sure that regardless of the complexity of the project, the work stays on course and is completed on time—and that everyone involved in the total job is committed to sticking to the budget.
