More Than the Basics
A generalized stereotype of most construction contractors that comes to the forefront of an average individual’s mind might include a crew of burly workers wearing highly visible yellow or orange vests and hard hats. But an able-bodied, competent crew of construction workers is not the only service that Murphy Construction provides its clients.
CM specialists are needed to provide the oversight for the following tasks:
- Implementation of labor
- Milestone completion
- Crew management
Construction managers are responsible for controlling the project hours, cost and quality. While these particular managers may be found in an office setting, most often they can be reached at the actual job site. Construction managers are the important link between the crew and the project manager, who often speaks with the client. Client supervisors and point of contacts may also have contact with the construction manager depending on the contract specifics. Ultimately, Murphy Construction’s specialists and managers will provide communication as stipulated by the client’s contractual needs.
Getting Involved with the Construction Project
Clients interested in participating actively in construction projects in the High Desert area of Southern California can ask to walk a site with a construction manager at any time for updates and progress assessment. Any client interested in a site walk should always notify the company ahead of time in order to first find out if any personal protective equipment is needed before going onto the job site.
Things like hard hats, steel-toed work boots, gloves, and glasses are all possible items that need to be worn on active construction sites. If a client does not own these items, construction managers can secure extra items to lend when the client arrives on site. Because construction managers are responsible for tool inventories at the end of the project, the construction manager is the best point of contact for a protective item for use by the client.
