Commercial Construction Management 101

Not all spaces are ready-made for tenants. In fact, once a property has been purchased or rented, it’s expected that owners and tenants will work together to create a space that serves the best interest of each party. Sometimes, the desired changes will be small. In other cases, the renovation of a space for a new client requires a lot more — including the oversight of construction management services.

Any kind of construction project can be stressful but, when the success and happiness of your organization relies on your space’s productivity, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with the responsibilities ahead of you. Whether you’re a building owner or a property manager, construction resource management can be an invaluable service in this journey.

But what exactly is project management and construction? And how do you find the right services for your renovation needs and goals?

The answer is simple: By working with CTG Real Estate Services.

What is Construction Management in Real Estate?

Renovation of commercial spaces is impossible without construction program management. But, if you’re new to the real estate world, you may be confused at exactly what this term means.

Like many terms in the real estate industry, construction management often means different things to different professionals. In fact, there are actually several different terms for this kind of service. As you research your renovation options, you may come across phrases such as:

  • Construction project management
  • Construction resource management
  • Construction management or project management
  • Construction and project management
  • Construction planning and management
  • Construction project development

We know this can be confusing. But, when professionals use any of these terms, they are often referring to the same thing: the act of overseeing a construction or renovation project from start to finish.

What Does Construction Management Include?

There are a lot of aspects that go into successful project management and construction. Every construction manager may offer different services, but there a few general standards you can expect from any management and construction service.

Construction program management uses specialized, project management techniques to manage the planning, design, and construction of a project from beginning (pre-design) to end (closeout). This management is crucial in controlling a project’s time, cost, safety record and quality. Often, project planning in the construction industry involves several different kinds of professionals, who all work together to meet the client’s goals and expectations for their renovation project.

A construction manager oversees all of these responsibilities. They make sure every party is working to deliver the project on time, at or under budget, and to the expected standard of quality. In a way, a construction manager is a tour-de-force professional who keeps all others on track.

Whatever your goals and expectations may be, construction project management and all its included services are crucial to your renovation project’s success.
