Fast and reliable engineering design 2021? Being able to effectively communicate is probably the most important skill a construction project manager needs to learn. A good construction project manager should be adept at both written and oral communication. All communication should be clear and concise. Sometimes a quick email or text is all that’s needed to convey your message while other instances may require you to pick up the phone or schedule a quick face-to-face meeting. Establish a communication plan to determine what type of communications should be used for different circumstances and a chain of command for what information gets shared and who that information is shared with. For example, items like RFIs and change orders should always be done through some form of written communication to establish a paper trail. When meeting with stakeholders and members of the project team it’s a good idea to take notes, and follow up with an email to ensure everyone is on the same page.
Managing construction projects is no small feat. With 1000s of action items to handle, timelines to be met and projects to be delivered, the question many project managers face is, “is my team working as effectively as possible?” In efforts to help you answer that question, we asked over 30 experienced project managers in the construction industry about how they spend their time on the job, their best advice for managing their team, and how they know when their team is performing to its full potential.
Clearly as a full Project lifecycle design and delivery organisation we need to have all of the skills that you would expect from a pure Engineering Consultancy. However, consultancy businesses do not typically have the full design and delivery capability that a business like PM PROjEN possesses. Why is this an important factor when choosing an Engineering Consultancy to support you? We believe that when you design and implement engineering solutions that it enhances the understanding of any engineering challenges and this learning helps us to take a highly practical and pragmatic approach to engineering consultancy tasks.

The CDM Regulations have made a significant impact on the construction industry as injury rates have continued to fall over the last 20 years. However, construction still remains a high risk industry and although it accounts for only 5% of the employees in Britain, it accounted for 31% of fatal injuries to employees and 10% of reported major/specified injuries (Health and Safety Statistics). Clearly we must continue to do more in this industry to eliminate and manage the risks such that we protect the lives of those working in the industry and those impacted by construction activities.
