Many people considering a construction project decide to hire a contractor to oversee the day-to-day operation of the construction. A general contractor typically doesn’t have any input in the design, but rather uses the architectural design plans to complete the building project. If the project is larger in scope, more skilled and knowledgeable professionals are required. If you are looking for a construction project manager to coordinate and control cost of the design in San Diego, the experts at Cullina Management Inc should be your first choice.
An architect is defined as one who plans, designs and reviews the building structure. Architects require specialized training comprised of both advanced education and an internship, before being licensed to practice the profession. There are practical, academic and technical requirements must be, but these may vary by jurisdiction. Whether the design of the architect is intended for residences, public buildings or other structures, the decision made by the architect affect public safety. However, Architects are a component of the project and don’t manage from inception of the budget through construction and move-in; a construction management firm such as Cullina Management does.
The actual construction of the project designed by the architect is a second major component of the work done by a firm such as Cullina Management. The construction project manager is responsible for ensuring that all the design and engineering components identified by the architect are carried out in the completed project. It may be necessary to make changes to the design due to any of a number of factors, including jurisdictional codes, product availability, client required changes or environmental factors.
When a single entity like a construction project manager handles all aspects of the project, there are likely to be cost and resource savings. Because one administrative unit is overseeing everything, the allocation of resources is most efficient and effective. Communication between elements of a single entity is often faster, because the lines of communication are clear. Suppliers, consultants and labor are ultimately answerable to a single authority.
In a large region such as San Diego, there may be multiple projects for a single client being worked on at the same time and the Construction Manager effectively “pulls” together resources within the region to be utilized in the most effective manner. Cullina management has a large resource base, so that there is less down time, or time spent waiting for another phase of a project to be completed.
There are multitudes of details from start to completion of a project. These include strategic planning, team selection, proposal solicitation, budget and schedule control, and quality control. Coordination and management of the design and consultations about sustainability, costs and strategic portfolio planning are elements to be built into the management plan. The firm’s professional construction management team are also well versed in completing a comprehensive “close-out” package when the project is completed; which includes budget vs. actual cost accounting, subcontractor lien waiver releases, completing “as built” documents and O&M binders for client’s future use.
The management team also can be responsible for environmental remediation consulting and management. The professional construction management team can assist in site selection for a project as well as performing an analysis to determine the construct-ability of the proposed structure in a particular location.
