When you’re embarking on your first construction project, it can be awfully tempting to do things on your own or scrimp on certain things with the notion that this will save you a lot of time and money. Take for instance construction management.
For any inexperienced property owner, it may seem like a job that can be given to anybody, or an additional task that can be given to someone within the existing construction team. But construction management is not just some add-on task; it is a series of tasks and a huge responsibility that should be given to the right professionals.
Who SHOULD’NT Manage Your Project
Many property owners simply hand over the responsibility to someone who is, more often than not, ill-qualified. Among the most common people that they mistakenly task with the responsibility of construction management include:
- Friends or Family Members
Unless your friend or family member is a professional and qualified construction supervisor with the required skills and credentials, it would be best to just let a professional building company handle your project.
Assigning the building management to the architect will only cause a conflict of interest, as the architect will have to manage himself in the preparation of the design documentation. Most architects also don’t have the expertise in interpreting building legislation, undertaking inspections, solving practical issues in a cost effective way and dealing with a certain kind of sub-contractors, which are tasks that need to be carried out and supervised by certified construction management team.
- Owner Builders
With all the duties you’ll have to take on as an owner builder, you’d be stretching yourself too thin if you take on the responsibility of managing the structural development yourself, especially if it is your first project.
