Construction management is the backbone of any real estate development project. And that’s why real estate development firms turn to civil engineering firms to handle project details in Colorado and across the country. Civil engineers use their expertise to manage risks and control project costs. They’re dedicated to delivering a project that aligns with the proposed architectural design and exceeds client expectations.
Construction management begins even before the first dirt is turned over on a site. Based on project specs from the real estate development firm, a civil engineering firm handles scheduling, the design team selection, and document coordination. Having all of these foundational pieces of the project in place ensures a smooth, collaborative process going forward.
The Heart of Construction Management
Once a project gets underway, the real construction phase begins. Activities like obtaining building permits and contracting with construction firms can be time-consuming. Rely on your civil engineering team to navigate the sometimes conflicting and confusing permitting processes to ensure approvals and any necessary variances are granted promptly so as not to delay the project. A construction manager can also function as the primary point of contact for construction issues, monitoring progress and resolving common issues as they come up. As the project nears completion, the construction management role includes tying up all the loose ends, like coordinating any required inspections and inspection reports so that the project can be signed off on and considered complete.
