The horror stories of bad construction projects don’t have to happen to you! Many commercial businesses wait too long before starting needed renovations out of fear. They have all heard the horror stories.
Your project doesn’t have to be that way! One of the best things you can do to make it successful is to develop a strong construction management scope of services.
Read on to find out the keys to writing a scope of services and the other key factors for a successful project.
Understand Your Overall Purpose for the Job
Write out the purpose you are expanding or renovating and keep it in front of you. This will keep you motivated and help you focus on the big picture during the construction project.
Find Your Construction Manager
Whether you are building a brand new commercial building or renovating your current facility, construction management is hard! This is why many owners and companies are seeing the benefits of hiring construction managers.
Represent Owner’s Interests
Construction managers represent the owner’s interest at the construction site. They keep everything moving toward your goals. They take care of the small details and their experience helps everything go smoothly.
Write Out Your Construction Management Scope of Services
One of the best benefits of a construction manager is they can help you write out your scope of services. This acts as a communication playbook for your project. It is one of the most important parts of planning.
Your scope of services defines every team member’s responsibilities. It incorporates a scope of work and lets everyone know what is expected of them.
A well-crafted scope of services will show the chain of command and define how communication will happen. Who reports to the owner and how often do they report? Questions like this are answered clearly in the scope.
Your scope of services assigns authority for decision-making. This keeps people from bringing unnecessary decisions to the owner. It grants authority so people make decisions with confidence which helps the project keep moving.
Along with authority, the scope of services defines accountability. Who is responsible for which decisions are laid out clearly. This keeps unclear communication, misunderstandings, and delays from happening.
You can set up levels of success in your scope of services. This helps your team to know what success looks like at every stage. Your team will stay motivated and work to complete each level on time and within budget.
