Construction Management

History Of Construction Management
Achievement of profession
Construction management is the overall planning and control of a project from beginning to completion. The construction industry is composed of five sectors: residential, commercial, heavy civil, industrial, and environmental. This may include different types of equipment, materials, subcontractors, and possibly locations. A contractor is assigned to a construction project once the design has been completed by the architect or is still in progress. This is done by going through a bidding process with different contractors. The contractor is selected by using one of the three selection methods: low-bid selection, best-value selection, or qualifications-based selection. A construction manager should have the ability to handle public safety, time management, decision making, mathematics, and human resources.
