Why Hire a Project Manager

March 25, 2015

It all comes down to expertise, focus and time

There’s no question about it, construction projects are risky, costly and time-consuming. And the more complex a project is, the more potential there is for issues to arise, including scope creep, budget overruns and schedule delays.

Unless, of course, you have a good Project Manager (PM) at the helm.

A good PM will lead and help integrate all elements of a building project—from planning to design and engineering to construction and commissioning—for maximum overall results. They serve as the owner’s trusted advisor and single source of responsibility and accountability for project performance throughout the entire process, so you don’t have to.

But corporate real estate (CRE) executives sometimes ponder whether the benefits of hiring a PM justify the expense. The answer is a resounding “yes.” By ensuring everyone is in the right place, at the right time, doing the right things, a good PM will help you avoid redundancies, rework and costly mistakes.
