Construction management is a professional service that provides a project’s owner(s) with effective management of the project’s schedule, cost, quality, safety, scope, and function. No matter the setting, a Construction Manager’s (CMs) responsibility is to the owner and to a successful project.
A general contractor, or GC, in a construction project is the party responsible for scheduling and overseeing the day-to-day activities of a construction project. General contractors are hired to manage the project from groundbreaking to its completion, providing the materials, labor, and equipment.
