Construction site management involves managing construction projects, such as buildings, bridges, roads or industrial facilities.
Construction managers must oversee a variety of resources, including labor, equipment, materials and capital. They are responsible for budgets, hiring, contracts, schedules, and safety compliance.
They must also deal with numerous governmental regulations, as well as interfacing/coordinating with other professionals connected to the project such as workers, contractors, architects, subcontractors, developers, engineers and more.
