Construction management is the use of specialized tools and techniques to monitor the progress of a construction project. Construction management happens right from the stages of pre-construction planning and design to the end of construction. It makes it possible to observe and control the length of time it takes to complete a project, the costs, and the quality. A construction manager is in charge of the process. They manage construction workers to ensure that they are working to deliver the right quality project in a safe, cost-efficient way.
