From cooking to traveling to choosing a career path, most things in life tend to go better when you’ve got a plan. The construction project management industry is no different. Thorough planning and thought-out communication of what that plan entails is a crucial ingredient to every part of the commercial construction process, from client relations to the actual manual labor.
Why is this? Well, understanding the role of planning in construction services requires that you understand a bit about the industry first. Miller Architects and Builders, a Saint Cloud construction management company, both provides the necessary context and explains the integral role of planning to industry success below.
Winging it is Unacceptable
So many people come together for the successful execution of a commercial construction project. Architects, construction managers, manual laborers—the list goes on and on. Without a plan or a proper visioning process, these people are left in the dark, with little ability to envision what the work should look like at any given stage, or what success looks like in terms of any given project. How is anyone to achieve success if nobody is on the same page with what success even looks like?
That’s why Miller Architects and Builders places a strong emphasis on the visioning and planning process. That, and a few other reasons:
● A visioning keeps everyone safe. Proper visioning is much more than painting a picture of the ideal finished project. It’s also looking at the project with a critical eye, identifying possible areas of difficulty, and planning ways to mediate them. This keeps workers safe while they work on the project and makes sure future building occupants will always feel safe inside.
● A visioning keeps the budget on track. Because possible problems have been assessed and every aspect of the project has been thoroughly examined, an accurate budget can be created during the visioning process. This enables everyone, from the client to the management firm they’re working with, to know what they’re getting into and to prevent any nasty surprises.
● A visioning enables good communication. When written down and concretely established, a proper plan ensures that all parties involved spend time communicating about worthwhile questions, and that important details don’t get lost. In fact, it’s almost impossible to communicate quickly and accurately in the construction management process without a concrete plan for guidance.
