Site management

A definition of site manager and what you can expect when you hire me:

In a first step, a good construction manager checks whether the specifications can be implemented at all, whether the necessary preliminary clarifications have been carried out and whether the construction programme is realistic. He pays attention to a good cooperation with the planners and craftsmen, who should work towards the best possible result for the benefit of the client. The site manager and no one else is the boss during construction. Without his knowledge and consent, nothing may be changed, neither by the project manager, nor by the planners, nor by the craftsmen. A good site manager is on site when he is needed and not when it suits him best, because the procedures and deadlines are decisive. The craftsmen rely on the fact that they can ask him if something is unclear. The site manager maintains constant open communication with the client or the architect, and today this is often done by e-mail. This is always done in the knowledge that a building project, especially renovations and renewals, is a work that is being produced by hand for the first time in this form. No two buildings are the same. A good construction manager costs money. But he also saves money. A good construction manager expects the client to ensure that the financing is secured, that decisions are made on time and that the invoices are paid on time at the end. In return, the client receives what he had envisaged, on time and at the price he had envisaged.
