Site Management

Site management means overseeing the building project in construction contracts and can be the responsibility of the construction company, the contractor, the local authorities or the civil engineering firm. There are a number of aspects to site management as it has technical, business and managerial elements. Site management starts from the initial preparation of the site, enclosing the site in barriers and installing temporary offices. It entails the construction costs estimates and budgeting for all aspects of the project. Then, all phases of the construction work must be coordinated and scheduled. Such work means there should be close communication between contractors, workers, architects, engineers and subcontractors like plumbers or electricians. If there are any delays or problems, these should be dealt with immediately. Site managers are also responsible for quality control of materials being delivered and inspection of completed work. Health and safety checks as well as labour relations are also a part of site management to ensure the smooth running of the site. In construction, well-run site management means that a project can be completed safely and within the estimated timescale and budget. On smaller building projects such as a home, this work can be coordinated by the architect and/or the contractor.

    Traffic management is a matter of concern for all construction workers and site managers.

Such measures can reduce the number of accidents on site.
