Project management and project managers

Read time: 3 minutes

A project manager undertakes much of the client's role in a building project. The project manager may prepare the project brief, select and sign agreements with the design consultants, manage the design and documentation process, arrange approvals, invite tenders, recommend tenderers and manage construction and handover of the project. In addition, the project manager may also be involved in the feasibility stage of the project – project financing, taxation-benefit analysis, marketing and leasing and assisting the client during the occupation phase.
