The 5 Phases of our Construction Project Management

The construction process is the detailed steps required to complete your construction project. This process can be broken down into five phases – planning/design, pre-construction, procurement, construction, and post-construction. Depending on the size and scope of the project, each phase has its own set of challenges. While construction projects may vary in size, the number of stakeholders, budget, and delivery date, one thing remains certain: Construction projects are always a long and demanding process with lots of moving parts.

1. The Initiation Phase

The initiation phase is one of the most important aspects of construction project management. It encompasses all of the steps you must take before a project is approved and any planning begins.

2. The Pre-Construction Phase
When the bidding is completed and the contractor has been chosen to do the work, the next stage of a construction project begins. Before they ‘break ground,’ as the industry saying goes, the project team is put together. Most commonly, the following team members are included:
• Contract Administrator
• Project Manager
• Superintendent
• Field Engineer
• Health and Safety Manager
At this stage, a project team prepares the construction site before the work begins. The site must be ready for construction, which might mean dealing with environmental issues, such as soil testing. When the site examination is complete, all plans and findings will be reviewed by the city authorities.

3. The Procurement Phase
During this phase, the project team orders, purchases, or rents all the materials, tools, and services necessary to complete the project. This stage of the construction project can be more or less challenging depending on the scope of the project, the resources availability, and the start date.

4. The Construction Phase
This is the project execution phase where all the planning will pay off. Before any construction begins, the project manager, design, and engineering teams have already put a lot of effort to make a project successful. During the construction phase, the center stage belongs to the contractor and subcontractors. As the hub of communications for the project, the construction manager and contractor will transition the project into actual construction. The architect, engineers, and project manager perform quality control inspections, respond to Requests for Information (RFIs), and review and approve technical submittals. The priority is to ensure that the project is delivered by the contractor as designed.

5. The Post-Construction/ Closeout Phase
The project closure phase of the project is the last step in the long process of designing and completing a construction project. Now that all the work on the job site has been completed, the project will come to a close. Project close-out involves more than just completion of the punch list. The resources required for the project are demobilized, equipment rentals are returned, the worksite is cleaned up, and subcontractors that have completed their jobs move onto other projects.
