Project Management and Construction

Pulse Points

  • Project management is not facility management (FM).
  • The facility manager must control, if not manage, all large capital projects for which FM will become responsible.
  • Life-cycle costing should be used for project decisions.
  • Partnering provides an opportunity to avoid litigation during major projects.
  • Both design–build and fast-tracking offer opportunities for cost savings but place greater pressure on the design team.
  • New contracting methods should be considered in light of their benefits to all stakeholders within a project.
  • Costs can be minimized by selecting the correct method of contracting and the correct construction process for major projects.
  • Prequalify design firms and builders.
