Construction managers plan, coordinate, budget, and supervise construction projects from start to finish. M-3 Enterprises uses face-to-face meetings and also uses a cloud-based software. This lets everyone from the owner to the subcontractor have access to information at varying levels.
General contractors or project managers is another term for construction managers. They coordinate and supervise a wide variety of projects of all types including public, residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. General contractors can also consult with the client during the design phase to help refine construction plans and control costs. They choose the best material to build a sturdy foundation, like helical piles, and they make sure clients are satisfied.
Construction managers also work closely with other building specialists. These include architects, civil engineers, and trade workers. Especially when working on city-owned or municipal buildings, construction managers ensure all city regulations are met.
There are generally three sizes of industrial buildings or properties. Small, large, and “big box.”
Small buildings are single or double story buildings with a zone classification for industrial use. They have flexible interior space, warehouse, and office space. The businesses that use these types of buildings are small businesses such as mechanic shops, research labs, or start-ups.
Large buildings include medium to large warehouses and factories. The design is to complete the manufacture of goods or storage.
Logistic and distribution centers are usually in big box buildings. They hold and then distribute finished goods to stores and/or directly to customers.
