The team members above are very important, but let me assure you the field team is what makes it all happen- the project superintendent who often works from 6am to 6pm or later m-f and most Saturdays, must manage 40 or more different trades (subcontractors) on a daily basis - create and update 3 week look ahead schedules, constantly solving issues that affect the critical path, budgets and success of the project, site trailer, security, pre-construction meetings, also interacts with building inspectors, vendors, OSHA, SWPPP and building codes, Architects, Engineers and the home owners, associations -change orders, redlining plans, as builts, quality assurance, risk management, RFI's and submittals, conflict resolution, daily reports, weekly safety/production and monthly owner's meetings and assistant superintendents, the field engineers, and all of the subcontractors. These hard working people work very hard as a team to deliver a quality product on time and on budget! Rarely are they mentioned in the company websites or recognized for their efforts. I want to say Thank you field teams!!

Completely agree with you. I'm a project engineer (basically assistant PM) and the superintendent has a tremendously hard job. They deserve all the pay they get.

Where is the contractor??? All contractors may not be civil engineers but they are very important as they have feild experience and arrange for workers and invest in the project to get the job done

Oppps, I can't believe they actual forgot the SURVEY ENGINEER who does the layout, orientation, and manage overall surveying of the project. Without it the dream project will not be implemented as they want it to be... how sad.

The Architect is useless. Its the Engineers, Project managers, and the actual workers that get it done. Anybody can have a vision and draft it. Engineers basicly edit their work so much that its not even their idea anymore.

The most important people in building projects are the Engineers and Construction Workers. The Architect, Quantity Surveyor and Facility Manager are basically costly useless middlemen why most budgets go over balance! To come under budget the owner can learn to do the Architects job himself as long as his work gets approved by the Engineers and  Construction Foremen as well do the managers and surveyors long as he gets approved by the banks.

Suji Mao (3 years ago)
as someone who is in structural engineering I am flattered even though what you are saying makes no sense at all. when a design build Contract is awarded an A/E firm will come up with the design many of the architects at this firm will have a structural degree. the main difference is that the as an architect you are thinking about different codes such as NFPA 101 where as on the structures side you refer more to ACI or AISC. so ideally since both the of these 2 have a structural background but are focusing on 2 different sets of requirements you will have a functional and stable building

i was just wondering isnt the project manager a civil engineer
Tedarion Johnson (2 years ago)
project managers can be civil engineers but majorily if not a CE architect they are people holding a BS construction science, construction management, project management it's self, ( can be someone without out a degree but has a whole lot of experience ) but it's been moving more to industries wanting someone with a BS in one of the fields i mentioned. that isn't the only ones who can take roll as the PM but they are the most known to do that roll.
David C (3 years ago)
+Elias Atallah Project managers are usually from the construction side of works, they would usually be an skilled forman with high management skills.
The Alaskan Carpenter (4 years ago)
think about it.... who actually builds the building. yees the builders!!!!! thanks to all the builders.
BLABBERTALK (3 years ago)
+Sam Timm Who makes sure it doesn't fall down and go boom, that's right the freaking Engineers!!!!!
The Alaskan Carpenter (4 years ago)
 engineers get payed way to much and get all of the credit. bunch of money scam artists instead of hard workers.
Nafiul Islam (3 years ago)
BLABBERTALK (3 years ago)
+Sam Timm You're thinking of Architects all they do is make the building look fancy they have to pass their plans onto the engineers for approval so that it won't collapse or burn down from a Electrical fire! The engineer is in charge of making the building safe to enter!!!!
The Alaskan Carpenter (4 years ago)
But the building would never come off of the paper plans that where prepared by the engineers if it wasn't for the skilled builders in construction industries and the mills that make the materials to create the structure. it seems like the actual people that make it 99% possible to make a building never get any accreditation for there endless labor and hard work that is put out to make  all possible. I bet there are some engineers out there that have never experienced the the hard work it takes to be a skilled builder. but yet they get all of the accreditation. silly. 
BLABBERTALK (3 years ago)
+Sam Timm Lot of Engineers started off as Construction Workers just like some CEO'S of corporations started off as Bag Boys!!!!

I have a question although you posted this a month ago. Can the PM and CM be one person depending on the size of the company, industry or development being built? If not which between the two on average has a greater salary and more efforts to put into a development job.
Tedarion Johnson (2 years ago)
yes there's a lot of CM who act as project manager. you can't discount the value of being able to place PE ( professional engineer ) after your name as well, which might still be possible from the right construction management program. you can definitely grow as a CM depending on the experience and certifications you have. big bonus if you become a licensed PE on top of it all
Aaron Seh (5 years ago)
4 women? that's alot , unless you're gay
Deborah J (5 years ago)
No. The CM is typically on-site. The PM may or may not be on-site, and in fact, may never even see the site.
Tedarion Johnson (2 years ago)
the CM can be the PM. a lot of PM are CM. ( not all but a lot are ). depends on your experience and company really.
Eric Goetz (5 years ago)

Bosstraxx (6 years ago)
Yes that is correct, glad to see others interested in this career.
247troller (6 years ago)
In small construction yes, however in larger scale projects the CM deals with the management of construction only whereas the PM, is the manager from start to finish.
Bosstraxx (6 years ago)
That is true, Im in college right now and I hope to get my degree in construction management, from your concern I can infer that your doing the same thing?
r3dko (6 years ago)
Not quite. Depending on the industry/company, these two are traditionally different. In some companies, the CM presides over a group of PM's. In others, a Project Manager is assigned multiple construction managers, who in turn may work with other CM's and PM's to complete the project.
Bosstraxx (6 years ago)
Project Manager/Construction manager. Its the same thing
Tedarion Johnson (2 years ago)
yes and no depending on your company
siseko bonelwa (6 years ago)
awesome video..but what about the construction manager??
Tedarion Johnson (2 years ago)
they're usually the PM in some cases but if not they are the ones who get involved around pre-construction time period ( not very beginning ) and on throughout.

Rowee Santos-Delgado (7 years ago)
Great concept, great script! There's one character missing here. The Owner. He/she also has to know the options and limitations - by being involved especially in the preliminary stages. He must also be prepared to entrust (and not encroach on) responsibilities to each of the 6 professionals.
