About Construction management : Construction management (CM) is a professional service that uses specialized, project management techniques to oversee the planning, design, and construction of a project, from its beginning to its end. The purpose of CM is to control a project’s time / delivery, cost and quality—sometimes referred to as a project’s “triple constraint.” CM is compatible with all project delivery systems, including design-bid-build, design-build, CM At-Risk and Public Private Partnerships. Professional construction managers may be reserved for lengthy, large-scale, high budget undertakings (commercial real estate,transportation infrastructure, industrial facilities, and military infrastructure), called capital projects.

More About Construction management :
Construction management is a broad and complex discipline that integrates the multiple stages of large-scale construction projects with the detailed technology and knowledge needed to complete a construction project. As a result, Civil and Environmental Engineers with knowledge in business, management, public policy, and technical aspects of the broad world of construction are vitally important.
As a student of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northeastern University, you can focus on construction management to learn how to approach and lead construction projects from a sustainable and holistic perspective. This means you will be exposed not only to technical engineering concepts but also to a much broader application of these concepts as they relate to large and complex projects, where you will learn and apply ideas related to construction project control and organization, sustainable design and technologies in construction, logistics, resource management, incorporating technological and business innovation, and economic and environmental viability. Our faculty at Northeastern work in this highly interdisciplinary field on optimal material and energy use in urban buildings and infrastructure, sustainable and high performance building design, development of sustainable building technologies, risk assessment, construction productivity and managing construction costs/scheduling for optimal efficiency.
The functions of construction management typically include the following:
- Specifying project objectives and plans including delineation of scope, budgeting, scheduling, setting performance requirements, and selecting project participants.
- Maximizing the resource efficiency through procurement of labor, materials and equipment.
- Implementing various operations through proper coordination and control of planning, design, estimating, contracting and construction in the entire process.
- Developing effective communications and mechanisms for resolving conflicts.
The Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) states the most common responsibilities of a Construction Manager fall into the following 7 categories: Project Management Planning, Cost Management, Time Management, Quality Management, Contract Administration, Safety Management, and CM Professional Practice. CM professional practice includes specific activities, such as defining the responsibilities and management structure of the project management team, organizing and leading by implementing project controls, defining roles and responsibilities, developing communication protocols, and identifying elements of project design and construction likely to give rise to disputes and claims.
