The Project Manager is a construction professional who can be given executive authority and responsibility to assist the client to identify the project objectives and subsequently supply the technical expertise to assess, procure, monitor and control the external resources required to achieve those objectives, defined in terms of time, cost, quality and function.

The Project Manager is supposed to have certain skills which are the following:

  • Management
  • Construction Law
  • Contract Law
  • Value Management
  • Value Engineering
  • Procurement and Contract Options
  • Project Planning
  • Briefing
  • Cost Control
  • Risk Management
  • Contract Administration
  • Dispute Resolution


Essentially the project management system places most emphasis on planning and management. Therefore, a person, usually an architect always other than the project architect, with the relevant project management skills is required. The Project Manager is likely to appear in one of two principal roles: either simply as a technical agent of the employer for the purposes of the project or as the professional with the authority to manage the project, including organizing and co-ordinating all the consultants. In either case, the Project Manager acts as a link between the client and the design team
