The success and failure of a person who is working as a construction manager is something that has to be seen to be believed. In many of the other professions, the success and the failure depends on the kind of work that the individual has done or does. On the other hand, as far as the job of a manager in the construction industry is concerned, the success and failure depends on a variety of factors that are rarely in the hands of the person who is working.

Some of the important factors that are important in the success of the construction manager are listed and explained here in detail.


The material that the person uses in the construction is a very important factor that decides between success and failure in the person. There are various kinds of construction material that can be used in the construction of buildings. The person should make sure that there is usage of material that is very durable. If there is not much material that is durable, then the building that has been constructed will not last for a long time and the construction manager will the person who will be blamed for it. To avoid these kind of scandals and problems, it is very important that highly durable materials are used in the construction of the buildings.

Cost effectiveness:

The cost effectiveness of the construction is also important. Though the decrease in the cost should not compromise on the quality, because the quality is very important as far as the construction is concerned, but on the other hand, it should be remembered that the person should also think of the cost and make sure that the money that is spent on the construction is lesser than what has been budgeted for. If the cost overshoots the budget, then it shows the lack of efficiency of the construction manager.


The workforce that the manager has is an important factor that determines the success or failure. Though it is important that the manager should make sure that he himself is experienced, it is also important that the work force that is working under the person is also experienced. This will ensure success in the various construction projects for which the manager is in charge. The workforce is the ones who are actually involved in the construction. The manager cannot be in every place at all times, so the manager can only plan and implement the various activities that are carried out by the work force.

Planning and implementation:

The construction manager should be the person who is able to plan and implement all the activities that are related to the construction of the building. This is a very important part of the job of the person who is the manager of a construction project. He is the ultimate authority and is also the person who is answerable in case something goes wrong. To make sure that nothing goes wrong, the person should plan all the projects in time and to the best of the ability.

These are some of the important factors that should be kept in the mind of the person who is the construction manager for him to be successful. Once these are implemented, the project will be completed successfully on time and the manager will get suitably rewarded too.
