Construction management or construction project management (CPM) is the overall planning, coordination, and control of a project from beginning to completion. CPM is aimed at meeting a client s requirement in order to produce a functionally and financially viable project.The construction industry is composed of five sectors: residential, commercial, heavy civil, industrial, and environmental. A construction manager holds the same responsibilities and completes the same processes in each
sector. All that separates a construction manager in one sector from one in another is the knowledge of the construction site. This may include different types of equipment, materials, subcontractors, and possibly locations.In 2010 the Chartered Institute of Building published its construction management definition based upon the Institute is 45,000 members and the work they do. The designation Chartered Construction Manager is available to full corporate members (MCIOB) and fellows (FCIOB) of the Chartered Institute of Building.
