“I got trained for Primavera P6 PPM through Compass Consult. Honestly, the things that got me in were their competitive pricing and payment plans in offer. The thing that I highly admire about the training is that it is a very practical, hands-on training wherein you can learn while working on your own project. The trainers are highly experienced and fundamentally strong. I would strongly recommend the training to someone who needs hands-on experience in P6.”
The scope and benefits of project management in the construction industry
Find out what project management in construction looks like and the benefits it provides to the various stakeholders involved in large-scale construction projects.
What is project management in construction?
Project management is important, regardless of its scale, to ensure that every step of a construction project is optimised to achieve specific goals and objectives without exceeding the budget, missing deadlines or compromising the quality of project deliverables.
Efficient project management enables an effective and data-backed decision-making process for allocating manpower, materials, equipment and time at every stage of the construction project.
But that’s not all. Project management in construction offers many other benefits to all stakeholders involved.
Benefits of project management in the construction industry
Better risk mitigation
With proper project planning, potential issues or shortcomings that could arise during a construction project can be detected and resolved early on with mitigation strategies. This minimises project delays as issues are tackled efficiently and effectively by coming up with new strategies and solutions.
Improved cost control
Budget is an important factor to consider in any project. Effective project management allows project managers to see the bigger picture and make budget allocations to complete the project without exhausting the project budget. Project management also helps project teams identify cost-saving opportunities.
Project management gives a reasonable timeframe to optimise project action tasks and scheduling to ensure on-time completion of a construction project. Project management in construction allows project managers to set deadlines for each stage of the project to make it easier to track and monitor progress.
Better quality assurance
By implementing set project management control measures, project managers can ensure the deliverables provided meet the required standards and specifications of their clients. This prevents costly reworks and also keeps clients satisfied with the final outcome of the project by exceeding their expectations.

Equipment was then delivered promptly to the location we requested. The project does not start until the new year, but given the excellent service thus far, I am highly confident it will not have any issues with the network connectivity setup."
"The training session led by Sam was very interactive and informative. The sessions were easy to follow despite having no previous experience with P6. I enjoyed completing all the exercises used to help teach us the software's capabilities, and props for using relatable industry examples. Thanks for a great training session!"
