Construction project management falls under the management umbrella. In the construction industry, many aspects of the projects require project management of the owner, designer, constructor, and/or supplier. However, since the owner is the ultimate integrator and the general organizer of the construction process of the project, the project management of the owner is a core component of project management.
For the developer, the construction management model can be divided into three types: independent project management, fully commissioned project management, and partially commissioned project management. Usually, the developer adopts the latter two models. The relationship between commissioned engineering consulting and commissioned project management can be understood as follows: engineering project management is a part of engineering consulting; its scope of services does not include designing, but does include project management of the design process.
Project management can include the designing process and even pre-project planning. A complete project management plan should include a project proposal, a feasibility study, a bidding agency, project supervision, cost analysis, project planning, and project management of the design process.
Project management and general contracting are two completely different concepts. The former is a form of engineering consulting, and the latter is a contracting model. There are fundamental differences between the nature, content, objective, risk, and terms of the two concepts.
