Virtually all civil engineering structures are unique. They have to be designed for some specific purpose at some specific location before they can be constructed and put to use. Consequently the completion of any civil engineering project involves five stages of activity which comprise the following:
1. Defining the location and nature of the proposed works and the quality and magnitude of the service they are to provide.
2. Obtaining any powers and permissions necessary to construct the works.
3. Designing the works and estimating their probable cost.
4. Constructing the works.
5. Testing the works as constructed and putting them into operation.
All the civil engineering works need management of some sort. Construction and Project management is a foundation for the success or failure of any civil engineering project. Project manager is the person that caters all the activities during the project and ensure smooth execution of the activities without any delay so that project can be completed within minimum duration and optimum quality.
