Construction Project  Management Guide

The purpose of this Handbook is to provide guidelines for use by public transit agencies (Agencies) undertaking substantial construction projects, either for the first time or with little prior experience with construction project management. 

It provides a comprehensive introduction to construction project management, including the applicability of the principles of project management and of all phases of project development—from project initiation through planning, environmental clearance, real estate acquisition, design, construction, commissioning, and closeout.
Definition of a Project:
A project is made up of a group of interrelated work activities constrained by a specific scope, budget, and schedule to deliver capital assets needed to achieve the strategic goals of an Agency. This Handbook is intended for management of capital projects involving the construction of facilities or systems. The word project is synonymous with the words capital project throughout this Handbook.
Project Manager’s Role:
A project’s execution is planned and controlled by the project manager. The project manager is assigned by the Agency, i.e., the Agency’s executive management. 

The project manager must have adequate authority to exercise the responsibility of forming and managing a team for support of the project. 

The project manager must have prior experience managing similar projects in the past. If an Agency cannot commit such an individual with adequate time and resources, the Agency is well advised to outsource project management services for the management of the project.

The project manager may be tasked with the management of multiple projects that may require the assignment of additional project managers for support. In such cases, the project manager is taking on the role of a program manager.
