What are the Responsibilities of an Electrical Project Manager?

by | Jan 10, 2023 | 0 comments |

Construction projects move along at a rapid pace and multiple changes to the original plans are common. Even skilled general contractors can find it difficult to keep up and ensure the project is running on time. Electrical project managers need access to resources and tools to effectively deal with incoming data. To deal with the changing challenges, the Action Services Group electrical project managers are introducing new technologies to streamline project coordination.

What is Electrical Project Coordination?

The Oxford Handbook of Project Management describes electrical project coordination as ensuring communication and information-sharing among everyone involved in the project. It consists of organizing people, information, and job activities so every aspect of the project runs seamlessly.

Project coordination should happen at the internal and external project levels.

Internal coordination ensures company resources are kept up-to-date on the project status and have the tools necessary to provide support. It includes procurement specialists, the prefab department, field staff, accounting, and estimating personnel.

External coordination refers to parties who are part of the project team but are not employed by the company. Some examples include engineers, architects, suppliers, and vendors.

All of our Action Services Group electrical project managers utilize ServicesPoint Solutions – Powered by Fexa, our advanced enterprise management systems, that helps streamline project management and acts as a focal point for connecting people, processes, and technology. Learn more here.
