The management of construction is an enterprise that involves many people with diverse interests, talents and backgrounds. The owner, the design professional and the Contractor comprise the primary triad of parties, but others, such as sub-contractors, material suppliers, and bankers, insurance and bonding companies, attorneys and public agency officials, are vital elements of the project team whose interrelated roles must be coordinated to assure a successful project (Banette, 2003). Throughout the project life cycle, from the time the owner first contemplates launching a construction project to that celebrated time, many months or years later, when the completed project is ready for use, the tasks carried out by the various parties vary in type and intensity. This project report presents the technical aspects from a construction management perspective as observed and practiced by the author while working as the construction management executive for the Project Manager during the construction stage of the study project. The report provides an in-sight on implementation of construction project management aspects and their contribution towards the successful project delivery. The primary focus here is on the construction Contractor, who carries the lead responsibility for the on-site installation of works and all of the associated planning and follow up by the Project Manager. It is however important, at the same time, to understand how other people and organizations contribute to project success.
