The day usually starts around 7:30 in the morning with a call from the construction site. During that call we discuss important tasks – daily chores – e.g. creating correspondence, obtaining and bundling information and coordinating the work of specialists on site.
This is followed by the morning walk around the construction site. The presence of the site manager is important because he/she is responsible for the safety and coordination of the employees as a personal contact. He/she also holds discussions with different specialists. There are checks to see the construction progress and to see which problems have occurred or could occur in the future. It is important to inspect the construction site with “open eyes” and to see which work has priority and what needs adjustment. A constant eye on your own safety as well as that of the other employees is a matter of course. A tour around the site usually results in new tasks, there are new coordination activities between the specialists and the suppliers. The current coordination with the employer and possible plan changes or adjustments are just as important.
If the tasks and the tour on the site have been completed, it is necessary to create and evaluate a production log. The site manager then completes the administrative tasks – for example checking the supplier invoices, writing invoices, limiting internal costs and services, formulating supplements and much more. The day ends with another tour around the construction site.
