What I liked
The majority of my 8-10 hour work day was spent on a busy construction site shadowing or completing tasks for the project manager or superintendent. I had many opportunities to demonstrate what I’ve learned in school but also learned lots about the day to day processes construction managers are responsible for (meetings, schedule, inspections, cleanup, etc.). Watching the trades at work was a great way to learn the sequencing of activities as well as gain technical knowledge. I was also involved in PM duties like RFI’s, change order requests, and communicating with the architect. Some of the things I took part in off site were a turnover meeting, owner’s rep meeting, and estimating.
