Like all managerial work, construction managers lead and oversee all facets of construction projects from start to finish. They keep an eye on finances, they make sure good attendance is observed, they check  if there are any safety hazards around and many more.

Market Demand

Thanks to the commercial building boom for real estate and healthcare, and government spending on transportation development, the demand for construction managers is expected to grow. Malaysia’s construction industry is set for significant growth in 2014 and beyond, due to rising levels of state and private sector investment. Industry growth will be steady as several major projects are set to start in the near future, including the Tun Razak Exchange financial centre.

Education

To qualify as a construction manager, a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, construction technology, management and other related courses is required. Some companies give preference to those who have entry-level experience so it’s important to develop your knowledge and skills by taking internship opportunities. Specialisation is also valued in this industry as some employers hire candidates who have expertise in hospital buildings, tunnels, and so forth.
