What is ParsCo Construction Project Management?
The Project Management Institute defines project management as "the art of directing and coordinating human and material resources throughout the life of a project by using modern management techniques to achieve predetermined objectives of scope, cost, time, quality and participation satisfaction."
"Construction management demands an understanding of the construction and design process as well as knowledge of modern business management. The construction project has a finite time frame and an outcome-oriented planning process for project completion with very specific objectives", explains Amir M. Fooladi, President of ParsCo Construction, "A successful project must start with a clear justification and definition of the project; proceed according to a detailed strategic plan, and deliver demonstrable outcomes. Certain elements in the strategic planning process will differ from project to project, such as the size, scope and location, but as a rule, project management for construction has much in common with other project types."
The ParsCo Project Manager
The most important person on a project is the ParsCo Project Manager, who is ultimately responsible for the success of the project. ParsCo's Project Manager plans, organizes and controls every detail of the project.
ParsCo focuses on certain objectives in managing the project that must be clearly defined during the strategic planning process. These may change throughout the course depending on any resource constraints or other potential conflicts.
- Create a communication system to keep all stakeholders and team members informed throughout the project
- Maximize resources by procuring materials, labor and equipment in keeping with the project's stated schedule and plan
- Clearly state scope, budget, schedule, performance standards and means of selecting stakeholders and other participants
- Implement project tasks by properly coordinating and controlling every possible element of the project
Strategic Planning and Organizing Tasks
The strategic plan of most construction projects depends on the market demands and available resources. This process sets the priorities and schedule for the tasks necessary to complete the operation's objectives.
· During the planning process, the project may be organized in a variety of ways. They may be a combination of the following:
· Sequential, in which the project is separated into stages completely in a consecutive sequence of tasks.
· Parallel, in which the project contains independent portions that happen simultaneously.
· Staggered, in which the different tasks may overlap each other.
Key Elements in Project Planning
According to the Project Management Institute (PMI®) there are nine specific areas that require a project manager's attention and should be incorporated into the strategic plan:
1. Integration, to ensure that the various project elements are effectively coordinated.
2. Scope, to ensure that all the work required (and only the required work) is included.
3. Time, to provide an effective project schedule.
4. Cost, to identify needed resources and maintain budget control.
5. Quality, to ensure functional requirements are met.
6. Human resources, to effectively employ project personnel.
7. Communications, to ensure effective internal and external communications.
8. Risk, to analyze and mitigate potential risks.
9. Procurement, to obtain necessary resources from external sources.
Construction project management is extremely challenging and complex. To do it well, the project manager must possess excellent communication and planning skills, and be able to discuss planning and strategies with the stakeholders. There are many tasks, stages, and procedures, all of which may change during the project.
"One of the biggest things that sets ParsCo apart is our extensive strategic planning, solid leadership, establishing a well-defined scope, and teaming with a responsive group of designers/subcontractors/stakeholders" says Amir M. Fooladi, "this is what helps us forge healthy work relationships which all contribute to the project success."

Customer service is more than just a catch phrase at ParsCo Construction.
To us, it means cultivating and maintaining strong relationships by collaborating with our clients to understand their needs and help them achieve their goals from the start. Maybe that means changing our plans to minimize disruption to a business or simply understanding that quality construction services mean providing prompt and accurate information without the client having to ask. We do not consider a project a success unless our client is completely satisfied. It is this attitude that has led to repeat business and high-quality work.
Right alongside customer service, safety is a core value at ParsCo Construction. Our Zero Accidents—No Excuses philosophy is a daily mantra representing our uncompromised commitment to provide a safe and healthy work environment. Every day, we plan safety into each task to meet our goal of zero injuries, which means zero negative impact to our workers, the project, and the client.
ParsCo Construction is large enough to offer the range of services needed, but small enough to deliver projects with personal attention to our clients’ quality standards, schedules, and budgets. Our skilled teams take pride in guiding a project from conception to successful completion. ParsCo Construction partners with clients from the very beginning to listen to their needs and develop a clear and shared vision for a project. Then we collaborate with talented architects, engineers, and subcontractors to bring that vision to life. This interactive approach ensures quality workmanship and attention to detail every step of the way and a finished structure you can be proud of. We get it and we get it done.
