The Construction Project Coordinators


Construction project coordinators are responsible for the planning and coordination of the various duties on a construction site. The coordinator is involved in the quality control and responsibilities on site. Mostly, the financial aspects of the work, which include the material cost and labor cost control, can be taken care of by a project manager. This is why the Construction Site Coordinator and Project Manager work hand in hand to ensure that everything is effectively controlled. At the construction site, the coordinator is mostly seen outdoors while the project manager is stationed at the office.


A coordinator is mostly supported by a number of personnel at the construction site, like the project engineer who has been employed by the company but has hired the coordinator. When it comes to huge projects that exceed $100 million, more than one coordinator would be involved. These coordinators can be grouped in tiers such as the super-structure coordinator, program coordinator, MEPF (mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection) coordinators, craft/trade coordinators, interior coordinators and assistant coordinators.

Project Coordinators Jobs Calgary

A construction coordinator is responsible for the completion and overall coordination of any construction work. The number of hours that a coordinator works is what would determine the amount of money that he/she is paid. A construction coordinator is very important on a construction site because they are the ones who are responsible for the work schedule and effectiveness of any construction work. It is important that a coordinator have a vast experience and knowledge of the different tasks that would be given to him during a construction project. The prospect of doing this work in Canada is high, because many construction sites are in need of more project coordinators and especially people with more experience and education in the right field.
