Construction requires a lot of steps and people. Construction project managers manage and schedule this process, often juggling many things at once. They work with clients to help them decide what they want to do, including how to incorporate green building practices. They spend time in the office and at construction sites. This work requires using and understanding spreadsheets, reading blue prints and drawings, and being able to problem solve.
