Median Salary Expectations:

How statistics are calculated

We count how many offers each candidate received and for what salary. For example, if a Project Delivery with a salary of $4,500 received 10 offers, then we would count him 10 times. If there were no offers, then he would not get into the statistics either.

The graph column is the total number of offers. This is not the number of vacancies, but an indicator of the level of demand. The more offers there are, the more companies try to hire such a specialist. 5k+ includes candidates with salaries >= $5,000 and < $5,500.

Median Salary Expectation – the weighted average of the market offer in the selected specialization, that is, the most frequent job offers for the selected specialization received by candidates. We do not count accepted or rejected offers.

Project Delivery

Project delivery includes all activities involved in the execution and completion of a project, such as the building or refurbishing of structures. The process involves planning, designing, and building activities conducted by multiple stakeholders. In essence, the project delivery process requires the active participation of different roles, the law, rules and regulations and specific protocols designed to facilitate the execution of a project.

Key Entities in Project Delivery

  • Project Owner: The project owner starts the construction project; the owner finances the project; the owner makes the final decisions on the contractor, delivery method, etc.
  • Designer: Normally an architect or an engineer, the designer is the protagonist of the design process, who comes up with the idea for the building and supervises its construction.
  • Contractor: The contractor runs the site of the construction project by hiring subcontractors for the tasks.
  • Construction Project Manager: The construction project manager acts as a consultant to the project owner, monitoring the schedule and the budget of the building project.

Phases of Project Delivery

  1. Planning: Project Planning: This phase involves brainstorming about the project, its goals, scope, creating stakeholder register, work breakdown structure, communication plan, schedule management, risk identification and mitigation plan, and project owner and budget etc.
  2. Design: After the planning phase, the project moves to the design phase where the design team writes specifications and foundations as part of the project objectives and requirements. Additionally, the business case, which includes design specifications, deliverables, estimated budget and timeline, is presented to the (project/business) sponsors.
  3. Implementation: Once in the post-design phase, the project enters the phase of implementation where the rubber (or concrete) meets the road – this phase primarily occurs over a long period of time as the majority of the work happens during implementation. Construction and monitoring activities both develop during this phase as the contractors piece together the designs. This portion of the project happens at a pace determined largely by project goals, schedule and owner-led changes.
  4. Delivery Close-Out:Project closure is the final phase of project delivery. All remaining tasks and activities are completed, namely assessing the project performance related to the initial goals, the administrative fulfilment activities, the evaluation of the performance of the project team, and the recording of all lessons learned during the project lifecycle.
