"In the future of construction, a multi-disciplinary superintendent and project manager role that blurs the traditional lines between field and office will be crucial in ensuring the successful execution of construction projects, much like they would have been through separate team members. They will (still) be responsible for overseeing and coordinating various aspects of the project from start to finish, ensuring that it is completed on time, within budget, and to the required (safety and) quality standards. However, their role will evolve to adapt to technological advancements and changing industry practices. Every project will have a group of GC 2.0s managing the job."
