Job Description

Concrete Foreman Duties and Responsibilities

While a concrete foreman’s day-to-day duties and responsibilities are determined by where they work, there are many core tasks associated with the role. Based on our analysis of job listings, these include:

 

Manage Construction Projects

Concrete foremen oversee concrete construction projects from preparation to completion. This requires breaking the project into different stages, planning the people and resources needed for each stage, and handling any problems that could affect the project’s quality and completion time.

 

Follow Blueprints and Drawings

Whether they’re building concrete walls, sidewalks, or a full building, concrete foremen use blueprints and drawings to plan and execute each step of the project. This documentation also helps them troubleshoot problems when laying concrete to ensure a stable structure.

 

Supervise and Assist Crew Members

Assigning tasks to construction crew members and supervising their work are important aspects of the job. Beyond providing supervision, concrete foremen often obtain materials, lift heavy items, and load the work truck to help crew members.

 

Prepare and Install Concrete

Concrete foremen measure and mix concrete in the proper quantities for the project. They use power and hand tools to pour the concrete onto the surface, finish it, and seal it.

 

Complete Daily Reports and Documentation

This management role requires concrete foremen to keep records of all time worked and materials used. Concrete foremen also create work schedules and project documents they share with team members and other managers.

 

Concrete Foreman Skills and Qualifications

 

Concrete foremen should have experience laying concrete and working on a construction team to complete complex projects. They also need leadership skills and an understanding of building codes and safety protocols. Employers usually prefer an associate’s or bachelor’s degree related to construction and at least three years of work experience. They also look for candidates with the following skills:

Construction management – concrete foremen understand all stages of managing a construction project, whether they’re setting up contracts, assigning staff, planning the project’s phases, or signing off with the customer

Concrete installation – this role requires knowing how to prepare, pour, lay, and finish concrete using the proper tools

Forecasting and estimation – whether they’re estimating materials needed or providing an expected completion date to the client, concrete foremen are skilled estimators and understand the factors that affect project completion

People management – concrete foremen assign work and supervise other construction workers involved in the concrete installation process. This requires knowing how to motivate others and handle conflicts among workers

Analytical thinking – analyzing blueprints and ensuring a project meets all specifications requires critical thinking. When the project schedule goes off track, concrete foremen must analyze how to rearrange activities or add resources to prevent delays
