Throughout the execution stage of a project, measures taken to ensure project control and record keeping (data collection) become tools of utmost importance to managers and other stake holders in the construction process. These give the manager manifestation of the progress and problems associated with the project. The associated project problems refer to almost completed or completed project works that surpass the budget, time plan or of undesired quality. The task of construction management techniques is to give a fair indication of the existence and extent of project problems to enable project control. This report seeks to identify the management techniques used during the construction of Rwentuuha reinforced concrete tank stand, necessary documents used to achieve the management control measures and overall performance of the project. Literature on construction management techniques used on major construction sites was widely reviewed and common approaches to project management and their impact of project execution and performance were identified. In order to identify the management techniques adopted on the project during the execution stage, the target objectives at six main stages during construction that is conception of the project stage, design stage, preconstruction stage, procurement stage, construction stage and post construction stage were examined. The main project management techniques adopted were project sustainability, project duration or time control, product quality control and project cost control. Their significance was safe working environment, timely delivery of the project, acceptable works and identification of budget overruns. The management techniques in focus were however limited to this project, a multitude of other management techniques may be adopted for other projects.
