a real world point of view
Construction managers, generally known in the United States as construction coordinators are in charge of every aspect of set construction. They are usually hired by the production designer, who is their immediate supervisor. Under the construction manager are a number of people, including painters, construction chargehands, production buyers, riggers, practical electricians and a whole host of other members of the art department.
