Project Management Services
Our philosophy is to provide the highest level of service possible whilst at the same time providing our Clients with a specific and tailored service for each and every project.
Our skill is reflected in achieving the balance between cost, time, quality and flexibility in delivering the project to the Clients’ expectations and satisfaction.
'Good leaders are hard to find, but great project managers are rearer still.'
Our Project Management Services Include:
Our intention is to ensure that Clients are able to relieve themselves of the burden of day-to-day detail whilst resting assured that they retain the right of decision and that the service we provide is tailored to meet their own special requirements, through the control and monitoring of all activities contributing to the completion of work with particular attention to the following:
The co-ordination and management of the activities leading to the establishment of a design brief, including the planning of the Client’s operational requirements.
The co-ordination of the activities of the Design Team to ensure that the design brief is translated into an acceptable design which meets the Client’s functional requirements.
Programming and control of progress at every stage of the project.
Cost Control at every stage of the project.
Detailed reports on all aspects of the project are provided throughout the design, construction and maintenance periods of the project. The frequency of the reports are agreed with the Client at the outset and are programmed to coincide with the Client’s financial or organisational requirements.
Monitoring Progress and Identifying Corrective Action
We always envisage an active role in the monitoring process involving attendance at meetings with Clients, Design Team, construction team or others, the frequency and timing of which depends upon the size, complexity and duration of the project.
Progress information is summarised in monthly reports which identify to the Client/user areas of importance and sound the appropriate warning notes regarding pending problems. In the event of deviation from the general programme, we analyse the effects on the progress of the individual elements of the projects to the overall project and take appropriate action to correct any unwanted deviation.
