CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGEMENT
CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Regardless of the size, organising a construction project is a complex operation and requires particular skills to ensure that the works are completed efficiently, with minimum disruption and in compliance with quality and regulatory standards. Cutting corners in this area can lead to expensive overspend, long delays and unnecessary mistakes. Whether you are constructing a property from scratch, altering, extending or refurbishing your existing premises, I can provide professional advice and representation throughout the construction process from feasibility to handover, within the constraints of people, time, budget and resources and saving you a significant amount of stress and worry.
Contract administration is about more than simply overseeing contractors and their related paperwork, you need to understand common construction practices and have a clear understanding of the contract scope, the implications of terms and clauses used. I can prepare the specification, procure the most suitable contract type, inspect the works at regular intervals to ensure the quality of the project is what was agreed in the contract and manage your contractors without any bias. I can also advise on collateral warranties, insurance, defects, extensions of time, letters of intent, loss and expense, payment, planning and programming, practical completion, and termination.
Project Management (start to finish)
If you are not experienced in managing construction projects, or do not have sufficient time to oversee your build, I can ensure that all stages of the project are managed from feasibility through to the efficient running of the works and successful completion. This includes drawing up the necessary plans and specifications, keeping the project running on schedule, checking that the build meets legal requirements and regulations and ensuring clear lines of communication between the build team. As an experienced project manager, I can give you peace of mind that your costs will be closely monitored, that the schedule will be adhered to, any issues are quickly resolved and the project successfully executed.
A specification is an essential part of the process for any construction project, ranging from small works remedial repairs to large developments. I can develop your brief into a tailored and detailed specification for your construction project, including materials, performance and design. This specification can then be used to prepare a detailed schedule of works and as part of a tendering exercise to obtain competitive costs for the project.
One of the critical stages in any building project is obtaining quotations for the works required but how do you ensure that when you come to compare those prices, that the specification has been interpreted correctly, that the works will be carried out to the same standard with the same quality methods and materials? I can provide a single point of contact through which other professional appointments such as Architects, Structural, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers can be co-ordinated and ensure that tenders can be validly compared in a meaningful way.
