We deliver on quality, time and on budget
There is a long list of critical factors that make the difference between a home transformation project coming in on quality, on time and on budget. Or not.
It requires a project manager with the experience to know how to stay on track the whole length of the journey; where the pitfalls and risks are; someone who has the technical knowledge to ensure nobody pulls the wool over their eyes; is capable of meticulous planning and organisation; has a structured process; is great at problem solving; and knows how to get the best from a number of different people working on-site.
Below is a list of a few practical elements that we take care of with our team of trained professionals, who work with absolute precision and follow a methodology that we have created specifically for the residential home market (available on request).
- Submitting and liaising with your local planning office - when applicable.
- Drafting your detailed tender package and sending out to our known and trusted builders as well as any that you propose.
- Regular credit checking and referencing of builders and other key suppliers.
- Contracting builders and specialists such as structural engineers, party wall surveyors, geologists etc.
- Engaging and mobilising specialist contractors and trades people.
- Project planning (Gantt charts), ongoing project management and rescheduling.
- Quality control of all on-site works.
- Identifying and managing potential project risks (e.g. construction methods, weather conditions, access rights, health and safety, site security).
- Resolving day-to-day queries and issues.
- Managing change control procedures to ensure that all knock on effects are known and addressed, that all changes have full client approval, and most importantly technical drawings and budgets are updated to reflect them.
- Scheduling the buying and delivery of all fixtures, fittings, furniture and soft furnishings.
- Ensuring that all deliveries on-site meet their specification, quantities and quality.
- Budgeting, cash-flow management and authorising payments on your behalf throughout the project lifecycle.
- Reporting to you and other stakeholder groups with the required and desired level of detail (both written and visual formats).
- Collecting and producing project documentation, including a detailed brief at the outset, contracts, change control orders, handover packs (drawings, manuals, certificates, guarantees etc.)
- Obtaining statutory building regulations' approval from an approved inspector.
