After your design work comes to a close, the project is then ready to be built, and this is where CK Architectural’s building project management service across Lincolnshire comes into play. Whether you’re working on an extension, loft conversion, new build home, or even a commercial project, project management has a huge host of benefits to make your build as efficient and high quality as possible without excess wastage resulting from miscommunication, disagreements or mistakes.
We will define the scope of the project in collaboration with you to identify sequences the activities needed to successfully complete the project and then create a detailed work plan. We will then determine the resources (time, money, equipment, etc) required to complete the project and develop a schedule for completion that effectively allocates resources and activities. A review of the project schedule will be conducted with you and the contractors and the schedule revised as required. The objectives and measures upon which the project will be evaluated at its completion will also be determined.
We can oversee the project from beginning to end, taking away the headache of finding a trusted builder and making sure they stay on time, on design and on budget. You will be regularly updated of the progress and costings, working with us rather than the builder so nothing is left to interpretation, and we will control who gets paid after checking agreed stages and standards have been reached.
We create construction drawings where needed on top of the other drawings we have on offer prior to the build. These include further specifications for the build where required including fixtures and fittings, and any other details required for the builder to work from. This is also a useful time to include anything you would like excluded form the build so that you can do the work yourself or use other services you prefer.
In addition to the drawings, our project management services also mean you’re able to utilise our services in selecting your builders, too. We’ll work with you to find the perfect match for your build, making sure you’re avoiding potentially poor workmanship and that you also have access to our own recommended builders that we’ve worked with in the past.
Selecting the right builder for the job is only half of the battle. To make sure that your project goes exactly as it should and to keep everything above board, we’re also able to administer the building contract too. That provides both you and the builder with contractual safety to ensure certain criteria are met, and the conditions of the build are outlined too, such as exclusion zones at certain times and the facilities the builders are to have access to.
SCHEDULE OF WORKS
To move the build forward with the upmost efficiency, a schedule of work for your specific project can then also be created too. That means we you have a clear timeline of what should be happening and when, and this helps to avoid rushing or delays and makes sure everything is done adequately and to the correct standard.
Finally, we have site inspections to offer throughout your build too. This is where we’ll visit your site fortnightly to ensure everything is running smoothly and to check for build quality and progress against the contracts and schedule of works. This is also the perfect time for us to mediate any concerns you might have or to convey anything else you’d like presented to the builder professionally and clearly.
After all of the above is done, we’ll finalise the project with you and make sure it’s handed over at the point you’re happy with, ready to use and with any snagging taking place to rectify possible issues.
Project management is a job that requires experience and skill to manage the huge range of resources and contractors required on building projects and is an invaluable service to save time, stress, and money.
