When renovating or refurbishing a property in London, project management can be an extremely challenging and time consuming because you are communicating with such a wide range of professional contractors as well as your local authority or managing agents. Residential building projects, especially in London’s conservation areas rely on excellent project management. The project manager schedules all the work that needs to be done, makes arrangements with all the contractors on your project and generally makes sure your refurbishment is going to plan and on schedule.
Some people take on the role of Project Manager themselves when they need renovation work on their home, but this can be a risky option and is often a mistake. Working with professional project managers helps ensure your renovation runs efficiently and as smoothly as possible, with minimal disruption to yourself.
Working with a competent project manager can save you a lot of time but if you chose the wrong one, it can also be quite costly and hinder the process. Working with an architectural design and local building company is a sensible option, because the professional project manager is part of the same team, assigned to your specific job. As well as improved communication and accountability, the project management is also included in the fees, with no additional project management fess incurred. You liaise with your project manager whenever you need to talk over your refurbishment, they will communicate with you and all the people involved in your renovation to find the right solutions.
A professional design and build company in London means the builders and designers are working for you and on the same team. This improves efficiency, speeds up decision making and ensures someone is responsible for your renovation. No one passes the buck, no one else to take the blame, nowhere to hide.
