Our client, who is an industrial unit owner and developer, approached us to help him develop several commercial properties in the Worcestershire area. This project was a 22,000 square foot new build and included project managing the construction of a mix of warehousing and distribution space, and offices.
With a number of large projects happening at the same time, our client was aware that he needed additional project oversight to ensure that the construction works were completed on budget, to the correct specification and to schedule. Our building project manager Mario was given the task of overseeing each of the 4 projects for our client.
Our project manager was appointed in the role of Contract Administrator. This involves liaising with and coordinating the build team to ensure that they build according to the contract, and that any issues or changes are dealt with promptly and correctly. We visit the building site regularly to inspect the works, send emails and make phone-calls to keep the project on track. In projects of this nature budget, programmes have to be tightly adhered to, and we believe in chairing regular, minuted progress meetings to ensure that the build team keep on track. This is also true of variations, and our QS team and project managers work together to ensure that all variations are monitored, controlled and reported throughout the build. This gives our clients an additional level of control, and is key to making informed financial decisions.
The industrial unit was completed in line with our clients instructions and expectations, and we are pleased to say that Mario and our QS team we are now working on our 5th construction project with the the company.
