Loft Conversion Project Management , Major House Remodel London
Loft conversion project management
Loft conversion project management is an increasingly important service required by clients in and around London.
When planning a loft conversion, one of the first things to consider is project management. Simple conversions can be carried out by a specialist, but if the works include significant refurbishment or remodelling of your home it makes sense to instruct a proper architect and an experienced independent project management company.
Our client in inner London had decided to carry out a loft conversion to extend and remodel her four storey period townhouse. In doing so she also created two large modern apartments. The upper levels of the house were redesigned by the architect to create a light, airy and contemporary open plan entertaining space. The design also added additional accommodation for family and guests. A new glazed open-tread staircase was installed. Finally two new outdoor roof terraces were installed, one on each of the two upper levels, to take advantage of the views across the rooftops and beyond.
Working closely with the client and architect, CLPM were brought in to produce a budget for the scheme. We then carried out the tender and to managed the costs of project throughout the build. We also carried out the project management role of contract administrator for the builder on site. As is often the case with large projects of this type, there was a need to try to stretch the budget as much as possible. We helped review the fixtures and fittings selected to bring costs in line. We supported our client by looking at alternative specifications, and introduced her to more affordable suppliers who could still deliver the high quality design and finish required for the project.
CLPM Services used by our clients:
Design Review, Budget, Tender Process, Monthly Cost Reporting. Contract Administration with Project Management role with main contractor with site inspection.
Every time something came up, I felt it was a challenge, but one that CLPM would overcome. I genuinely would recommend them to anybody. It’s hugely beneficial not having to be on site all the time. A project manager is a major practical use of time. My project manager was brilliant – she was my builder friend…. she was a sounding board on everything when it came to making decisions.
