CLPM support many commercial clients and this is one of several projects we provided construction project management support for our client who owns and runs businesses in Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.
Our client owned and developed industrial units and this was one of several commercial properties we helped him construct near Stroud. This project was a conversion of an industrial unit into a self-storage facility called ‘Stock n Lock’. The project was a 10 week fit out into a series of branded self storage units as well as creating an office for the support staff.
With several construction projects due to be happening at the same time, across Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, our client asked us to give him additional project oversight and to take over the day-to-day management of the works. Our role was as Contract Administrator – to ensure that the construction works were completed on budget, to the correct specification and to schedule. Mario, our Gloucestershire building project manager, oversaw each of the 4 commercial construction projects for our client.
In our role of Contract Administrator Mario liaised with and coordinated the build team to ensure that they built the units according to the contract, and that any issues or changes were dealt with promptly and correctly.
Mario visited the site regularly to inspect the works and sent emails and made phone-calls to keep the project on track. In projects of this nature it’s vital that programmes are adhered to. By chairing regular, minuted progress meetings Mario ensured that the build team were keep on track.
Budgeting is also critical and our QS team and Mario worked together to ensure that all variations were monitored, controlled and reported throughout the build. This gave our clients an additional level of control, and was invaluable, allowing him to make informed financial decisions along the way.
The industrial unit was completed sucessfully and Mario and our QS team we are now working on our 5th construction project with our client.
