There comes a time for many households that the family home becomes just too much of a squeeze. The children themselves may be small but the paraphernalia of modern family life takes up a lot of space!
As a family you have a dilemma – you need more room for your growing numbers but the cost of moving just doesn’t stack up financially. The alternative of trying to manage a home build or house renovation on top of the normal pressures of family life seems just to much.
There is the additional worry of the cost – everyone seems to have a building horror story of ever rising pricing and builders not turning up when required. So what do you do? Try and put up with the space that you have or take a fresh approach to the whole house extension process.
Building works don’t have to be the drain on your time and energy that you fear they may – creating your special home space should be a pleasure not a pain and there is one person who is a key player in your home building team who many people don’t even know exists. You can employ them even before you have your planning permission. This person is your construction project manager.
As Kevin McCloud of Grand Designs fame comments, “The project manager is the most important person to employ after the architect. One individual who takes responsibility for seeing the whole project through from start to finish.”
Employing a construction project manager to co-ordinate your home build will save your sanity, your time and your money. Most importantly, your home build does not need to be “Grand Designs” scale – anyone looking to have a single or double storey extension or loft conversion will benefit from the skills and experience of a project manager.
