Managing your self-build project is a full-time job which requires extensive industry knowledge and understanding. Unless you have the time and knowledge to manage your build yourself, appointing a professional project manager is the best option. Complete project management for new builds is something Elite Building & Refurbishment undertakes, ensuring we construct your home on time, within budget and to the highest quality.
Read our guide to our project management service for new build homes in Tonbridge, Maidstone and the nearby areas to discover why professional management is the right option for your project.
The main job of a project manager is to deliver builds within the agreed budget and time parameters, to specifications and to the expected quality. To achieve this, we take on a range of tasks and apply various skills. Some of the main duties we undertake when managing new builds in the Tonbridge and Maidstone areas include:
Creating work schedules.
Troubleshooting and problem solving.
Overseeing and checking work, progress and quality.
Overseeing health and safety on site and ensuring work meets building regulations.
Liaison with clients, neighbours, suppliers, contractors, building control etc.
Appoint contractors, suppliers and services and deciding when they need to be on site.
Negotiate pricing and discounts as well as managing costs and budgets.
General management of the build and everyone on site.
This all requires an excellent understanding of construction and finance, which Elite Building & Refurbishment delivers, drawing on our professional trading history and experience of over 20 years. Furthermore, because we offer a comprehensive range of building services through our in-house team and dedicated network of industry professionals, we have no problem sourcing the best contractors, services or materials for your project.
Although it is common for self-builders to try and save money on new builds by managing the project themselves, there are many benefits to professional project management. Firstly, managing a build is a big commitment, so unless you can be on site every day for at least a large portion of the day, you should hire a project manager, otherwise problems can quickly arise and build up.
