Project Management for House extension project

Our project management services cover the whole project, from inception to completion. We treat each project as unique and we maintain momentum, which we see as two of the keys to project success. London Art Construction and Design helps clients to maintain control of every aspect — quality, cost, programme, delivery and safety.


Why hire a project manager for your home renovation or extension?


Given the cost of a home renovation project it is hardly surprising that people look at where to save money. While few people would attempt to build their own extension, many decide they can do without a project manager and instead attempt to coordinate the works themselves. Most of us know when we need a professional plumber or electrician but I suspect fewer people understand what a project manager does.


Coordinating the timing and phasing of the project


A project manager is responsible for managing the timing and phasing of the project. As anyone who has had any building work done knows, projects rarely run to schedule and unexpected problems often arise. A good project manager will spot potential problems early and will make sure things go as smoothly as possible. Many delays and cost increases are caused by clients changing their mind part way through the build process. A project manager will help manage this change process.

SAMPLE DRAFT PROGRAMME




Managing trades


A project manager should ensure trades, such as carpenters, plumbers, electricians, are brought in at the right time. Having a project manager should take away the hugely time consuming and stressful role of managing multiple tradespeople. It should make the project much more efficient, and less expensive in the long run.


Overseeing contracts and health and safety


No one should ever employ a builder without having a contract in place. Many home renovation projects will need a number of professionals – perhaps an engineer, architect, electrician and plumber – each needing a contract. A good project manager will work with a specialist construction lawyer such as myself to ensure appropriate contracts are in place. A project manager will also tell you what your health and safety responsibilities are. All of this support takes pressure off you and makes the project far less risky and stressful.
