Taking on a big project, such as a commercial refurbishment, can hold the promise of big rewards, but also means taking on big risks. Many people believe that the success or failure of a project is down to chance and luck. However, this is far from the truth. The reality is that the success of any project is brought about through an integrated process of project creation, effective planning, well timed execution, strong supervision and control, and targeted evaluation at the end. There are many different methodologies of project management, but they all offer the same benefits, which include:
- efficient completion of the project
- the ability to scope and plan for possible changes during the project
- stability throughout the project, as even if the staff involved change, the plan does not
- improved quality of the project outcomes
- clear chains of command and authority, so everyone knows who is responsible for what
- using a project manager is likely to cost less than failure of the project would cost, so it can be a great investment.
Project management is vital to all kinds of projects, whether large or small. Many businesses find that when they’re undertaking a business expansion or commercial refurbishment, that they benefit from hiring in the expertise of an external project manager. At Interior Concepts, we offer a full project management service to all sizes of business, helping you to achieve your goals on schedule, within budget and to the highest possible standards.
When you first take us on, we will sit down with you to discuss your vision and hopes for the project, in order to clarify exactly what you want to do, and why you want to do it. We will then draw up a project plan which ensures every task is carried out in the right way and in the correct sequence. At this point we will discuss costs with you and are able to commit to a fit-out cost even at this early stage. This gives you the peace of mind that there will be no hidden extras or nasty surprises along the way. We will even apply for any necessary planning permissions or registrations on your behalf.
We’ll monitor the progress of your project through proven methods, which include full health and safety policies and procedures, full documentation and detailed planning of all costs and tasks involved. We can give you regular updates on the progress of your refurbishment, to continue keeping your mind at rest that everything is proceeding in accordance with the plan. While the refurbishment is ongoing we can also provide additional services such as temporary office relocation, if you require it.
