Industrial & Commercial
Project management is the discipline of planning, organizing, and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives. It is often closely related to and sometimes conflated with program management
The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honouring the preconceived project constraints. Typical constraints are scope, time, and budget. The secondary and more ambitious challenge is to optimize the allocation and integration of inputs necessary to meet pre-defined objectives
We can provide a general engineering over view of a proposed development with a detailed report outlining key items that may need to be addressed immediately or will affect the works or will cause further unforeseen costs to the project.
We can provide a full detailed design of foul water drainage networks, surface water drainage networks, service ducting networks, water main networks, steelwork, reinforced concrete, foundations, roof timbers, space heating systems, domestic hot water systems and house layouts. We can provide full engineering design back up to any development. All designs take account of health & Safety with special account being taken off build ability and of designing out risk where possible
Construction Drawing Production.
We can produce constructions drawings in AutoCad format including specifications as and when required. We can also up grade existing planning drawings to construction category including the production of extra drawings where required.
Works Programme and Management.
We can develop a works programme detailing key factors that may affect the progress of the works. We can also update these programmes as required to identify delays and critical path items.
Liaison with Architects, Clients, Specialist Consultants, Specialist Contractors & Local Authorities.
We can provide a service where we can liaise with architects, clients, Specialist Consultants, Specialist Contractors and Local Authorities on your behalf with the projects interests to the fore to reduce complications, extra costs and delay.
We can compile a complete construction budget for most projects, including full quantities breakdown and rating. This budget can also be broken down into different elements of the works so that it can tie into a works programme and help in cash flow projections.
We can create a measure for any works carried out including stage payments certificates for works completed. We can also agree measures with main contractor and sub contractors.
Once the construction drawings have been completed, we can prepare tender packages to be tendered by contractors, subcontractors etc. These packages can be prepared as fixed lump sum or bill of quantity packages. We can also assist in the appointment of the main contractor or subcontractor as required.
We can provide a service where we can monitor, control, estimate and project costs including sourcing of quotes for plant, labour, materials, subcontracts, fees etc. With this service we would be able to provide up to date details of the cost and any necessary steps that would be needed to stay within budget.
Green Technologies & Energy Advice
We provide independent advice, details and recommendations in relation to all green technologies from Wind Turbines to Heat Pumps to Solar Panels to Electricity Generation etc. We also provide assistance in the procurement and project management of their supply and installation. We provide details and cost estimates for the ancillary works that are needed for the installation any renewable technology in new or existing developments. We can also provide estimates on costs, predicted payback periods, estimate annual running costs and savings. The use of green technologies needs to be addressed at the very early stages of any new development to ensure all works is in accordance with the necessary requirements for their use. The erection of wind turbines is being encouraged at present in the form of planning exemptions for wind turbine erection. For every 3 kW's of electricity produced at source, the supplier only receives 1 kW, this as a result of loses in the Electricity Supply Network, hence wind turbines are good for the environment and good for the pocket especially where electricity usage is high.
Project Supervisor Design Process
The appointment of a Project Supervisor Design Process and Project Supervisor Construction Stage is a legal requirement in any work site. We provide the Service as Project Supervisor Design Process and also assist in the appointment of Project Supervisor Construction Stage.
