Bespoke project management
For professional supervision of your construction, Karenna Wilford Architects offer a bespoke project management service. This provides you with quality management and helps ensure a smooth construction which gives value for money. It reduces your workload and makes it easier to choose the exact fixtures and fittings that will add so much to your property.
This service involves:
Arranging for individual building trades people rather than a single contractor to provide quotations for the required works.
Checking and qualifying competitive quotes, providing a spreadsheet showing the various trades and overall sum for building works.
Programming the building works and ensuring that sub-contractors attend at the appropriate time
Allowing clients the flexibility to choose their own fixtures and fittings if they want and making sure they are ordered and delivered to site on a timely basis.
Checking invoices and arranging payments of trades people and materials.
Keeping accounts of expenditure for the overall project.
Visiting site on a regular basis to ensure that work is completed to a high standard.
"Having decided to work with an architect for the first time on our extensive building project, we are delighted with Karenna’s professionalism, eye for detail, organisation and guidance in keeping us to our budget. We have done a lot of building projects where costs and time frames have spiralled out of control. We would highly recommend Karenna’s input and reassurance in keeping control and helping with the challenges that inevitably occur."
Obtaining competitive quotes from suitable contractors
The work of obtaining competitive quotes and assessing them for suitability and cost is vital in obtaining value for your construction work. It also allows for the selection of a range of sub-contractors with expertise in different areas. For example, this lets you incorporate bespoke landscape or interior design within the project. It means you can relax and is particularly helpful if you are living away from the development.
