Effective project management can help you achieve even the most demanding property objectives.
Our project management services are designed to help you navigate the physical and financial elements of a property move or transaction by allocating the resources required, co-ordinating the different parties involved and managing the risks.
This means you can be in control and get the best out of the specialists in your project team, allowing them to concentrate on their individual areas of expertise to help accomplish your objectives.
Who should use our project management services?Commercial tenants or occupiers considering any of the following:
• new build – from planning and construction through to occupancy
• refurbishment – including repairs, alterations, extensions and improvements
• relocation and fit-out – adapting the working environment, often as a catalyst for change
• ‘re-stacking’ in occupation – major phased programmes requiring a migration strategy to keep the business operating whilst work is carried out.
• new ways of working/innovative occupancy - for more information, see Interior Design.
