Why do you need a Project Manager?

In a recent report released by McKinsey, large capital projects typically take 20% longer to finish and are up to 80% over budget (McKinsey, 2018). Engaging a Development Manager to manage and oversee your building project will mitigate the potential risks of blowing out your budget and running overtime. Don’t leave the success of your project to chance – engage an experienced company that has the comprehensive services that will help you deliver on your goals. 

We are able to offer project services at any stage, however, we believe that development management, as opposed to the more traditional role of project management, provides our clients with additional value. Development Management provides earlier engagement and a more holistic approach to providing advice and support from project inception through to completion, which greatly helps to minimise the potential risks identified above.

With the constantly changing regulations and legislation landscape, you need to have your finger on the pulse and have a deep understanding of Building Codes to ensure a smooth project execution and delivery – and to avoid costly delays.
