Project Co-ordination

We offer a full project co-ordination service from design to completion.

Communication is the key to a successful project. From the translation of your initial ideas into the design, throughout the build, up to completion and including the supply of the goods, we will guide you through each step of your project.

We have now worked on in excess of one hundred and fifty projects and on each one we have learnt something new, so our knowledge has increased exponentially. Building work is never a comfortable experience but with good project management and careful planning, we try to make it run as smoothly and economically as possible. We don’t, by any means, know everything about refurbishments and renovations but if we don’t have the answers we know someone who does. We work closely with a large network of architects, structural engineers, party wall surveyors, planning consultants, contractors and sub contractors.

We take as much care as we can to help the client with what can be a difficult process, sometimes issues do occur, but we make finding a solution the priority.
As it is essential that you have an informed idea of budgets before beginning any work, we compile a comprehensive specification, this is used as the basis for their contractor tenders.

Timescales are just as important and once the contractor is selected, a schedule is worked out.

As the client, your requirements and desires have to be communicated to the contractors and sub contractors in a form that they can quickly interpret and where there is no room for confusion which is why layouts, lighting and plumbing plans are so important.

From the moment they are appointed, we liaise closely with the contractors and subcontractors.

We are experienced in making applications for planning, building control, listed building consent and local authority grants.

"We are delighted with the way Georgina transformed our town house, both from a design and a project management point of view. The first time we met we were impressed that Georgina was much more concerned with finding out what we wanted rather than talking about herself. We wanted an overall colour scheme for the whole house, and the scope included decorating and carports/flooring/tiling throughout, a new bathroom, a new kitchen and some furniture and joinery. She then came up with her ideas for an overall concept and for some features in the main rooms, and we were delighted - they were very much in tune with what we wanted. At all stages she sought our agreement and let us choose between options she found for us. She then managed the project very effectively: getting quotes from contractors she trusted, letting us choose them, and then managing them. In fact we were able to move out for five of the eight weeks, makings it easier for us and the workers, and Georgina oversaw the work. She kept us updated with item by item costs on an amazing spreadsheet. In the end it was done to a high standard and we are very pleased. Georgina was a joy to work with, with a good sense of humour."
