Project Management

The success of a building project is measured by it meeting a number of criteria including timing, cost, quality and suitability; project management is the assumption of responsibility for co-ordinating a building project in the context of these key criteria, with a level of intervention to suit circumstances.   The role is contingent on many factors, including the degree of expertise within the client organisation, but is largely one of managing the planning and implementation of building works through the provision of independent technical advice.

The project management role is usually independent of the professional team responsible for design and procurement of the scheme, but will frequently extend to fulfilling the role of contract administrator, which involves preparing the design and specification for the works, seeking competitive tenders and overseeing their implementation.

Stewart Watson regularly fulfils the project management and contract administration role for a wide range of clients with a particular emphasis on refurbishment of commercial buildings.
