Building project management

Our building & construction project management service is quickly becoming highly sought after with our clients in Bristol & Bath who simply wish for an experienced professional to take control and run the project on their behalf.

No matter what your project, the management of the build is always one of the most daunting and stressful processes that people tend to go through. There’s a huge amount of time, effort and money on the table, and for what is such as important part of people’s lives, it really can take a toll. This is where the CK Architectural Project Management Service can be the perfect solution for the whole build.

We work with you and with the builders involved to ensure only the highest quality work is carried out, by managing every single step of the project right until the point of completion where we’ll hand the reigns back over to you.

We provide comprehensive advice before any commitment

The main goals of project management are controlling and organising

  • Programme
  • Cost
  • Payment control
  • Build quality
  • Ensure required compliances

The project management service begins when the planning and building regulations stages finish, and whether that is through the services of CK Architectural or any other firm, we can take on almost any project in the Bristol and Bath areas.

Delivery of the agreed programme cost and quality to the agreed scope of works is vital to a successful project, and we provide the following items which assist in achieving the objectives.

Project being built

Construction drawings

Once you have planning and building regulations approval, the first stage of the project management process is to create working drawings or construction drawings. These are detailed drawings that highlight the more detailed aspects of your build, such as fixtures and fittings. All of this can be used by your builder to carry out the most accurate build without issue and make sure you’re getting accurate and reliable quotes from the builders who can work on your project.

Schedule of works

Working with the builder, we develop a schedule of works to ensure that the builder and the client are understanding of what is to be expected and when. This not only helps you to prepare for the easiest living situations throughout the build but also to set exclusion zones where required and generally ensure that progress is being made and the right standard, preventing any wasted time or money.

From basic design to full project management,  you can tailor your service to you

Tendering

The first part of the construction itself comes from tendering the project. We work with you to carefully handpick builders for the work, as well as vetting them with you to ensure only the perfect workers are used for the job. This takes away the worry and concern over poor quality or cowboy builders and adds that extra layer of protection to your project.

Contract administration

Following strict industry practises, we also administer contracts to all parties involved in the build to ensure there is a clear and detailed contract to protect everyone’s interests. This is where working conditions, payment, and any other detail is discussed and agreed to, preventing any issues down the line, or to cover you if they should occur for any reason without question.

Site inspections

In order to make sure the work being done is carried out to the highest quality possible, we also perform regular frequent site checks and inspect the quality of work. This prevents any build up of issues and makes sure that any problems are dealt with in a timely fashion that doesn’t become a headache for you later on down the line.

Once the project comes to a close, our role is to ensure it is ready to hand back to you when it is actually ready to use. We curate a handover process working with you and your builder, where we’ll check for all the necessary paperwork and certificates, check the whole build and log any snags that need to be rectified, and initiate a 3 month defect period where you can get any additional snags you find repaired as you use the build.

Project management can bring many benefits to your build which include saving you time, stress and money. We can achieve this as we bring to the project:

  • Our expertise and experience
  • Become a single point of contact for the build.
  • Improve the efficiency of the project
  • Ensure good communication throughout the project
  • Control costs, programme and quality.

Our fee for project management is based upon time during the project but as guidance, it is approximately 5% of the build cost.

Highly recommend CK Architectural. Chris and his team did a great job gaining planning permission for a new build and renovation of an existing property. We hit some dead ends with the planning officer but Chris found different ways of getting around the problems without going over budget.

For someone far removed from the building / planning industries the thought of where to start when thinking of a big extension project to my house (two story to the side and wrap around of semi-detached 3 bed) was a little daunting at first. Luckily, after obtaining a competitive quote, I enlisted the services of CK Architectural and have been very impressed with not only the service received but the ease at which they have made the whole process. After listening to my thoughts and the reasons for needing the extension work doing, the architect came up with a great design that encompassed everything that was needed. Even when I changed my mind over a couple of aspects, Donna, Chris and the team were quick to administer any alterations. Every visit to the house for measurements / planning etc has happened without a hitch with all members of the team we've encountered being punctual and professional at all times. The best thing has been by far the ease at which CK have made of getting all council and local authority sign off for the project. All I have needed to do is pay the fees at the required time, no stress involved and all went through seamlessly. I'm now at the stage where I have the drawings to hand and have submitted them to builders to obtain quotes. Importantly, the feedback so far from the builders indicates the project to be within the budget specifications I explained to CK during the first consultation. Very happy customer 🙂 Carl.

Excellent Service and prompt!! I have taken CK's service twice. Chris and his team is very helpful and most importantly have enough patience to accommodate my frequently changing mind set. I would happily recommend any one to CK Architectural and wish them all the best.
