Building project management

Take the stress away from your project with professional project management done by an experienced team.

Building project management is one of the most complete services we offer in Birmingham, as it helps you really make the most of your new addition from start to finish, without all of the stress that comes with it. CK Architectural Birmingham can help you with construction and building project management no matter the size or the location.

We deal with the entire build at every turn of the process, making sure the work carried out on your property is only the highest quality, using our standards and experience as well as your own, to ensure that nothing goes unnoticed.

The team will manage every single aspect for you, working on tendering the build and picking the perfect builder right through to payment management, quality control, and communication throughout, too, all until we’re ready to hand over the completed project straight to you.

We provide comprehensive advice before any commitment

Adding Control, Organisation and Professionalism to Your Project

The main areas of the building project management with CK Architectural are:

  • Scheduling
  • Costing and Budgeting
  • Payment Control
  • Build Quality Regulation
  • Required Compliances

The team is vastly experienced in each one of these areas, and more than prepared to take every step necessary in making sure that you have the most successful project that you possibly can.

Construction drawings

Initially, we create detailed construction drawings that develop the initial architectural designs in place to apply a practical feel that accounts for any changes that the build presents or any tweaks the builders propose and that you agree with. These technical schematics include the finer points of the build too, like fixtures and fittings, switches, plumbing, and any other detail that needs to be well thought out for a lifelong home improvement or development.

Schedule of works

The schedule of works in our building project management service is designed entirely to add an extra layer of control and precision to the build and ensure that the whole project is as stress free as possible for everyone involved. We lay out every step of the build agreed upon by all parties involved to present a clear and concise plan of what will be occurring throughout the project and when it should be happening. This makes sure there’s no room for disagreement, everyone is on the same page, work is being carried out efficiently and all parties are content. This is also useful if you choose to have elements of the build done by specialists or external parties like familiar workers or trusted tradesmen.

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

Tendering

Once the schedule and the construction drawings are agreed on, it’s then time to issue the drawings to different builders you’re interested in or that we’d recommend undertaking the work. We provide them with all of the information they need directly from ourselves, allowing the builders to provide their own feedback, quotes and information which we can in turn present to you and help you to choose the right workers.

Contract administration

As things progress, our building management service also means that we will administer the contract to all parties and ensure that everyone is on the same page and in agreement with the work that needs to commence. That means reviewing the drawings, schedule of works, quotations and agreeing on all of the above to form a legally protecting contract that all parties can use to ensure the work is undertaken as planned. This also includes insurance details, agreements of working conditions while on site, and a meeting between all parties to ensure that there is no roof for ambiguity.

Site inspections

As the work commences, we will oversee the various stages and plan out key stage meetings with you and your contractor, so nothing is missed. We will endeavour to identify potential problems before they arise and ensure that decisions are made ahead of lead and delivery times. We will visit site and sign off stages before you are asked to make payment offering protection for client and contractor, with regular fortnightly visits

Once all work has been done and agreed upon, it is time to hand over the completed project to you, ready to use and up to scratch. We coordinate the process by checking all statutory requirements have been met, check all required test certificates, and check the work against the drawings and designs to ensure the work has been completed effectively, or create a snagging plan if required which we’ll carry out.

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.
