Project Management Service
Garden Project Management - The Benefits of ProfessionalsSome of customers come to us needing a design for their garden but may want to use their own construction team, one that a neighbour used for example. It is quite common for us to use our expertise to project manage schemes being built by other contractors throughout Kent, Sussex and Surrey – it’s very useful to have the landscape designer on hand to explain any particularly tricky details or construction queries for example.
Garden Project Management - Involvement in Your Garden DesignThe keen eye, and passion, of your garden designer from Openview Landscape Design Ltd could be tricky to replicate for grounds workers; creating a garden can be seen as an artistic involving process where the details really matter! During a project management we like to visit the build on a regular basis, deal with any supplier, material and/or design issues which may arise and hold scheduled meetings with all relevant contractors to make sure the scheme is evolving as you wished, it is after all, your garden!
The exact involvement of your project manager can be decided before any works take place. You may simply want some guidance/management on setting out a landscape design or just a few visits at the beginning, middle and end to provide general help to the construction team. You may however want a more rigorous project management involvement with daily site visits and help in planning continuing works. On a regular basis we undertake:
- Management plans and schedules
- Addressing and negotiating any planning permission issues
- Creating works specifications for tender packs
- Contract management
- Maintenance scheduling and after-care procedures
- Organisation of suppliers and sourcing materials
