The ultimate result of our design work is to see it realised on the ground. In landscape led projects we have often acted in the role of project manager and contract administrator overseeing the construction phase through to completion.
This involves attending / organising formal meetings in set intervals along the contracts life. A pre-construction meeting is organised to establish contacts, work plans, timetables and any other business necessary to allow the work to begin. Progress meetings are then organised frequently throughout the contract to gauge the progress of the work and resolve any issues that have occurred. Once completed the site is inspected and any snagging is highlighted for addressing when possible. This process takes a formal approach and certificates and reports are produced throughout the process. Tight budgets are kept and invoices are released once the certificates are signed.
