Project Management

Vickery Holman work closely with clients throughout the whole development process, from initial concept design and specification to managing the contract through to completion. 

Project Management services our process

The building surveying team, located across our four offices in the south west, undertake due diligence project monitoring for funders on a range of new build and refurbishment projects ranging from fruit processing facilities, large scale housing developments, prestige single dwelling and conversion and refurbishment of listed buildings.

The initial reporting exercise reviews all construction related aspects of the proposed scheme including planning consent, technical reports, build cost information & programme, the professional team, procurement method and the form of contract and proposals for collateral warranties.

The resulting Risk Schedule provides a quick reference status report for the principal project elements and is updated as the project progresses and further detailed information becomes available.

Interim reports are provided on a monthly basis following site meetings with the project team and inspection of works.

We work with structural, mechanical and electrical engineers to ensure designs are buildable, sustainable and visually appealing. 

Project Management

Vickery Holman undertake the project management of schemes, providing services tailored to suit the client’s requirements. This can be provision of a full in-house service, whereby Vickery Holman will employ and be responsible for sub-consultants, such as mechanical, electrical and structural engineers. Alternatively, we can undertake the design and project management in liaison with client directly employed consultant engineers, or the client’s in-house engineers. 

Vickery Holman can also undertake pure project management: providing project management as a stand-alone service with no other design involvement. We would provide the professional advice and management of the design team on behalf of the client.

We are familiar with both the Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) and NEC suite of building contracts.
