Project Management

Historically, architects, engineers, and master builders organized and managed construction projects. Since the 50’s, the industry changed and companies began applying specific tools and techniques to make complex engineering projects easier to manage.

What exactly is Project Management? The definition of Project Management is “the practice of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria at the specified time.” What does that mean for construction? One by one:

  • Initiating: once we get a call from a prospective client, we take the first steps to understand your needs and construct an initial cost and plan.
  • Planning: we work closely with our clients to plan everything from the architectural design to the interior design.
  • Executing: once our clients sign off on our plan, we begin executing immediately to ensure we stay on track towards our proposed deadline.
  • Controlling: we maintain full oversight and exercise complete control over our projects. We strive to strike a balance between controlling every aspect and putting trust in our subcontractors to do the job right.
  • Closing: When the time comes and our clients are satisfied with their final product, we gain pleasure from watching the happiness on their faces!

Modern project management has various approaches: phased approach, lean, iterative, critical chain, product-based, and the list goes on! We take a standard, no-nonsense approach. We make sure your needs are met, the plan is agreed upon between us and the client and we execute making sure everyone involved is accountable.

What is Your Experience With Overseeing Large Projects?
Our last two projects are great success stories. First, we designed and built a commercial space call District off of Armour Drive in Atlanta. We also designed and built a multi-bed, multi-bath home in a community called Cuscowilla. We’ve tackled numerous large-scale commercial projects. See those on our Public Assembly page.
What Would You Do If Your Project Fell Behind Schedule or Went Over Budget?
Our policy is communication: early and often. If we begin to fall behind, we communicate with the involved parties to work out a solution. If a solution cannot be easily achieved, we communicate the challenges to our clients and work out a course of action together.
What is your project management style?
We like to keep full control over every aspect of our projects among every team. However, we understand that micro-management will hurt everyone involved. Our goal is aimed at striking a balance between controlling every aspect and putting trust in our subcontractors to do the job right.
What Size and Type of Projects Have You Built?
We’ve done it all. From a small renovation of a home to a large full-scale commercial space; we can handle it. We pride ourselves on being subject-matter experts as tradesmen and communicative-experts as managers. We never back down from a challenge we can handle!
