The Importance of Project Management when Building


When it comes to a building restoration, it is important that everything is planned out correctly to ensure the job is completed on time and within budget. Too often, clients pay good money for building services that don’t meet expectation, or worse, don’t comply with Australian building regulations, which could end up costing you more than what you budgeted for.

Australia has some of the toughest building codes and regulations in the world. If you’re planning a new building restoration or shop fit out, it is vital that you have a qualified and experienced project manager onsite to ensure safety regulations are maintained and compliant.

The role of a project manager is to oversee the project from the initial planning stage, including:

  • Contacting the local council and authorities

  • Obtaining permits

  • Assembling the right contractors and tradespeople

  • Organising and supplying the materials and equipment and

  • Ensuring that the project stays within budget until the job is complete.

A good project manager understands the building industry and is committed to the project that they are in charge of. As well as their technical understanding, project managers abide by the jurisdiction of the state when overseeing a building site. They do background checks on all contractors employed for the job and will put someone on notice if work is not carried out thoroughly and legally. As a paying customer, you want the work to be of the highest standard and not have to worry about possible legal implications as a result of negligent contractors.
