Angelique can provide project management for as little or as much of a project as you need. Of course we would prefer to project manage the whole project, from start to finish as then we can guarantee a great result, but we do understand this is not always possible.
You may need us to come into a project after it has started as there may be difficulties found with communication of different contractors, or you just find you don't have the time to project manage, once the project starts and becomes more complex. There may be timing issues, or changes may need to be made to the design because of underground services or unknown materials found making it difficult or impossible to build there.
Sometimes our clients may want to incorporate something new they have seen into the design, so we need to make sure that the design will still work with the new addition. Or there may be other issues with heights and locations of boundaries etc making the design change a little. What ever it is we can be sure to make it work for you and keep the integrity of the design.
We may sometimes have a clear vision from the beginning of how your landscape should look and what purpose it may serve. However, more often this vision will evolve during the design and construction process, so in effect the designing never stops until the final brick is laid, or the last plant planted.
There are many reasons the design may change. Designing is not a linear process, one must often revisit earlier visions of the design to tweak, refine and on occasion scrap and start over. But without this initial design we would not know or understand what our opportunities or limitations were in the first place. The goal is to design something that comes to fruition and becomes a source of pride for the owner.
Project Management becomes an integral part of the design and without this sometimes projects may be found too complex and often if the client does not have the experience to project manage, the projects can be shelved. So it becomes very important that the client does engage us to project manage, because we have the experience and we will work with you and the project until it is finished and you are happy.
During project management we will also sign off Invoices from contractors and make sure the work and the Invoices match up for the client to pay, we will take progress photos, liaise with all contractors, carry out any research if necessary, document work done, prepare reports and keep everyone up to date.
