Residential Project Management
STEP 3 of our system is the Residential Project Management Package
Choosing to engage our Project Management Team to oversee your project during the build phase, will provide you with dedicated professionals who will help make the construction of your project smooth and hassle free. Our Project Managers maintain a current builders license and continual professional development. They are genuine, invested and extremely experienced at management and communication and importantly are all-round great guys.
Your project manager will work with you and your builder to ensure best practices and outcomes. You will receive clear, expert and objective advice. An onsite, weekly meeting is conducted by your project manager with the builder, and it is suggested the client attend where possible. The meeting is minuted and site photos are taken to ensure that any issued are readily addressed and remain in focus until resolved. With skilled communications and hands on industry knowledge, the Project Manager’s role is to act as the conduit between the client and the builder, provide you with informed independent advice, offer assistance with financial management and documentation, ultimately ensuring the contractual documents are correctly administered and the construction timeline is maintained.
Challenges can arise during a construction period, knowing how to handle them in a timely manner can save you time and money. Where it is unusual, should issues with neighbours arise our project managers are experienced in problem resolution to avoid any situation escalating unnecessarily. Working with our project management team will offer you peace of mind and guarantee you the highest quality of service and advice.

“Essentially the combination of The Site Foreman’s wealth of building industry knowledge, their supplier contacts and the careful project management of our renovation has resulted in a brand new home that we love.”
“Of everybody we dealt with during the planning and building of our extensions, the only people that were 100% reliable and were the best value for money was The Site Foreman. Any person who says they don’t need a project manager hasn’t used one; they also saved us thousands of dollars.”
