Appoint a Specialist Project Leader Who Works Only for the Client
Fitting out and designing new offices is always a stressful endeavour, which is why you need to make sure that the right independent expert is appointed to oversee the project and ensure a turn key solution is delivered according to the budget and timeline that you have allocated.
Typically, the responsibilities of overseeing the creation of a new office may fall to a facilities manager or director, or perhaps an appropriately skilled director or senior manager in the organisation. However, it may be impossible to find someone in the company with the skills, experience or the time to assume responsibility for the project, which is where independent project leaders come in.
What to look for in an independent project leader
Having a dedicated representative to oversee your project means that you can rest assured that someone with professional expertise will be handling your needs and producing results. A good project leader is one who has had prior experience of turnkey projects and solutions along with deep understanding of all the regulations and requirements that need to be followed in order to ensure that everything is ethically managed.
Also equally as important is the need to choose a project leader who is committed to and comfortable with familiarising themselves with your organisation, somebody who is able to clearly communicate with senior management, employees and key stakeholders. They must respect and be devoted to understanding every aspect of the business when it comes to operations and processes, so that they can provide relevant recommendations on the construction side of office fit-outs. You want them to maintain and enhance productivity and efficiency — rather than making things worse!
Engaging an independent project leader that you can rely on to provide costings and schedules that are realistic, reasonable and — above all else — achievable is critical to the success of the project. In simple terms, your success depends on them.
