Project Management

People getting things done

Project Management explained…

In its most basic form Project Management is about people getting things done. As a result, effective teamwork is central to successful projects.

Projects need to be controlled to meet their objectives and deliver benefits, and these objectives are usually defined in terms of expectations of time, cost and quality.

Why a Project Manager?

At Sykes & Co. we provide turnkey project support services because we understand that the everyday demands of your lives doesn’t allow for the challenges and complexities that inevitably arise with property development and construction. Our support services remove the daily minutiae of project co-ordination from your schedule allowing you to focus on your core business whilst we keep you abreast of key issues throughout the process.

We take care of the concept development, construction process and purchasing right through to the final finishing touches of your project. We ensure that your build is delivered on time, on budget and meets all the necessary building regulations and quality standards.

At Sykes & Co. we believe that the key to success is planning so in addition, and in order to ensure success, we also offer a process management system.

This system empowers our clients and allows them to make definitive decisions. Essentially we provide the supporting framework and body of knowledge to ensure that you make the right decisions, saving you time and cost overall.

We also ensure that the ramifications of each of your decisions are fully understood in terms of value and risk. In other words what is more important to you cost, quality or time. This is particularly important for larger scale commercial and residential projects.
