Every construction project needs careful planning and execution, even more so when the project is abroad. This can be a big task for an individual. However, an experienced, professional project manager can help you succeed. They can foresee pitfalls, advise on the best route, and manage the process of building your Mallorcan villa from start to finish.
A construction project manager works in their client’s interests. They are there to create a successful build, drawing on their in-depth knowledge. The project manager plans ahead, ideally preventing any issues before they arise, or resolving them promptly when they do.
Your project manager should provide regular reports so that you’re always up to date on your project.
With the best will in the world, construction projects don’t always go as planned. Whether it’s a minor issue with supplier delays or a large issue with planning permits, you need to be sure that problems can be resolved, or even better avoided, successfully.
A project manager knows what to look for. They have experience planning ahead for a range of scenarios and can manage the risks in the project.
A project manager should visit your Mallorcan building site regularly, so they can see what is happening first hand. They can be your eyes on the ground.
This not only means they can properly assess the work, but it also helps them to maintain a good relationship with contractors and answer any queries, optimizing your project.
Time management is an essential part of a project manager’s role. A project manager knows how to keep a project running smoothly and integrate necessary changes, keeping the original scope of work in mind.
Dedicated project managers will also work to your budget, helping you manage costs, keeping you in the loop, and overseeing invoicing.
This then means that you can focus on other aspects of your goals. Whether your Mallorcan villa is an investment opportunity or a family home, hiring a project manager means that you can dedicate your time to the other activities that you need to do to succeed.
A project manager knows what everyone should be doing, and how (to a certain extent at least). They have the technical knowledge to coordinate the site and understand what is needed for specific tasks. So, no matter who is on site, they can help things go to plan.
A local project manager has local contacts, knowledge, and expertise. They can help you find the right builders, source the right designers to suit your tastes, and get estimates as needed through their network of highly skilled tradespeople.
This can save you money and stress, knowing that the right people are on site doing the job for the right price.
Your project manager will be able to show you their previous projects of a similar nature. They should have a good local reputation and be willing to work with you to achieve your vision.
