Build Project Management – Working with Surveyors, Architects and Structural Engineers
Build or construction project management deals with the planning, coordination, and execution of the construction of a building project. Depending on the type of project, it usually involves complicated tasks which may change when least expected.
Due to this, construction project management requires strong communication skills and vast knowledge of the processes involved in building. We provide these services for your construction project.
We will provide you with the services of a surveyor, architect, and structural engineer. These professionals will ensure your project is well taken care of from start to finish. Let’s review their roles and how to incorporate their services into one project.
Surveyors examine construction sites before the construction has begun. They estimate property boundaries to avoid legal disputes and measure the land’s depth and shape. They then map the area.
They report their findings to the client. This information is used by the architect and structural engineer to make necessary preparations for the construction process.
The surveyor will provide the engineer with information on the land’s topography so that the engineer can account for the land’s imperfections during construction. The surveyor also relays to the construction crew the land’s boundaries and GPS coordinates.
The surveyor also enforces the engineer’s plans accurately and makes sure they are carried out down to the centimetre. They constantly monitor the process to ensure that construction is within the allocated boundaries.
Architects are responsible for building designs and developing their concepts and structures into images and plans. They create the overall look of a building by formulating its appearance and functionality of the spaces within.
Residential architects estimate the amount of time construction will take place from start to finish, as well as the costs of the materials and services. They discuss the requirements and the budget for the project with the client. They specify the space requirements of the house by researching how many people will be occupying the building, then preparing drawings and a report of the findings to the client.
After discussing the initial proposal, they come up with detailed final construction plans. These plans may include drawings of the ventilation systems, structural systems, electrical systems, plumbing, and landscaping plans. The plans also specify building materials, interior furnishings in some cases, fire regulations, zoning laws, and building codes including those that allow access for people with disabilities.
They are responsible for the design of the building. They also oversee the activity of the construction project and the activities undertaken by the surveyor and structural engineer and their teams.
Structural engineers are concerned with the designing and construction of buildings that are safe and stable enough to withstand the elements. Their functions include:
- Calculating loads and stresses
- Obtaining approval for planning and building regulations
- Monitoring and inspecting construction work which is undertaken by the contractors
- Preparing reports and designs
- Choosing the construction material to be used
- Liaising with architects, surveyors, and relevant professionals
- Inspection of the building’s foundation and structural integrity
They ensure the construction is built according to the regulations and specifications of the client and work in tandem with the surveyor’s and the architect’s plans.
Our team of professionals will build your dream home
Our skilled team consists of these professionals who will help you plan and carry out the construction of your dream home. Their roles might be different, but they overlap and use each other’s expertise to enable the project to be carried out effectively.
The surveyor will be concerned with the value of your land and how it will be used. The architect will be concerned with the project in terms of its aesthetics while the structural engineer is concerned with the building’s strength and stability. Contact us for more information.
