At Style Plus Renovations North Shore Auckland, we see a project management plan as one potential pathway to a successful project outcome. 

There will always be factors, some unknown, that influence that plan. Issues, changes, and variations typically will arise during a renovation, and we can only plan against so much risk. Therefore, the plan is as critical as the need to adjust it as we progress with the project

We provide a full project management service looking after your entire renovation or new custom-build project for you. From the onset of the project, our project managers use their experience and skills to set realistic expectations. 

Using our cloud-based project software we ensure all aspects of the job stay on track. As a homeowner you can access your project information using our system, therefore, you will always know exactly what’s going on.

Those who plan do better than those who do not plan, even though they rarely stick to their plan.

How can I keep my project on budget and on time?

There are a few steps you can take early on in the building process to combat your build going over budget and over the time frame. These are things like:

  • Hiring a construction company with full-service project management services that will be able to help keep your costs down.
  • Try making all major decisions as early as possible to keep unforeseen costs to a minimum and plan as realistically as possible allowing for contingency just in case.
  • Decide on a baseline budget early on in the planning stage.
  • Document the scope of the project before you start.
  • Identify your red flags early on in the planning stage.
  • Using a good quality certified builder to build your project right the first time.
  • Setting goals within realistic timelines.
