Our clients receive a dedicated service that spans the development phase from feasibility and planning appraisals, construction programming and methodology, through to the procurement and post contract management of professional design teams and contractors.
We offer the following tailor made services to both public and private clients in a variety of sectors including education, retail, office, refurbishment, residential, leisure and fit out.
We have extensive experience in programme management for higher education clients on linked programmes of work and masterplanning. In addition we have individual experience of managing multi-facetted roll out programmes in commercial environments. We have the experience and skill sets to undertake portfolio, programme and project management commissions.
The core aspect of the pdcm business has always focused on high quality independent project management. We have an enviable track record in managing major schemes in varying sectors and can include high profile arts, higher education, residential, retail and commercial schemes in our portfolio of completed projects. We remain committed to a culture of continuous improvement.
Put simply it is the “d” in pdcm, and is one of the central tenets in our business philosophy. Through our combined backgrounds we understand the importance of managing design, whether programme, value, or buildability, and we will fully consider all aspects of the process to ensure that paths are set to embark on a problem free project delivery.
“The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise…” (Sir John Harvey Jones)
At pdcm we recognise the need to plan properly to avoid any pitfalls, or failings in service, for our clients. Our team of experienced managers are trained in programming and logistics management to deliver our service.
We are well placed to undertake monitoring and due diligence roles for our clients. Our all-round “poacher turned gamekeeper” approach to managing projects gives us a unique insight into the application of process and procedure to reach the successful completion of each project.
Cost and Value Management
We are committed to ensuring that our clients obtain the best value possible on their projects. Our team are experienced in commercial delivery of projects and we strive to question, and question again, design concepts to achieve appropriate value for money in the scheme. Together with change control and quality control this forms part of the fundamental control series of our management techniques.
Construction Support Services
Most of our team have held senior positions within prominent main contracting organisations and are therefore well placed to offer advice on and support in connection with the introduction of robust ‘day-to-day’ processes and procedures, as well as senior management services.
Our mix of differing professional disciplines gives us an exceptional focus in managing disputes on projects. We have a range of communication and negotiation skills that give us a sound platform to enable resolution of conflicts on any project.
