Project Management - Delivering client expectations
Property Management, Building Consultancy
SHW Building Consultancy provide full Project Management services embracing all types of commercial and residential work. Our focus is on delivering client expectations in a professional, cost-effective and proactive way.
We offer comprehensive project co-ordination from inception to handover including:

- Advising on procurement strategy

- Management of design, tendering and construction process
- Act as link between client and contractor
- Risk management / Health & Safety
- Co-ordinating handover and commissioning
For example, our client at Dean Road, Croydon had obtained planning permission and funding for a residential development so the emphasis was on starting works as soon as possible. We recommended a procurement strategy involving completion of the demolition works while developing the client's brief for the new build works, selecting a design team and preparing a performance specification under a Design and Build package. This enabled works to be tendered quickly whilst providing client certainty on quality and cost.
SHW Building Consultancy oversaw the tender process and following contractor appointment monitored site works dealing with all aspects of contract administration. We provided innovative solutions to unforeseen variations; including proactive management and early redesign of foundation detail due to unexpected ground conditions.
Our Health & Safety Team actively managed risk ensuring all parties complied with statutory requirements. Open communication and team-work ensured client expectations were met. Following successful handover, SHW's Residential Property Management were instructed.
Client Rakesh Patel said: "SHW's management of this project ensured matters were dealt with effectively and professionally. I was very happy with the way works were managed and the high standard to which the build was delivered. I look forward to working with them again in the future".
"Our experience and capability enables us to tailor our services to suit both specific client and project requirements to provide successful delivery." Ryan Carson, Partner, Building Consultancy.
