Timescales for a completed Project
For any building project , there are quite a number of preparations that need to be done, according to the client’s timescale.
We allocate each project two project Managers who look after the job from start to finish and work directly with clients, architects, suppliers and all the trades.
Various tasks are dependent on the completion of a number of other tasks, which form a task chain called a critical path. For any successful project, a critical path must be followed alongside the client’s needs; all of which can determine the completion date and the timescale of the project.
Clients always want their projects to start immediately and sometimes; the projects have a very limited timescale according to their wishes. While this is not impossible for us, it could cause a lot of disturbance to the client, as we may require to consult with the client on every task we undertake. A longer timescale gives our experts enough time to plan for the renovation project and coordinate the delivery with little disturbance on the clients. In the event that a client offers us a short timescale for their project, our experts will do their best to deliver quality work within the stated timescale.
Steps We Take to Plan and Deliver any Renovation Project.
Before we deliver any project, we first need to plan for it. This may take up a lot of time as we integrate all tasks and critical paths into a series of events. Proper planning helps us achieve a coordinated delivery within the client’s timescale. The preparation process is dependent on the client’s given timescale. A short timescale requires less time planning and more time building unlike a longer timescale, which requires more time planning and less time building.
The planning process breaks down the project into different events and our experts identify the critical path in each event for easier execution of the project. We need time to compile procurement schedules, coordinate tradesmen, and to plan our site works.
After successfully planning for a renovation project to fit the client’s timescale, we then start our site works immediately. Adequate planning will reduce confusion on our site works, as every critical path is clearly mapped out. We then deliver quality work to our clients.

Design and Planning
This is the most important part of the project and may take up a lot of time if planning permission is required. More than 10 weeks may be spent on submitting the planning permission and obtaining one. Here is the breakdown of the timescale needed for the planning process.
