The landscape design is complete. The plans and construction details have been drafted. The next step is to hire a qualified and competent landscaping contractor, or team of contractors from various trades to install the project.
Whether you are in New Hampshire , Massachusetts, or Maine, this is the phase that can be the most difficult part for a homeowner. Who is a good contractor?What licenses are required? Is this going to stay within budget? This role is best fulfilled by a Landscape Project Manager.
At Terrain Planning & Design we offer Project Management Services that can assist the client in, bid administration and solicitation, contractor selection, project scheduling, and oversight of construction activities.
As landscape architects, we are experienced in all stages of landscape and site construction projects. With the “big picture” in mind, we bring our industry knowledge and experience to the table while with working with contractors in all types of trades. As project managers, we represent you-the client-during each and every phase of construction.
For example: You have worked with Terrain Planning & Design to create a plan for your dream backyard space which includes; a swimming pool, water feature, and large outdoor kitchen space. For a project like this there will need to be approximately 7 different trades represented to complete the various elements of the design. Who will be responsible for coordinating all of their work schedules, deliveries, material storage on site, workmanship, and request for payment?
As a project manager representing the interests of the client, we are able to facilitate the entire project start to finish. We can inspect the quality of the work being done, answer any questions that may come up and keep track of the project budget and schedule.
Having a project manager on your side during even the smallest construction project will not only assure that the project is implemented as it was designed, but it will make the operation more efficient and save you money.
