The Vital importance of Expert Project Management
Approved Shopfitting & Interiors are providers of superior shopfitting and refurbishment throughout the whole of the UK. As one of the country’s foremost specialist interior companies, we design, create, deliver and project manage exclusive, top-quality bespoke projects across a wide range of different sectors.
No matter what we’re doing, however, there is one thing that is more important to us than any other, and that is delivering to the client the vision that they began with. This means that from the very beginning we make it our business to get to know you, to understand what makes you tick and to really share your vision, so that we can then get to work reproducing it for you.
A large part of what we do involves close collaboration with the finest architects and interior designers. From the original concept to the grand unveiling, we take care of all of the details, managing the whole process and all of the different craft and tradespeople involved, every step of the way.
The importance of project management training
Project management is a huge part of what we do and is absolutely integral to the success of the whole process. We take the project when it’s still a plan in the client’s mind or on a scrap of paper, and we do everything that needs to be done to turn that vision into reality.
Also, when we say we know how to manage a project, we don’t just mean that we learned to do it as we went along. In actual fact, a large part of our team are very highly trained and qualified project management specialists with NVQ Level 7’s under their belt
At Approved, we know how important it is to use the best, most highly skilled and conscientious staff, so we make sure that all of our team are up-to-date with the most recent training, covering Site Supervisor and Site Management Safety, Site Environmental Awareness and all of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health and Health and Safety Authority regulations and recommendations. We monitor our staff training very closely and have a comprehensive set of records about who has had what training, the dates they were completed, and planned training for the future. We have become renowned for our attention to detail and this is something that we are committed to internally within our organisation as well as externally with our clients.
The importance of effective project management
Unlike some other companies that bandy around ‘project management’ claims like they mean nothing, we take it seriously. And we know that the project cannot be successfully delivered without effective project management. We also know that effective project management comes down to realistically planning, constantly monitoring and rigorously controlling the entire process, which means:
* making sure from the beginning that we understand the client’s requirements fully
* allocating the right resources in response to the client’s brief
* presenting, agreeing and monitoring costs and budgets throughout the project
* identifying and sticking to key project milestones
* ensuring that effective channels of communication are in place throughout
Having a team of expert project managers in-house enables us to draw from a pool of highly talented, highly qualified professionals, each of whom can help pinpoint the quickest, most efficient and most cost-effective way of making your dream into a reality.
