Project Management

On time, on budget, driven by data. Every real estate and workplace project we undertake is different, but these three factors are always the same.

As previous in-house directors, we know exactly what makes a project successful, and what doesn’t. We also understand how pivotal projects can be to the dynamic of an organisation. We’re able to share our knowledge through the entire process and work with, or on behalf, of your business to get the results you need.

Let us understand your objectives and assess the risks and opportunities. Let us design and budget for the project and get the best possible delivery team on board. Let us make sure it’s all done to regulations, and let us use data at every stage to meet your goals.

We can offer:

  • Project appraisal and feasibility study, business justification and approvals
  • Real estate, workplace and facilities project delivery
  • Portfolio health-check programmes (align footprint with business need)
  • Business capacity planning – scenario modelling and costing
  • Built environment and workplace project management, from budgeting through delivery and analysis.

And that’s not all. Get in touch to find out how we can help you.

Project Management: Manchester Relocation

Our client is a UK building services company which due to ongoing expansion were looking to relocate to larger premises in Manchester.

Although our client has the skills to deliver this project, they recognised that an internal project manager would need to politically satisfy internal stakeholders which could be time consuming and delay the outcome.

Director Group was asked to review their workplace strategy and prepare a brief, identifying their location needs, capital budgets and site selection criteria. We undertook a detailed search across the market and analysed all options achieving a short-list of opportunities. These were presented with negotiated lease-terms, capital fit-out plans and budgets, together with operational costs across all option.

Having established a good working relationship with the client we went onto manage the fit-out design and tender process, through to overseeing the project delivery and relocation.
