Our core architectural work and role as Lead Consultant give us a unique overview of what it takes to design, manage and deliver construction projects. We understand what makes a project successful from the points of view of different stakeholders, whether it be client satisfaction against benchmarked standards or completion on time and budget. The inherent skills of an architect are typical of those required of a good Project Manager and at DKA we are able to transfer our skill sets as architects and Lead Consultants to deliver project management services to clients. We do this by applying focused methodology and extending our comprehensive management and control procedures to deliver value added services to clients..
We recognise the specific role of a Project Manager, and believe that successful project management is about more than developing project execution plans or completing change control documents. For a project to be successful, interpersonal relationships are crucial and contribute towards the creation of an environment within which all team members can achieve shared project goals. A good Project Manager should not ask anything of their team that they are not prepared to do themselves and they should at all times have a detailed understanding of all project issues and actions. The success of a project can depend on the project managers ability to understand the process at all scales and to guide the project team through the creation of a proactive team environment.
At DKA we have the knowledge and skills to ensure your project is a success no matter the size or challenge. So, whether you are a client looking for a Project Manager to lead your project from inception to completion; require someone to fulfil the role of Design Manager for you; or you just require someone to provide advice and guidance, please contact DKA to find out how we can tailor a service to meet your project needs.
