Project Management 

"Quality is never an accident, it is always the result of intelligent effort" 
How many times have you seen or heard of projects going over budget. This is simply down to poor cost planning. At Design Appeal we believe no matter how simple or complex your project is, it is a vital ingredient to identify the anticipated build cost for the design. This provides a firm platform whereby your design can go out to market for pricing, or what better to use our preferred contractor who will work to the provided cost line. When producing the build costs of your design we can also ensure provisional allowances for those lifestyle items that make your design unique to you. Through our preferred supplier list and wealth of partners in the industry, we are able to facilitate a complete project management service, providing you peace of mind and seamless operation from the design right through to completion. 
We take time to understand your needs, wants and wishes and by working closely together, the designers and the supply chain, we can deliver real value for money. It's a collaborative approach that ensures that clients get the best whole life value from your journey. 
 
It's important to us that our supply partners share our vision and values, and are as passionate about our philosophy of Perfect Delivery we want to develop long-term sustainable relationships with only the best suppliers and subcontractors that support perfect delivery and an incident-free environment. Our supply chain vision is founded on a local approach actively promoting local subcontractors and suppliers. This way we value local relationships and recognise the importance of local economies with which we work. 
PROJECT MANAGEMENT TOOLS 
 
Each project has its own project plan, including a detailed gant chart programme and traffic light of instructions. 
 
This ensures full transparency throughout the project and allows clear communications

Cost Planning 

How many times have you seen or heard of projects going over budget?

This provides a firm platform whereby your design can go out to market for pricing, or what better to use our preferred contractor who will work to the provided cots line. When producing the build costs of your design we can also ensure provisional allowances for those lifestyle items that make your design unique to you.

During any project in addition to the above, we operate a comprehensive traffic light system of variations, whereby our client is in control of the spend, a transparency of cost is vital for a clear and correct project management system. This is dovetailed into a bar, gant chart, illustrating expected milestone payments and can be a useful tool in monitoring a contractor's performance. With our in house management systems we can ensure that both our client and contractors are treated in the correct manor regarding spends and expected payments. This is a huge management tool and helps every party focus on the project and its requirements to ensure successful completion.
