At Kensway our clients and their individual requirements are our number one priority in everything we do.
We do extensive research to ensure we fully understand our clients needs and that of the project to hand.
We listen, we communicate and never lose sight of the fact that the expectations of our client are paramount.
We see our Clients as an essential part of the project team and strive to closely involve them in all aspects of their project from commencement to conclusion.
We build long term relationships with our clients based on our philosophy of delivering very high standards.
A large percentage of our business is with satisfied, repeat clients.
Whilst we assign a dedicated Project Manager and/or Quantity Surveyor to each project, we also call on the combined skills and experience of our other team members to ensure each and every aspect of the process is well considered and expectations surpassed.
Why use a Project Manager?
The google search for the definition of a “Project Manager” will tell you the following:
Project Management is the discipline of carefully projecting or planning, organizing, motivating and controlling resources to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria.
A “project” is a temporary endeavour designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end(usually time- constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables) undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about change or added value.
We have in the past, asked clients “Why do they need a Project Manager?”
Their answers have been varied with very few really understanding what we do.
The simplest description is that:
We embrace a project, to deliver a result that satisfies the clients’ expectations.
We organize and coordinate teams to ensure all aspects of the project are covered.
We manage and lead the team, and represent the client.
We always aim to deliver a product of the highest quality in line with the specification – and to do this on time, and within budget.
