Circle undertakes the project management of developments of all scales, working mainly in the commercial, residential, hotel, retail, industrial and heritage sectors. We manage new-build, refurbishment and adaptation projects. The project manager is the lead point of contact for a client or their employer’s agent during construction, which simplifies the day-to-day process of delivering a project on time and within budget. Using Circle’s project management service mitigates many of the risks associated with this phase of development through experienced management of design and construction teams.

Our project managers ensure that project teams fulfil their obligations under the relevant contracts. We are often asked to combine this role with other services such as quantity surveying and/or employer’s agent — an efficient collaborative approach that can deliver cost savings and streamlined design management. Whatever service or combination of services we are providing, we focus on clear communications, concise direction, and good working relationships with client teams, contractors and other consultants. Good design generates value: good project management makes sure that value is captured cost-effectively.

We look for the use of efficient construction methodologies and minimised waste, and we advocate the use of building information modelling (BIM) from project stage 1 for its advantages in co-ordination.
