Home Refurbishment: Project management

Major refurbishment work often involves coordinating several jobs, such as external or internal wall insulation, re-roofing, painting, decoration, kitchen or bathroom installation, window replacement etc.

The potential for undertaking the project yourself will depend on two main things – the complexity of the property and how accomplished and skilled a DIYer you are. In some cases it can be worth appointing or hiring the service of an architect, building surveyor or builder who can:

  • Draw up a programme of works designed to minimise disturbance to occupants.
  • Produce a budget and breakdown of costings.
  • Organise planning applicationa and liaise with Building Control.
  • Prepare drawings and specifications for builders to price from, and for the Building Regs application.
  • Invite quotes or tender the work to an agreed list of contractors.
  • Project manage and administer the contract, including site visit.
