having the right team for a refurbishment project

Having the right team for a refurbishment project is key to success

Many peoples projects go wrong for one simple reason. It’s not having the right team for their refurbishment project. That means they either don’t have the right people in it or they have people in the wrong positions in their team

Who should be in a team?

Depending on the nature and scope of your project you may need any/all of the following:

  • Planning Consultant
  • Architect
  • Quantity Surveyor
  • Structural Engineer
  • Project Manager
  • Builder
  • Specialist Contractors

Who you decide to have in your team is going to have a big influence on how smooth and successful your project is. It is also going to have a big influence on the cost of your project

Don’t get the right people involved and its going to cost you a lot of money to put the mistakes right. But get too many people involved and its going to cost you a lot of money for people who don’t need to be there.

There is a saying “the dream don’t work without teamwork”. And this is certainly true on a refurbishment project. You want to pick a team with contrasting skills that can complement each other

What if I have picked the wrong team?

This is a common problem so don’t worry about it. The important thing is to take action , sooner rather then later. Sometimes team members can be moved around and will actually do better in their new role. But sometimes there is no suitable role to move them to. When this happens you have to let them go

Everyone has heard the saying “a bad workman blames his tools”. When you are running a refurbishment project, your team members are your tools. It’s up to you to select the right tool for the right job. And once you have done that you have to use that tool properly
