Project Summary

On this project my subdivision was engaged to undertake full project management and land surveying due to our client having a busy work and family schedule. The offered service would require us to engage all trades to undertake worksand come up with a strategy to keep costs down by doing a detailed subdivision feasibility report and investigation.

Project Challenges

  • Provide turn-key project management and land surveying service.
  • Meeting the client’s maximum budget for spending through cost feasibility study.
  • Detailed Investigation of how to minimise spending on site-works and driveway & drainage construction.
  • Management of clients cashflow through company Trust Fund.

Project Outcome

  • Project went over its original allowed budget by $10,000, due to client’s decision to fully construct a paved driveway to make blocks more appealing to potential buyers.This was a great decision with all blocks marketed and sold off the plan prior to titles being issued.
  • Driveway and drainage earthworks were completed by our preferred contractor and lead to significant cost savings for the client compared to other companies offering similar services.
  • On special request by the client to manage his funds, a new company banking trust fund was set up. The owner was provided with weekly updates on spending’s and copies of bank account statements. This trust fund was audited at end of project by our accountant and all costings & quotes from contractors were provided to the client for complete transparency.
