Project Management

The cornerstone to the successful implementation of any Project is effective Project Management. PPS Architects offer comprehensive Project Management services that include defining project management specifications, developing and managing complex schedules, budget planning, and implementing value management reporting systems. PPS Architects bring practical experience, commitment, and proven best practices to ensure timeous, quality service delivery.

 
Scope of Services

Architectural work is characterised by a sequential or staged flow of activities. This flow comprises stages that feature prominently in project planning and apportionment of fees. They are:

  • Inception;
  • Concept and viability;
  • Design Development;
  • Documentation and procurement;
  • Construction Contract administration

The responsibilities broadly associated with each stage along the flow of work trajectory are listed below. It is significant that all architectural work, from the smallest and simplest, to the largest and most complex, can – and should – be managed according this flow of work and its elemental stages.

 
Visualisation

PPS Architects can produce 3D architectural photo realistic renderings of both internal and external views to help clients better visualise their project, the technology is used in-house as part of the design process and it provides us with a powerful tool to realise our client’s vision.
