Having the responsibility for a large warehouse or factory project can be a huge undertaking. However, there’s no need to face this task alone. There are professional companies well placed to handle part or all of the work. Knowing how to delegate is the only skill you’ll need! Find a company that can schedule, organise and deliver it all on time, leaving you to continue with your normal work duties.
The person in charge of the work will be the project manager. They will be responsible for the planning, procurement of materials and workforce, and accomplishment of the project. As your representative, they will determine and implement your needs. They will oversee the triple constraint: schedule, cost and scope, whilst ensuring quality is met at all stages. Project managers work within all trades: construction, architecture, IT, engineering and insurance. Your project manager should be experienced in your domain, so they can build a project team with the correct skills set. This can be one contractor or a series of contractors. The project manager will provide strong leadership over the whole workforce so the project goals are met.
