This is an ongoing diary for a project we are delivering for a Client. We hope to cover the main stages of the build and update the diary regularly showing how the process moves forward. We execute 2-3 projects a year on behalf on Clients and they range from full projects to shell only where Client’s then take on the management of the internal fit out stages.

TONY HOLT DESIGN APPOINTED TO PROJECT MANAGE SELF BUILD

We are over the moon to secure the appointment to project manage this replacement dwelling in Dorset. Our role will include managing all aspects of the build, including the site, trade contractors including the procurement of materials and products. Having already secured planning permission for the Client and prepared full working drawings and details, it feels like a natural step to continue our involvement by helping the deliverable of the project on site. It enables continuity of design intent including the Client befitting from a delivery team with aligned interests to their own. We have already secured the Client a trade account to facilitate a huge financial benefit before we prepare to mobilise and complete site set up.

Below is a photograph of the existing property:
