Commercial Project Management

After completing your design, there are three ways can help ensure your design is built right:

  • Informally, on request
    We are available to all of our architectural and interior design clients, as needed. Your builder is free to contact us at any time for clarification on the specifications in our Exacting Project Control System.
  • As your Owner Representative
    If you’re hiring a general contractor, we can act as your owner representative (or proxy) to ensure work is progressing on schedule. This would typically include:

    • Performing regular site visits
    • Monitoring overall project progress
    • Adherence to project specifications
    • Ensuring quality checks and inspections are completed
    • Alerting you to any potential delays, cost overruns, or other issues that may arise
  • As Project Manager
    Our role as Project Manager is to oversee every aspect of construction from beginning to end.

Why Work With a Project Manager?

As part of the original planning team, we have a comprehensive working knowledge of your commercial project and can ensure your design plans are well executed.

Project management is the execution stage of a design project. The design decisions are made and now you are ready to decide who will build out your space.

At Decca Design we have the in-house ability to continue the journey with you as a project manager and help you execute your project. As project managers we will work with you to vet the contractors, to schedule and oversee the trades and be your regular on-site representative to protect your interest and ensure the execution is in line with the design concepts and decisions you have previously made.

Our Exacting Project Control System and design finishing binder contains all of the necessary details to make sure each bid is accurate and complete. This ensures we can evaluate all bids by the same criteria and compare “apples-to-apples.”

By making (and documenting) ALL of the design decisions up front, contractors have the information they need to provide accurate pricing. This in turn means your project will come in on budget.

Project management is a fully transparent process. You see all the quotes and invoices for each trade as the project progresses. There are no hidden fees, credits or extras. You are in the driver seat to control all aspects of your project’s budget and timeline.

As Project Manager, we:

  • Collect quotes from and hire qualified trades
  • Order materials, supplies, and millwork in advance, so every phase of the build stays on schedule
    Review and approve invoices
  • Coordinate all aspects of the build (both on- and off-site), including:
    • applying for permits
    • scheduling
    • inspections
    • quality control
    • change requests
    • budgeting
    • WCB and insurance
    • warranties
    • occupancy date
