Client specific documentation such as Drawings, information pack, site specific Scoping documents and client specific “What Good Looks like” documents should be issues to all parties as an aid to completing a “Right First Time” installation.


It is vital that the Project Manager established and maintains a 2-way communication relationship with the specific clients individual Project Lead, Retail Project Managers and Direct contractors to ensure that all agreed scope changes are communicated and understood to ensure an accurate delivery.

The aim is to always succeed to a high achievement, receiving positive feedback and performance scores from our clients which will be the measure of success for the individual Project Manager and the delivery processes we have in place.


It is impossible to plan for the unexpected when delivering projects, however a successful Project Manager sees the unexpected Risks and Issues as an opportunity to implement further reactive solutions that results in a successful implementation.

Our stakeholders are kept informed and consulted on any issues identified during the delivery stage, presenting not only ‘Issues’ but ‘solutions’ highlighting any potential impacts or delays on the delivery timelines.


It is important that the Project Manager embraces the systems that have been implemented by the company as these are there to simplify the capture and storage of information required to build the delivery plan, communicate to Stakeholders, and show due diligence.

It is the role of the Project Manager to ensure that information is uploaded to our client’s systems so Operational and legal documentation are kept up to date and available at any point where it is required.

Commercial Awareness

It is the Project Manager accountability to understand how each project has been quoted and look for innovative ways to deliver the project using cost effective delivery models where possible to maximise on profit and minimise loss.

One Team Approach

It is important that we build “One Team” with “Shared Goals” and as such it is essential that we look for ways to support each other, sharing knowledge and experiences but offering physical support where necessary to help minimise duplication and maximise resource availability at all time.
