Installation Project Management
Our approach to each project is to ensure full understanding of our customers’ needs and become an integral part of the project team. We are skilled and effective in this area and our collective expertise provides practical support to relieve the pressure of delivering a successful project.
Installation Initiation and Strategy
The Heartwood project process begins with job familiarisation, this includes getting to know the buildings, client processes and procedures, the project team and structure of the organisation.
The Heartwood team will integrate into the wider project team and attend all project team meetings. In this phase various other meetings will be organised. These meetings will include interaction with IT services, Facilities services, Departmental meetings, Furniture meetings and Fit-out meetings.
Once the project team and strategy are organised, a detailed installation programme and work sequencing will be prepared. This programme is a working document and will be updated and communicated on a regular basis.
Project Control Procedures
Our planning procedures ensure that all work from initial enquiry to delivery and completion is undertaken conscientiously and in a manner, which sets and maintains a professional standard of service. Our operating protocols ensure clarity and quality in every aspect of our company.
All procedures and practices, routine or specialised, whether formally documented or personally monitored are subject to regular analysis, beneﬁcial criticism, updating and improvements. Our operating framework demands that activities are eﬀectively controlled and undertaken according to company policy and client requirements. To ensure these objectives are fully met we review our activities at regular intervals.
Heartwood will assess all risks including Health & Safety risks on each phase of the works and ensure management controls & contingencies are in place to deal with all eventualities.
Clear communication to our staff, contractors, suppliers and visitors is a key factor to a successful installation. It is important to list and involve all of the various stakeholders and decide on their level of involvement within the process and the level of communication that is required. Our Project Manager will work with the project team to establish and manage the communication strategy.
The communication strategy will include:
- Communication tools and timing
- Roles and responsibilities in the communication process
- Meeting structure including meetings with various representatives and stakeholders
- Post installation experience and support
- Review of the communication process.
- Our level of support depends on how far your planning process has already materialised as well as the available skills within your own project team. We can take full control of your project or just be there to guide and support you through the installation to ensure it is a seamless process for you and your staff.
