Site and project management

Building site management and build project management services for Cumbria, the Lake District and the North West

We have a proven track record in building site management. In our site management role we are responsible for: the day-to-day on site running of a construction project; keeping within the timescale and budget of a project; managing any delays or problems encountered on-site during a construction project; managing quality control, and health and safety checks. We also inspect all of the work carried out.

We prefer to be involved from an early stage, often before work commences, and we are capable and confident in managing communications between all parties involved in the on-site development of the project.

We can also help with project management for your build. Lots of people do opt to project manage their own build but it can be a very demanding role. We make ourselves available to order all of the required materials and schedule their delivery, set the work priorities for all trades on site throughout the project, and keep a tight rein on the budget and build duration.

Both aspects of management ensure that all work progresses smoothly and safely on site. Whether you are looking for contractors for renovations, refurbishments, extensions, light structural work, or conversions, project and site management are essential considerations.

Please also see our projects pages for examples of builds where our site management and project management services have paid dividends for the clients.

    Troughton's is a family firm and after working on our property throughout 2015 and 2016, we feel honoured to have been part of this family during the renovation / conversion of our property. During 2015 when the farmhouse was being renovated we were still living in Lincoln. Despite the distance, Jim and Paul Troughton kept us regularly informed on progress, on decisions to be taken and sent us regular photographs. Jim not only acted as a builder but full project manager and his son Paul was instrumental in design choices ensuring a beautiful finished product. Without even asking for many of the features we now have, Jim sourced traditional stone flags for our fire places and some floored areas, plus traditional looking timbers and slates for window trusses and sills. Jim knows exactly how our old farmhouse and barn conversion should look. His own staff have a wide range of skills and where necessary he used skilled sub-contractors. The quality of everyone's work has been faultless and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Every member of staff working on our property has been courteous, polite and friendly at all times. The Troughton Home Improvements team have produced a beautiful home for us. It is truly our dream house.
