Methodology

Badat Developments understands the challenges faced on projects and will focus on key areas:
Badat Developments is particularly skilled in the management of a professional team, as this is key to a successful project and fulfilling a contract. Understanding the importance of managing a professional team also ensures that the client’s requirements are met and delivered. It is the management of this team and maintaining clear and effective communication within the team that contributes to the success of a project. The team also becomes involved in all critical decision-making which the client makes on the project, which only adds to a strong partnership.
It is important to set benchmarks for the quality that you expect from the professional team and contractor. Before work commences, acceptable quality standards must be established and agreed upon. If everyone is committed to quality, it will ensure that less time is spent on fixing problems which may surface later.
One of the fundamentals of effective project management is the identification and management of risks. Once the professional team has been appointed then it is important to identify the risks associated with the design and construction prior to tender. Badat Developments will continue with risk reviews on a regular basis.
Badat Developments implements an effective communication system between the client, contractor, professionals and the project manager to reduce the risks of claims, etc. It is our experience that most construction disputes can be avoided by the implementation of effective control systems. The company is also acutely aware of the need to keep a contractor on track in order to satisfactorily meet the given time-frame and budget of a project.

 

Badat Developments values the client’s needs and understands the importance of ensuring that expectations are met. We propose to meet regularly with the Client for communication sessions to report any deviations and planned mitigating strategies. Before any project starts, a project briefing document will be drafted by the Project Manager so that all team members are clear of their deliverables, key success factors, risks and lines of communication.

Badat Developments fully understand that if the 4 core areas; scope, cost, quality and time are given priority then the other 5 areas for the effective project management of any project becomes much easier.

 

The company’s broad range of expertise and experience enables it to offer innovative and creative ideas to its clients. The entire team’s principle in producing excellent work and service motivates them to only give their best to their client.
