What does a project manager do? In the case of Forbes Project Management, the answer is anything from inspecting a house that a client is thinking of buying to assuming full responsibility for overseeing the construction of a villa – or a complete resort!

Whether the client is a private individual or a company developing a resort, the process is the same: only the scale of operation changes. Forbes Project Management can be involved from the earliest stages of walking the land and checking the feasibility of the intended project including planning issues and all relevant costings.

Assuming the project proceeds, Forbes Project Managements’ work expands to include choice of architect and, if necessary, builders and other tradesmen and specialists as well. They will represent the client throughout the process, keeping in constant touch with progress on the project, dealing with day-to-day decisions and problems as they arise and keeping the client fully updated on a regular basis. Often the client is based away from Portugal and it is therefore reassuring to know that there is someone with experience and know-how taking care of the project on site.

For developers, project management can mean co-ordinating up to 40 or more contractors, all of whom need to be briefed and brought on stream at the appropriate time so as to keep the project flowing. The brief from the developer to Forbes Project Management may also include assistance with drawing up the contracts for the various contractors and help with descriptions and specifications.

From a single villa to a complete resort, from a petrol station to a golf course, Forbes Project Management has the experience and the resources to offer a complete professional service.
