Fulton Trotter Architects has a long history of managing their own projects without the need to engage or work with a separate project manager. This has not been an accident. We have strategically targeted this type of market for its projects, as they are ‘of a size’ that do not require the additional service of a separate project manager. Most projects worked on by Fulton Trotter Architects are between $1 million and $30 million in value and we have developed ‘in house’ systems for reporting on projects to ensure they are not only designed well but also managed well. All of our projects run on a standard approach with regular Project Control Group/Steering Committees that we report to and chair once a month for the duration of the project. This meeting is in addition to Site Meetings with the contractor, that are held during construction. Before these meetings we circulate an agenda, previous minutes and a standard PCG report that provides members of the committee with information about the project.
