Project Management Services

Depending on the time and experience you have, when you build with Potton, you can do as much or as little as you want. Not only can you tailor your design but also the way you build...

As a Potton customer you have the choice of two routes, Self-manage your build or use Potton Project Management Services to take care of things on your behalf.

Potton Project Management Services

An enhanced in-house support service intended to get your project off to a flying start.

The Potton Project Management Service has been developed  specifically for the Potton self builder who does not want to be involved in the “heavy side” of the construction process in the early stages of the build.

We will carefully plan and manage your build from foundations to a completely watertight and secure structure including roof tiling, external cladding and the installation of windows and doors.  This leaves you to concentrate on the more manageable (and enjoyable!) stage of your project covering the fixtures and finishes of your new home, where you can use your ideas to create your own dream interior.

These are just some of the items that the service covers:

  • A comprehensive Build programme
  • Procurement of the subcontract trades and materials
  • A fully costed schedule of works
  • Foundation design  (Consultant Engineer Fees will apply)
  • Foundation and substructure construction
  • Foul and surface water drainage within the site boundaries
  • Scaffolding and temporary works
  • Superstructure construction including claddings and joinery
  • Advice on installation of utilities
  • Liaison with building control and warranty provider representatives
