Project management is about minimising risk and achieving tangible outcomes such as on-time delivery to the highest standard and cost efficiency. To achieve the best outcome, we assign project managers with skills and experience best suited to the size and nature of any given project.
There are often many stakeholders in a project: the client, the Woods project team and external organisations such as specialist consultants, Councils, Iwi and interest groups . So, to be effective, a project manager must be a conduit between all parties and a skilled communicator.
All Woods project managers are seasoned professionals. They also have well-established industry networks because, to get things done, knowing the right people, in Councils and the wider industry, is essential.
For every new project, we form a team that comprises professionals with the necessary expertise (planners, urban designers, engineers, surveyors, etc.). These people work on the project from start to finish.
No Woods project team member works in isolation — collaboration is a big part of our culture. Our offices are open-plan, which facilitates communication, and working together side by side provides every team member an appreciation of the overall project.
