Project Management East Sussex

If engaging a ‘Project Manager’ is seen as a ‘extravagance’ then it is worth making an assessment of the cost of not engaging one. Put simply, a ‘project manager’ can help protect against overruns of time, money, under performance and standards of workmanship; and in doing so, can in fact save money.

Project Management in East Sussex

Project management involves a range of duties from simply administering the contract financially, through to fully day to day managing of your construction or renovation project, including making sure that you are fully responsible for delivering, and complying with the various rules and regulations.

Southdown Surveyors can help create the initial Specification and then oversee the competitive tendering process and award the contract. We can tailor-make our professional service around your budget and circumstances, across Hastings, Bexhill, Eastbourne and East Sussex, giving you the reassurance that your full time project is organised, controlled and implemented correctly and to your satisfaction.

Construction, Refurbishment, Maintenance Projects

Construction, refurbishment and maintenance projects will often involve a number of different professionals such as architects, builders and the Local Authority Planning and Building Control Departments for example.

Drawing on our professional qualifications, our extensive and varied experience of the building industry, and our commitment to work with all parties in a friendly and cooperative way, we can look for potential problems before they occur, liaise with relevant parties to keep up the flow of information and work and help steer the project to completion on time and on budget. We can speak both the language of the building industry and that of our clients; translating where necessary!

Professional Project Management Surveyors

If you would like the assistance of a professional, expert and friendly advisor to explain what your project involves, the right and wrong ways to approach it coupled with the confidence that comes from having your interests looked after at each step of the way, then engaging a project manager must surely be at the top of your list when planning your project. A quick, no obligation enquiry to us will help you decide whether we are the ones to work with and for you.

We are further experienced in liaising with lending institutions to authorise the draw-down of funds for projects where monies have been borrowed; as so often a stipulation and term of the lender.

Occasionally works may not necessarily warrant the expertise of a Surveyor throughout the project, although the security and peace-of-mind of our involvement at specific stages, may still be valued. The media are forever warning us about the risks of rogue tradesmen and ‘cowboy builders’ so, for just a small one-off fee we will happily look over any quotations received, perhaps meet the contractor, make a site visit and assess the finished job before you hand over the final payment, thus providing you or your vulnerable loved-one with peace-of-mind and financial reassurance.

Southdown Surveyors took over the management of South Cliff Tower a year ago and have proved excellent agents to date. At present the tower is undergoing a complete refurbishment programme, this has resulted in substantial service charge demands and a great deal of paperwork. It has been extremely well handled by Lynne and her team. They have dealt with managing the building with efficiency, tact and charm. We have been impressed with the breadth of knowledge of Landlord & Tenant Act, Health & Safety matters that they have displayed.


I have been most pleasantly surprised by the high-level service Southdown have supplied, they are small enough for them to know their client’s needs and for those clients to have a name and face to respond to when necessary, whilst still having qualified surveyors on board.
