Why should you use a dedicated project manager?

When you have a dedicated project manager the project should move forward in one direction.

The project manager holds everyone accountable to the project activities as it relates to cost, schedule and quality.

I have hired an architect & contractor for my project. Do I still need a project manager?

If you as the project owner have experience in managing that particular type of project, and you have the time to dedicate to the project, then you will not need a project manager. However, if you do not have the expertise in the subject matter that your project entails, then you need a project manager dedicated to your project. Additionally, if one who is managing the project does not allow the appropriate amount of time required for the project, your project will fall short in several areas, beginning with the schedule.

How does staff augmentation actually work?

Most corporations execute capital projects to their facilities annually that are essential to their core businesses and product lines. Many of those corporations have fully staffed departments with architects, engineers and construction managers dedicated to capital improvements. By using Don Hardin Group, many of our clients saved thousands of dollars by augmenting their staffs with our professionals in their respective fields upon the Owner’s request. Staff augmentation allows corporations to eliminate some of the project burden costs as well as utilize the expertise of qualified professionals for only the duration required to support the project. DHG is responsible for our employees’ next project. Although we can help our clients fill various types of professionals, our particular area of staff support positions include:

  • Construction coordinators
  • Construction engineers
  • Professional engineers (Tennessee registration)
  • Project managers (some are certified by Project Management Institute)
