Project Management and Development Monitoring
Philip Russell Associates can provide comprehensive building construction project management for all clients working on large or complex developments across London, Winchester and surrounding areas. When carrying out project management, our firm will act as an agent for your team, utilising a detailed knowledge of the design and construction process and a complete understanding of the roles of the other professional consultants required for the project.
Why use a professional Project Manager?
Employing our expertise from an early stage of your project will ensure your project runs as smoothly as possible. We will help you implement and adhere to your budgets, navigate any existing programme constraints and provide onsite quality control throughout your project’s construction.
Using our Project Management experience alleviates the pressure on you to worry about the small details and minimises the significant risk of mistakes and delays when overseeing a complex project. It also saves you from having to liaise with numerous stakeholders, contractors and vendors on a daily basis, allowing you to focus on more important aspects of the project execution or your regular work.
Philip Russell played an important role in delivering the Theatre Project on time and intact, managing a complicated, varied and thoroughly inconvenient project in a tight time and financial framework.
Philip clearly had a complete mastery of the project, has handled our team and the contractors excellently and has worked very long hours to deliver it. All of us on the SEM value what he has done and are in no doubt as to the importance of the project to the Barbican’s future.

What does Project Management and Development Monitoring include?
At Philip Russell Associates, we tailor the service that we provide to suit your specific needs. Some projects are more complex than others, and we appreciate that, while it is beneficial to have one person responsible for overseeing every aspect of the build, you may already have agreements in place with other contractors. As required, our team typically provide the following:
- Design specification
- Utility management
- Liaising with planning authorities
- Budget planning and cost control
- Contract administration
- Site meetings, progress monitoring and reporting
- Certifications, warranties, snagging and handover
If you are interested in professional Project Management, please get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.
How do you ensure that projects remain within budget?
A monitoring and appraisal service is offered for banks and institutional investors, property developers or ultimate tenants. The aim is to ensure that buildings or fit-out works are constructed within cost parameters and to programme, but more importantly, to the standards required by both the client and statutory authorities.
What types of construction projects do you work with?
Within our team, we have a broad range of experience and we have worked on various commercial projects across London, the UK and Europe from office fit-outs and ‘re-stacking’ existing space to new build offices, retail premises or warehouses. We have worked for both the private and public sectors, and among our prestigious clients are London Underground Ltd, Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds Banking Group and the Barbican Centre.
If you are planning a large office new build or fit-out, leisure facility, retail outlet or commercial warehouse or distribution centre, contact our team to see how we could help keep your project on track.
Project Management Testimonials
Phil Russell acted as a Commercial Manager for the London Underground PPP (Public Private Partnership), carrying out the establishment, management and maintenance of cost control, monitoring and reporting systems within the Government’s £150m project budget.
This involved controlling a vast array of internal costs, including the activities of approximately 600 people and several external consultancy firms. Phil made a considerable contribution by designing and running computer systems to integrate a multitude of cost centres. He automated reports and had very high standards of presentation.
He reported to me in my capacity as PPP Programme Director and we were required to comply with the highest standards of audit and scrutiny, including the Transport Select Committee at the House of Commons.
Phil was a key member of the project team. His work was accurate and produced in accordance with the programme. He works well under pressure and would be an asset to any major project. I would not hesitate in working with him again.
