David Cooper Associates realise that effective Project Management does not begin on site but should begin as a proactive plan ‘off site’. Project management has evolved over the years in order to plan, coordinate and control the complex and diverse activities of modern residential and commercial projects.

As a practice we have extensive experience of managing projects from inception to completion. Utilising our wealth of experience, David Cooper Associates are able to foresee, predict and control many of the factors which have an adverse impact on the successful completion of a project.


Working closely with the Client we develop the Specification which maps out the processes and actions required to successfully deliver the project.

We will review, develop and communicate:

  • The Client’s objectives, requirements, priorities, financial constraints
  • The project risks; allocating them to contractors best qualified to deal with and manage them
  • Any requirement to employ specialists and advise on how best to procure them
  • The best form of procurement taking account of time and cost restraints
  • Reporting procedures to keep the client abreast of development with the project and within the design team


Taking into account the client’s requirements and time constraints we will advise on the best methods for contractual arrangements, tendering procedures and method of award.

We will identify and recommend contractors best suited for the form and scale of project and supervise the required tendering and award process.

In addition we will manage the construction process, monitor cost and progress, arrange meetings and reports to the client in the format which best meets their needs.
