Role of a Project Manager

Irrespective of the project's size, the Project Manager is responsible for ensuring:

  • that the work is carried out safely
  • that it is compliant with statutory legislation and
  • that it is undertaken in accordance with University rules and procedures.

But equally important, to us, is to ensure that we are meeting your needs and expectations in delivering the work on time, to budget and to the right specification.
