Role Responsibilities and Duties
The role of the Project Manager is to take the projects from the point of order through to successful completion on site, including all commissioning and hand-over tasks.
The Project Manager would work in a set geographic area and would report to the Head of Projects for instructions and guidance. There will be a need for relatively extensive travel within their area and on occasion to travel further including potential for stay away.
The first stage of a project is to take the Door Costing Schedule and create a Manufacturing Schedule, in the case of a refurbishment this would be by visiting site and measuring existing door openings or where new openings are being created then the architects’ drawings can be used.
The customer is kept updated through this process and all finishes and details are confirmed and the job issued to Operations for processing, on larger projects several site meetings and pre-start meetings are required to make sure all stakeholders are agreed on how the project is going to be delivered.
During the Production period the customer is kept updated as to the agreed delivery dates and if the job is of a certain size then attendance on the first day of installation is required to ensure all details are understood. Further ad hoc site visits may be required as the project requirements dictate. A responsibility
to ensure H&S and CDM regulations are adhered to. There is a need to maintain budgets and agreed timeframes.
Once the installation period is complete then the Commissioning phase needs to be completed where the client signs off the critical systems such as the anti-barricade doors and door alarms to confirm that everything is working correctly, a Post-Project pack is then created by Project Admin and sent to the client
for their O&M information.
