Project Management Brighton

At Black Olive Construction, every home renovation design & build project we take on is fully managed through all stages, from initial conception to design, planning, construction and all the way through to final installations and finishes. Effective project management is central to everything we do and we believe it’s one of the key reasons for our continued success with our clients in Brighton & Hove.

Full control to deliver your brief

Complete project management means we retain full control over each individual element of your project. Whether we are carrying out a kitchen redesign in the North Laine area, a loft conversion near Hove Park or a listed building restoration in Kemp Town, we’re able to keep a tight grip on the agreed budget, co-ordinate core trades as required and deliver in defined timescales, while remaining flexible to a change in client instructions and able respond to unexpected circumstances.

Managing design & build projects can be challenging job at times. At Black Olive Construction, we pride ourselves on impeccable standards of job completion, based on 30 years of industry experience and solid foundations of transparency and open communication.

With our Brighton-based team, there’s no need for you to fret about any of the aspects of your home improvement projects. On the contrary, you’ll have complete peace of mind that we’re on the ball, keeping you fully in the loop, providing solutions to any potential difficulties and delivering your project as planned. You really couldn’t be in better hands.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to instruct an architect?

Depending on the complexity of the proposed works, architectural design services may be required for your renovation project. However, as a vertically integrated company providing fully managed design & build services, Black Olive Construction deliver complete design solutions to support our building activities. This may include architectural services, structural engineering, planning applications, interior and landscaping design, and specifications as needed to achieve your brief. In other words, you don’t need to instruct anyone except us.

Whose job is it to obtain planning permission?

Planning permission is often not needed as long as the proposed building works fall under Permitted Development Rights; your local planning authority will be able to confirm this. However, these rights do not apply to leasehold properties (typically flats and maisonettes but also some houses), homes in Conservation Areas and designated listed buildings. Planning consent is also typically required for major structural alterations and large-scale developments. As a provider of fully project managed design & build services in Brighton, we will be liaising with local planning officers and apply for the necessary consents on your behalf.

Which contractors and tradespeople do you use?

Your dedicated in-house project manager will organise, monitor and liaise with all the key contractors required for your home improvement project. This includes groundworks and civil engineering, masonry, carpentry, roofing, plumbing and electrics, plastering joinery and decorations as well as any additional contractors for specialist installations. With full project management control in our hands, and all resources meticulously recorded and reported by our in-house project administrators, we can provide you with full peace of mind, knowing that everything is expertly taken care of.

    David BCustomer Brighton

    Back in 2021 Black Olive took over the management of a complicated building project. It wasn't an easy job and the project manager had to deal with some significant but unforseen issues.
    Even several months after completion I was able to contact them for follow-up and the manager dealt with any problems that arose both during and after the work.

    VictorCustomer Brighton

    Black Olive is particularly effective at client liaison, and I have always found that their projects start and finish on time with regular updates on progress in-between.
    Black Olive team has a particular eye for detail, takes care to fully understand the requirements, uses strong initiative to overcome any unforseen difficulties in a variety of creative ways and manages internal and external labour extremely effectively.
