Project Management & Employer's Agent

The Design & Build procurement route has evolved to incorporate not only ‘Simple Buildings’ but more complex and high Specification Buildings. This form of procurement route is prevalent within the construction industry.

With this change in procurement route has come the growth of the Project Management & Employers Agent roles. Kavannagh Partnership Ltd provide management expertise and leadership to help Clients avoid the potential pitfalls of the construction process and ensure a successful project. KPL provide the skills and resources to control projects from inception through to completion on site.

Some of our more experienced Clients have, on occasions, opted for a “Construction Management” procurement route. Contracting directly with individual trade contractors and avoiding the requirement to appoint a Main Contractor has proved financially beneficial whilst not compromising quality of the end product or timescales for delivering the project. 


We co-ordinate the activities of all parties in order to achieve agreed objectives. We assess the viability of the project, review alternative options, identify the risks & propose solutions. Once a comprehensive brief has been agreed, we provide all the resources neccessary to achieve a successful result, optimising the balance between cost, time and quality.

Our project managers have the technical understanding, extensive practical experience and commercial awareness to ensure that every Client receives the highest standard of service.

KPLs project managers undertake the role for Clients taking responsibility to deliver a project on time, within budget and to the highest appropriate level of quality.

Through strong leadership and good teamwork we bring added value to any project.
