Many experienced landscape designers, managers, and trades personnel often wonder why projects don’t turn out the way they or the client anticipated. It is crucial that the projects’ objectives, expectations, and deliverables be clearly defined in the briefing stage, prior to execution, thus the important of understanding the project brief.
Compiling and identifying a detailed brief for each project is key to establishing a clear understanding of the parameters of the project. Essentially the project brief captures and defines the core project objectives, scope, deliverables, budgets, and schedules, so that the job at hand runs smoothly and we can work together in achieving a focused and desired outcome.
It is important for all team members (office staff, management, supervisors, tradies and apprentices) to gain an understanding of the project brief at hand before the commencement of work. Knowledge is power and a key fundamental to preventing misinterpretation, which can be time-consuming, costly.
Our management systems here at Penfold Projects ensure that the most comprehensive project brief is delivered to all staff involved in the project, and that everyone has the chance to work through the project brief and have a clear understanding of work ahead. Our process and systems have been paramount in ensuring no misunderstanding within our staff, and that each project turns out perfectly.
