Construction Project Managers

Construction project managers are worth their weight. Our Auckland and Christchurch PM's can oversee your existing building project, or lead and strategise first-hand. Most builders in New Zealand, when asked to provide a service outside of their immediate skill-set, say yes. It's the "she'll be right" attitude, but it's often an expensive lesson. It's best to engage qualified project management companies with a senior planning team, so your Auckland or Christchurch building project runs smoothly, and on budget.

Strong Relationships

The best construction project managers in Christchurch and Auckland are employed by specialist project management companies. These builders have a network of skills, talent & people that they can depend on. It's unrealistic to think that a single builder can provide all things to all people in the building industry, they understandably just don't have the resources, so it's commonly accepted to collaborate on projects. This means that a company's ability to deliver your building project on time is reliant on the strength of their relationships. Wrightway purposely builds strategic alliances within both the project manager Christchurch networks and Auckland based PM networks. We not only employ directly, but we also maintain good relations with contractors, allowing us to access additional manpower or expertise when required.
