The Mediterranean island of Mallorca, with its stunning scenery and cosmopolitan lifestyle, continues to be chosen by so many as the location of their dream home or second residence. But finding the property is only the beginning of the process: many houses need to be modernised and adapted to the personal style of the buyer, and this is where Justine Knox comes in. With over 35 years living on the island and more than 16 years successfully managing all manner of projects, she is able to offer a one-stop, seamless and ultra-professional project management service, covering all aspects: architectural, construction, electrical, plumbing, heating, air-conditioning, carpentry and decoration.
The key to ensuring everything comes together is an approach that is rigid when it needs to be but flexible enough to adapt to unexpected events, which invariably crop up. Attention to detail is everything, achieved through regular site meetings, proper coordination of project orders, managing tradespeople and effective troubleshooting of any issues that might arise. Between concept and completion there is a lot of activity taking place that needs to be tightly managed so that your project runs smoothly and delivered on time. When a project is entrusted to Justine Knox, these are the tasks she generally and personally undertakes:
Overall project coordination and planning with specific focus on time, cost and quality.
Organising, scheduling and checking deliveries of materials (kitchen, bathroom fittings, flooring).
Managing work schedule – ensuring the right people are on site in the right order and minimising stress.
Sourcing furniture, appliances, tradespeople and obtaining estimate for the work you want done.
Managing the tradespeople on site (builders, specialist kitchen and bathroom fitters, gardeners).
Regularly visiting the site to oversee work is done according to plan.
