Headline

Amanda Levete: Architects have allowed project managers to ‘take over’ their role

Comment

I agree with article and would argue that there are three VERY distinct 'project' management tasks for any building project. The first is Brief Management, a client task that architects are best qualified to assist with. The second is Design Management which is an architects key roll. Lastly Construction Management which is best managed by the Main Contractor. The three tasks align completely with the principle CDM roles too. In my experience PMs 'managing' all three is a pointless task sucking a fee from the project completely unnecessarily. Given a proper and fair fee the architect can easily carry out the first two 'project' management roles without interference from a PM appointed superfluously for all three very different 'project management' roles that are best carried out by those best qualified to: the client, the architect and the builder.
