Project Review: Lessons learned and how to improve.

If you are doing a self build then it’s probably a one off, but you never know, some people get the bug and fancy another go. If you think you might, then a project review can identify what you would do differently next time.

Sit down and have a look back through your records. Compare how your build progressed in comparison with your initial plans.

Have a look at:

  • How your build progressed in comparison with your programme of works.
  • Whether your actual spend was in line with your itemised budget costs.
  • Did quality and workmanship meet your expectations?
  • How your plans changed along the way.
  • Safety record.
  • Security record.
  • Building regulation compliance.
  • Building warranty compliance.
  • Management of human resources.
  • Management of materials resources.
  • Management of tools and equipment resources.
  • Cash flow and payment schedules.
  • Other.

Identify the successes and the failures and note it all down so you know what works and what you would do differently.

Keep these review notes. You never know, you might need them again someday!
