Xanadu Eco Park

Gerald

After recently purchasing a new property at Xanadu Eco Park we required a building contractor to manage and construct a house according to our design. I engaged with Gerald from 2M Bou Projekte after seeing his signage at another site that he was constructing.

As this was our first residential project we were both excited but also cautious about all the well published pitfalls that one hears of and therefore we decided that we would like a hands on approach to the finances and the timelines of the project. This was our conditions on the outset and Geralds project management approach fitted our requirement completely.

A concern that we had was, that our hands on requirements and our particular quest for quality (sometimes very particular), would cause conflict between owner and project manager and we made it clear that we need to communicate electronically on a regular bases and need visibility of financial outputs.

This approach seemed to work well and the commitment of Gerald to keep the communications channels open at all time was very reliving. On a weekly bases we visited the site and it was inspiring to find the site cleaned of all rubble and accessible which made it easy to track progress and report back on any of our findings. Gerald managed to negotiate on our behalf for favourable deals on finishes and sub contractors. Gerald and his team integrated with the estate management and ensured that all estate rules were followed which created a good ongoing relationship between owner and estate.

I believe the benefit we encountered from Geralds  project approach was:

  • That we were able to actively participate in the project
  • Monitor and plan for upcoming costs and visibility to budgeted forecasts and expenses
  • Minimise wastage of time and materials by proper planning and proactive re-planning
  • Freedom to communicate and have a healthy working relation
  • Advice on standards and best practices on building principles

Overall, the experience we had with constructing our dream house was painless and fun,

With the professional manner in which Gerald and Marnitz engadged on this project, I can recommend 2M Bou Projekte for any residential  construction.
