The value of quality project management

Posted by Wall Treats on February 10, 2019

A renovation or building product is a significant and often stressful undertaking, and so it is no wonder we are finding more and more clients wanting to find someone who can manage the whole process for them.

As life gets busier people are more aware of the value of their time and see the benefits of outsourcing, or they have tried project managing before and realise it’s not as easy as it looks or sounds.

Potential project issues

Managing a building or renovation project involves a number of different trades and all it takes is one party to not show up or to be delayed and the entire timeline is in peril.

When each tradesperson is independent, with no affinity to the others involved, it can result in a lack of engagement in the project as a whole. However, when the trades are affiliated or have a long history of working together, there is camaraderie and an innate obligation and desire to not let the team down.

The Wall Treats difference

At Wall Treats we are known for our project management skills and pride ourselves on making projects run smoothly. We know every project is a big deal for our clients and want it to be as stress-free as possible.

We are house painting specialists with access to professional trades specialists in building and repairs, plumbing, electrical, and glazing - where no job is too big or too small.

With an in-depth understanding of the sequence in which activities need to happen to save you time and money we can coordinate everything. Our Project and Operations Manager has an extensive professional background in project management, which means you are in safe hands. It is important to us that we keep you posted on progress so that you feel confident about what is happening on your project. 

While a builder can also do this, it is rare to find a builder with both the trade skills and the project management prowess as they are a very different skill set. Just think whether you hear more stories of building projects being poorly run or well run.

What do our clients say?

Our clients consistently tell us our clear communication and reputation for smooth project management is why they chose us, and that it makes a big difference to their experience of the process.

“We were also appreciative of the professional manner in which you approached the quotation process and monitored progress with the work, maintaining good communication at all times.”

Professor and Mrs Gregor Coster, homeowners


“Dealing with Ashley, and looking at other projects Wall Treats had carried out, was what moved us to engage Wall Treats. Ashley was so timely, professional, and thoughtful. She really thought about how best to get the job done for us.

We found the painting experience excellent. As a business, Wall Treats really offers the whole package. They have Ashley who is super organised, professional, timely and really thoughtful, and then they have Daniel who is a great painter. He is meticulous, systematic, and gets it done efficiently – but without cutting any corners.

We had some challenges with some of the other contractors, and really appreciated Ashley acting as an interface with them, which took some of the heat off.”

Mr Thegn Ladefoged, homeowner


“The apartments have a variety of homeowners, tenants, and landlords involved. As the Chairman of the Body Corporate, it was important to me to have a painting contractor that knew the system, and could competently manage the project and run with it.

Choosing Wall Treats as our painting contractor was a great decision.

Everything was well planned and thought through before the project began. Wall Treats always kept one step ahead, to manage the process smoothly. I was impressed with their communication, Ashley always kept the tenants and owners informed, so everyone knew what was going on. She really cared about everyone involved, and worked closely with myself and our maintenance contractor.”

Mr Grant Hudson, Chairperson of the Owners Committee

We are very happy with the quality of the paint result we have received from Wall Treats and also with the level of service we received. The team from Wall Treats produced an excellent paint finish and nothing was too much trouble.
Wall Treats’ work was of the highest quality, showing particular attention to detail in all areas. This small business represents both itself and the association very well by being meticulous in all areas from documentation to finished work. They have laid down a challenge for others to follow.
I had dealt with Wall Treats on a professional basis and was impressed with their level of finishing. I engaged Wall Treats for this project because I trusted that they would do a good job. My instincts were right. The Wall Treats team is a delight to deal with and I received efficient service from friendly professionals.
They are totally efficient and they are my number one … they would be my higher end, reliable painters … to refer on, absolutely, I’d think of them first! They’re going to be a little bit more expensive but I think you get what you pay for…
Many thanks for the work you've done on our house. You've done a very good quality job and we also appreciated your reliability, sticking to schedule and the fact you've been totally upfront about the costs.
We received excellent communication from the very moment we contacted Ashley for a quote to the final invoice being paid. Their processes were excellent and ensured that our job was managed in a professional way. We feel that Ashley and Daniel went out of their way to ensure everything went smoothly. Anyone who values ‘peace of mind’ the way we do should ring Wall Treats.
(Wall Treats) stand out by themselves… They’re the only ones who bother to communicate back about how things are going, how the quote’s going … all those sort of things. They’re the only ones who actually go that extra mile.
I was most impressed with the attention to detail and the communication throughout the whole process. The workmen were very considerate throughout the whole time they were at my property. What impressed me the most was that Ashley made sure every single detail was covered and checked in with me regularly. She also came and personally inspected all the work with me... Her standards are very high (as are mine!) and I highly recommend Wall Treats to anyone.
