The NSBRC Guide to Project Management

This course is essential for anyone considering their first self build, home improvement, loft conversion or renovation project. Covering everything from budgeting, insurance and site management through to health & safety, snagging and VAT reclaim.

Delivered on Zoom, over three 2 hour modules, this online course is delivered by experienced Project Manager, Charlie Laing. Charlie has presented NSBRC courses for several years and is Director at CLPM Ltd, a specialist project management business. 

 

Charlie is a building project management expert and heads up our project management team. As a member of the Laing family construction dynasty, you could quite literally say building is in Charlie’s blood. With over 25 years in the industry, Charlie has project managed everything from major commercial projects overseas to more modest residential new builds and renovations in the UK.
