How to stay on track with Saint-Gobain’s Self-Build Manager

Talk to any self-builder and they’ll wax lyrical about the importance of being organised when embarking on a self-build project.

There are a few ways to manage your self-build. You can hire a project manager or entrust your builder or architect with some of the responsibilities of steering your project to the finish line.

Many of you may be considering project managing your self-build and this can involve overseeing budgets, drawings, deliveries and tradespeople.

And truth be told, it can prove to be overwhelming, time-consuming and complicated at times.

Getting started on the right foot is paramount and Saint-Gobain’s free online Self-Build Manager can help self-builders project manage their home build efficiently.

The Saint-Gobain Self-Build Manager takes the hassle out of project management woes with its easy-to-use system which keeps everything you need for your project in one place. Let’s face it, every self-builder needs all the support available.

Once you’ve signed up to the Self-Build Manager, you can upload and securely store design plans, documents and images, manage tasks and set deadlines. The collaborative tool also allows self-builders to invite other members involved in the project to view documents and keep abreast of tasks to be completed.

Chaos averted!
