Skilled Surfer Manages Tide Waves of Projects for iBuild
Peter Kiraly is an enthusiastic surfer and a Project Manager at iBuild. Pete's substantial experience in residential and commercial construction management helps him manage the tide waves of projects for iBuild.
During the interview, Peter took one of our clients project as an example to explain what he does as a project manager to help the NSW client Kate design and build her two-bedroom Avila home from scratch.
Peter mentioned one issue during the project. With standard off-the-shelf design, Kate’s granny flat would be too close to the existing house. So Peter coordinated with the draftsman to tailor the Avila design to the site’s specific circumstance.
As a project manager, Peter engages clients, designers, engineers, and suppliers. He helps write up contracts, monitor approval progress, and manage procurement as well as any change requests from clients. In addition, in the course of the project Pete tracks material delivery schedule to ensure right delivery of right materials, right time, at the right place.
During the interview Peter also showed off iBuild's project management system, Producteev, to illustrate how it works.
"This system ensures that clients and all team members working on a project are kept up to date with progress and everyone has an opportunity to comment, as required.
"It's user-friendly. It's there to keep clients and the team "in the loop" and simplify communication for all involved."
Peter said that this excellent project management system helps iBuild's project team to communicate and work closely with clients hand in hand to design and deliver best project outcome for clients.
Peter is an enthusiastic surfer, and lives with his partner in the Victoria coastal town of Torquay. Since the video interview, they have just had their first baby – congratulations!
