We are building three houses and want to get a project manager in to oversee the building rather than getting an established building company in. Does anyone else do this? If so, what is approximate price that project managers charge? Is it a percentage of the final sale price? Or is it a fixed cost? Or a percentage of the building costs?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Linar, i think most charge about 30%. I have had a quote for 90% above for a straighforward job (yeah right i'll give them the job!). We just did it ourselves, although my husband is a Project Manager anyway but in IT&T. I'm sure others can offer you more detail than i can. Maybe if you post where it is someone may know someone who is not only reputable but reasonably priced. good luck anywaysapphire101Participant@sapphire101Join Date: 2006Post Count: 203
I have had a project manager offer a set 'wage' per week of $600 over the build time of 22 weeks.loccoMember@loccoJoin Date: 2007Post Count: 62

at our work, everyones subby's ( company with own insurances and super etc..) and my foreman is on $55 an hour and boss charges him out at $65 an hour.. so do the maths and you got your price…
and if those % ppl are quoting are referring to running the entire site, its more like minimum 15% walk in.. that and bigger hourly rates..James007Member@james007Join Date: 2007Post Count: 64
