The importance of project management in the construction industry is undeniable, and we believe our clients’ success is contingent on the level of dedicated service we provide.  That is why we pride ourselves on our relationships with our clients.  Almost 80% of our work is repeat business.


Our specialist teams have a wealth of knowledge in project management and aligned services and have extensive experience in Development, Commercial, Construction and Project Management.


By understanding the unique set of complexities and demands surrounding complex construction allows us to deliver projects on budget, on time, every time.  Our clients benefit from our comprehensive and co-ordinated approach to a turnkey project management solution from concept to completion.  We cover all the details.


Effective project management is the key to project success.  The level of professional resources from which our clients can draw upon provides a customer-focused service that enables us to bring projects to a successful conclusion.  This includes the following:

  • Construction strategies
  • Principal Agent
  • Client Representative
  • Project Audits
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Commercial Management
  • Project Planning
  • Field/Site Management
  • Project Planning
  • Contract Administration
  • Programming/Time Management


Each one of our disciplines impacts on the other and as such, our integration offers significant benefits, particularly when considering our global reach.  Two decades of developing and managing projects have given ORIGIN particular expertise in:

  • Creation of business plans and bespoke property development
  • Project funding/funding application documentation
  • Acting as Employer’s Representative
  • Management of the pre-construction development process
  • Business planning and accommodation strategies
  • Equity participation
  • Land identification and acquisition
  • Commercial Management
  • Contract Administration and Legal 


Effective monitoring of construction costs is merely one part of the cost management equation.  Costs must be controlled at every stage of the development process from planning through design and the construction process.  Our competencies are as follows:

  • A systematic and proactive approach to managing budgets
  • Regular review meetings to monitor budget vs actual
  • Life cycle costing
  • Commercial Management
  • Value engineering
  • Equity participation/B-BBEE targeting and control


The structure and scope of certain contracts allow for the appointment of a Construction Manager.  The Construction Manager divides the project into smaller logical packages and manages these as an Agent on behalf of the client.  The advantages of Construction Management are:

  • Greater control of the contractor P&G, resulting in cost savings of up to 7%
  • No mark up on s/c trades (ranging between 3-5%)
  • Greater flexibility to process client-initiated changes at minimum costs
  • Establishment of work packages to suit B-BBEE requirements and/or the appointment of local contractors without requiring Principal Contractor approval.

    “While our industry has taken steps to protect the planet by becoming more sustainable, what we have collectively achieved isn’t enough. We need to transform the way we build, refurbish, operate and repurpose the built environment.”

    – Neil Graham, Founder & CEO ORIGIN & ORIGIN International
