Merlin Custom Home Builders hosted fellow members of their National Home Builders Association (NAHB) Builder 20 Club group, The Doors, at a Project Management Summit on September 13th at the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The seminar provided group members with education on the role Project Management plays in the success of a luxury custom home building company as well as practical skills and tools that can increase the success of building projects.
“Good Project Management skills are vital to success when building custom homes,” said Erica Morrison, Co-owner and COO of Merlin Custom Home Builders. “Effective planning and proper work management processes can be the difference between success and failure in providing the luxury homes and condominiums that not only meet, but exceed a clients’ visions.”
The seminar included sessions on the role of Project Managers; communication tools; prioritization and scheduling skills; selecting subcontractors and vendors; managing project budgets and quality control.
