Explore Indie Cambridge: Rebecca Orde Ltd - Property Project Management
It is fair to say that for many of us, our living environment has recently come into sharper focus as we spend more time at home. Looking around our humble abodes, it is probably also true that we wish they could look and function better, but getting started on a renovation or refurbishment project can be daunting. That is when you need the help of an experienced and trusted project manager – and we know just the person!
Rebecca Orde has, in some shape or form, been project managing most of her life, and for the past five years, overseeing residential refurbishments in Cambridge. Her strengths lie in how she communicates, builds relationships and guides her clients through the whole process – from prioritising tasks and getting that all-important planning permission, through to appointing a builder. Working independently from contractors, she puts her clients first and provides that crucial single point of contact for a tried and trusted ‘black book’ of first-class suppliers and trades. No detail is too small – from ensuring tradesmen stay on track, to unpacking the boxes and hanging the pictures when a project is complete.
Rebecca also has a strong sense of community and is passionate about sustainability and helping older people and people with disabilities improve their homes. A recent project to help a neighbour extend the ground floor of her house to install a special Japanese loo, plus Rebecca’s own experience of being given an extremely high marker for Rheumatoid Arthritis, has led her on a path to search out stylish design solutions that can help future proof her clients homes. In her soon to be launched podcast she speaks to some inspiring advocates for inclusivity and shares some of her personal favourite products – challenging us all to think differently about our homes and not just for what we need them for today.
