We have the experience

At Project we are led by Phil Byers, who has over 45 years of expertise and experience in taking challenging projects from the drawing board onto building sites and beyond.  So when we work with you you're getting the benefit of all the experience we've gained working on decades of other Client's projects.  Our experience and reputation also mean that when we need to talk to the right people to make a project happen - they listen.

Our history

Project was started by Paula Byers in 2006 to provide project management support in business management systems (now delivered by LimeCloud).

In 2010, Phil sold his share of a larger architectural practice where he developed his career from trainee to Director of the business over 35 years.  He joined Project and it was at this time it was converted to a limited company, Project (SW) Ltd.  Since then, the business has focussed on delivering quality projects for Clients, as a growing architectural design and project management practice and working across the South West and beyond.

We work with the best

We have a huge bank of talented specialists to call on.  We specialise in working with multiple stakeholders and bringing together a whole team of specialists, if that's what a project requires.  We work with the best, which means we always put exactly the right team together for the right job.  We hold everyone we work with to the highest standards to make sure our focus is always on the Client and the end-users of the building.

We build partnerships

In the industry we work in, our integrity and reputation matter hugely to us.  The proof is in the longevity of our relationships with our Clients.  It's because we care about them.  We care about the end users of the building.  We care about who we work with and make sure that we handpick our team for each project, so that we always put the right team together for the right building.

Working with our community

We lend our passion and expertise to our local community, getting involved with projects that enhance and empower our beautiful part of the world here in North Devon.  We actively support with organisations such as Barnstaple Chamber of Commerce, South West Business Council and North Devon Biosphere.
