You can be in control of your construction project.“You have a construction expert working on your behalf.”
I am the owner’s representative, I manage the project
I am Richard Wodehouse, owner of West Coast Project Management Inc. I am an expert Residential Construction Project Manager / Owner’s Representative based in Marin County, California. I help homeowners enjoy a successful, stress free experience in the building of their projects in the San Francisco Bay Area including Marin, Sonoma, and Napa to the north.
I do this by applying the experience and knowledge gained in 45 years of building fine structures. The savings I create with my budget and schedule oversight will eliminate delays, change orders, and cost overruns. These savings more than cover the cost of my involvement, plus give you the assurance of having a construction expert on your side. My current projects in the San Francisco Bay area are in Marin, Sonoma/Napa and San Francisco.

When the General Contractor Isn’t Working
However, with Richard’s help and under his supervision we were able to hire a crew to finish framing and streamline the process of subcontracting for the interior work. Additionally, he gave us guidance on structural issues, framing, and waterproofing. Without doubt, Richard’s role in getting our project back on track can not be overstated. He even helped us to restore our faith in the profession.
