BUOL 635 8 Week Final Project
Provide the final project plan for completing the project described below on time, on budget, and turned over to the owner. Expect a total of 15 pages.
The full project
You are the project manager for a $10,000,000 construction project to build the first buildings on a new satellite college campus. The construction contract calls for an eight-month construction time with a $1,000/day late penalty. The project is to build:
- a 2-lane entrance of.25 miles
- parking for 50 vehicles
- water and sewer connection
- a classroom building on a 60’ x 60’ single solid concrete slab for classrooms
- 6 classrooms configured with sound reducing sliding dividers that can allow for 2 large presentation rooms, each classroom is to be equipped with a ceiling mounted projector, an electronic screen at the ceiling (5’ x 8’) a fully electronic white board, 20 chairs and tables to accommodate the chairs, and a teaching podium with computer and electronic connection to enable displaying content on the screen, and a document camera also linked to the display system.
Develop a complete production plan including a detailed work progress schedule in Gantt chart format, materials list, subcontractors needed and for what work, your overall management approach, risk management plan, cost management plan, scheduling, resource management, control and closeout. The owner expects to hold weekly update meetings so a complete work breakdown by week will be required including all materials and subcontractors needed, and the cost of work completed each month for payment.
I expect all tables, charts (including a detailed Gantt chart), graphs, such as a WBS to be exhibits after the text.That means the text will focus on explaining, describing, etc. the appendices and describing how the numbers, details, etc in the appendices were derived. For example, if your plan calls for X amount of material, you need to provide details on how you arrived at that number and the source for your information – if your materials list calls for 200 pieces of 4 x 12 drywall, you need to show your source for how you arrived at that number using a source that tells you how to account for waste in your calculations. You will also need to provide sources for information such as the steps involved to install and finish drywall. If you have experience, or currently work in the construction industry, be sure to make it clear you are using your experience to develop a materials list, etc.
