Benjamin Franklin

Effective and thorough project planning prior to commencement of work on a new site is essential to the overall success of any construction project. Often focus is mainly directed at winning the work and a rush to start the job, rarely is there adequate time given to taking the time and planning the work in advance.

In general, the Project Work Plan answers these questions:

  • What must be done?
  • Who will do it?
  • How will it be done?
  • How long will it take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are the deliverables?
  • How will quality be maintained?
  • What is the schedule?

Without a Project Work Plan, a company has planned to fail and will most likely impact profitability.

This full-day seminar will discuss the elements of creating an efficient and organized Project Work Plan which includes: understanding scope, contractual requirements and budget, assigning the best project team, site logistics, sequence of work, schedule, project resources and identifying risk and opportunity etc.. The Project Work Plan should effectively communicate, in simple language, the sequence of events required to construct the project and to meet key milestones. Once complete, it can be used to provide information to others about how the project will be managed and constructed, and as a “road map” for the project team members to identify how the project will be constructed.

In addition, participants will be engaged in creating a plan using “Project Milestone Planning”.  At the start of a construction project the project team will identify certain “milestone” dates to regroup to assess the success of the Project Work Plan to that point, what is working, what is not and to revisit the Plan for the work to be accomplished to the next milestone.

Who should attend:

Trade Contractors, General Contractors, Project Managers, Superintendents/Foreman.
