Project Plan Green Family Garage Executive Summary Describe project background and business objectives The background of this project starts with the purchase of a new home for the Green family. The Green’s purchased a home without a garage. Quickly realizing the need for a garage, Mrs. Green began the project planning. There was a partially developed land space already on the property. This made planning easier, and saved a small amount of money. The business objective for this project was a large need for a garage to provide storage for three vehicles, motorcycle, and provide a workshop area for Mr. Green. Added value for any future resale or appraisal is a secondary objective for building the garage. Defines project scope in a clear and concise manner The scope of this project includes three phases; planning, foundation building, and garage building. Mrs. Green, also the owner and project manager begins and coordinates the planning in the beginning of the project planning phase. The project manager found and hired the contractor to build the foundation wall, she also located the correct garage online, and hired the electrician. In partnership with the contractor; the gravel, concrete, foundation stones, and heavy equipment were chosen. The contractor purchased any other items needed to complete phase two prior to the beginning of the phase. Lighting, doors, switches, outlets, garage openers, and steps were chosen by the project manager during this phase. Revised to accommodate PMBOK® 4 th edition 2
Project Plan Green Family Garage The second phase of the project consisted of building the foundation. The contractor coordinated this phase by communicating with the stone, gravel, concrete, and crane company. Materials for the final phase were also ordered for prompt delivery. The final phase of the project was completed by the garage company. This company was responsible for building the garage, installing windows and doors, gutters, and buried down spouts. After the garage was built the electrician started working on wiring for the lights, outlets, and garage door opener. For this project, it is assumed that the designated area for the garage is ready for building due to its partially prepped, smaller space. A constraint may be the time of year this project is performed. The weather may make it difficult to stay within the timeline. Another possible constraint is damage to the septic tank located just behind the proposed garage location. This project is dependent on the weather, materials, and availability of the contractors involved.
