Unformatted text preview: Project and Construction Management Project and Construction Management Lecture #21 Lecture #21 Pre Pre-Construction Operations Construction Operations- Setting up Operations at the Field Office id Advertising Date (Notice Inviting Bids)- Bid Advertising Date (Notice Inviting Bids)- Bid Opening Date- Bid Award Date- Signing of the Agreement- Notice to Proceed Luis Prieto-Portar 2010 Introduction. One of the first tasks of the RPR ( RE ) is to prepare a project organizational diagram that shows: 1) The names of the principal people involved, and their titles; 2) Clearly define the levels of responsibilities and authority; 3) Show the contractual relationships between members with lines, etc; 4) Provide telephone numbers / E-mail addresses / assistant’s name, etc; This organizational chart should be posted at the field office and sent to all the project members off-site. These members will be involved in the five phases of the pre- construction operations: 1. Advertise and award . This includes the pre-bid meeting and the site visitation; 2. Establish the field office . Administration and quality assurance for the owner; 3. Planning . Performed from the field office; 4. Construction surveillance and inspection . This includes CQC programs; 5. Pre-Construction Conference . Constructability Analysis. Constructability means that the design is locally constructible . This may surprise many, but designers may be unfamiliar with the difficulties of the jobsite. This is especially true in the traditional project, where the design phase is separated from the construction phase. The ideal constructability model is the design-build (DB) and even better, in design-build-operate (DBO) projects, because the contractor and the designers are working in concert. If the RPR ( RE ) is involved before design begins, they should try to bring construction expertise into full participation in the design process and into the entire project planning. The project team now becomes a constructability team , which is active in an integrated planning phase and in the design development. During the initial process, all alternatives to each aspect of the project can be discussed and jointly evaluated. Many in the design team will learn of the constraints of a jobsite, and tailor the drawings to more practical solutions. The construction experts will learn from the designers of the code requirements, the compromises required between the different disciplines, etc. The Advertise and Award Phase. The second task of the RPR ( RE ) is to very carefully read the contract documents. At this stage, any discrepancies discovered can be rectified by the designers without affecting the construction phase. The errors and omissions found can be fixed through the issuance of an addendum to the specifications prior to the bid opening date....
