Vehicle Maintenance Facility Case Study<br/>Vehicle Maintenance Facility

project is a hypothetical corporate vehicle maintenance facility, and is designed to contain features that are typical in small‐scale commercial buildings.
The contract itself is assumed to be a fixed‐price, fixed‐scope arrangement between an owner and a general contractor. All code and zoning approvals have been obtained, and construction can begin immediately upon receipt of the notice to proceed.
The site is located on a city street in an industrial park. The existing slope of the site is minimal, and bringing the site to finish grade does not require large amounts of excavation. The site plan contains a large parking lot to allow for vehicle parking and movement during servicing. The paving is asphalt over graded aggregate base with concrete curb and gutter, and runoff is handled by catch basins and 18‐inch corrugated metal pipe storm drains.
The building itself contains two main areas, which are a high bay space for actual vehicle servicing, and an attached office and training area. The structure of both spaces consists of CMU walls with steel joist roof structures, with concrete floors.
The vehicle servicing area is designed for handling pickup trucks and light vans. It has four service bays with roll‐up doors at both ends, and a service pit under two of the bays which allows easier access to the underside of vehicles. Also, the servicing area contains vehicle lifts, oil and lube, coolant and air conditioning service equipment, as well electrical and pneumatic power outlets. Heating of this space is done with suspended gas‐fired heating units.Compressed air is provided by an air compressor located in an adjacent room.
The office and training area is finished space, with steel studs and gypsum wall partitions, suspended ceilings, and varied floor finishes. In addition to finished office and classroom space, this area contains restrooms, a locker room, and an employee break room. All doors are hollow metal with standard commercial hardware, with the exception of the front entrance, which is commercial storefront.
The heating and cooling of the office areas is done using two systems, each consisting of exterior condenser unit, plus air handling units in a dedicated room, and ductwork mounted above the suspended ceiling. In addition to standard power and lighting, the building has modern voice and data systems, as well as a wired fire alarm system.

Assessment 1-Part B
1-1) Scope management planning

-Describe the entire scope of the work including project background, a list of specific project goals, deliverables, constraints and assumptions, and additional milestones.
-Create Work Breakdown Structure (at least three levels) for the project. It is pertinent to mention that the project name is considered as the level zero.1-2) Project scheduling

-Construct an original Gantt chart for the project using project activities given in Table 1.
-Conduct a critical path analysis and carefully apply the 3-point estimate technique on identified critical activities to develop an estimated project schedule. It is assumed that the critical activities can be completed 20% faster in a risk-free environment. On the other hand, without an appropriate risk management, the durations of critical activities creep by 40%
-Perform a final schedule analysis using the results obtained from project scheduling conducted in the previous stages.
-Assessment 2-Part B2-1) Cost management planning

-Apply a diverse set of cost estimating tools to justify the cost of activities
-Develop and aggregate the cost of resources needed to complete each activity and determine the detailed budget of the project. Your cost estimate must incorporate at least two resources given in Table 3 for each given activity. Both cost estimate and a budget baseline must be produced in alignment with the estimated project schedule.
-Develop the cost management planning components of your Cost Management Plan.
-The cost management plan must include Earn Value Analysis (EVA) as a compulsory cost control tool to be utilised along with other cost control tools in this project. The application of EVA must be clearly demonstrated.

Quality management planning
Develop the quality management planning components of your Quality Management Plan.
Apply a quality management framework to ensure the project performance is consistent with the quality management plan.
