Project Planning for Success

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” 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.

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

Additional Details

This seminar will discuss the elements of creating an efficient and organized Construction Execution 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 Construction Execution 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.

Exclusive to this workshop is a comprehensive manual that is used as a reference and guide throughout the sessions. The manual is based on accumulated knowledge gathered over 40 years in the construction industry. It is a valuable and effective tool that contains not only practical how-to’s, checklists and templates but will also be a foundation for new processes and procedures back in the office or on the jobsite.

Subcontractors, general contractors, project managers, superintendents/foremen in the construction industry.

This course is delivered in partnership between your local construction association and other associations throughout Western Canada. You’ll be participating in a cohort with industry peers from across these regions.
