PREPARATION FOR CONSTRUCTION PHASE
Preparing for construction is an important phase in the total project cycle. It is necessary to address in this phase, the scope of work, cost estimation, schedule, type of contracts, procurement plan, tender package(s), communication plan, documents organization, commissioning plan and permits, among others. In this phase, we use the Risk Plan as a tool with the Client in order to adjust the project expectations.
The preconstruction depends on how detailed are the phases of design and preparation for construction and preceds the construction. Preliminary works on site are performed as cleaning, earthworks, temporary facilities and even retaining walls. The general contractor and/or subcontractors are selected. Detailed design (shop drawings), specifications review, procurement review, quality plan, HSE plan, firmed cost and schedule, are the major activities in this phase.
A good construction depends on a good performance of the previous phases. From a lean construction point of view, the scope of contract, in the short term plan, must mobilize materials, people and machinery in order to guarantee continuous flow of work.
