How to Maintain the Construction Project Plan

Construction Tech Review | Saturday, December 11, 2021

Making a construction project plan is only a beginning, but firms need to maintain it.

FREMONT, CA: A construction plan is a set of documents that defines the needs for a construction project, like the activities, resources, schedule, and budget. Creating a construction plan is of significant importance, given that such projects tend to be large and complex. Proper and thorough construction planning increases the likelihood of a successful project. The more data the construction plan has about the project, the less likely it will be to arise during the execution phase. To make a construction plan, firms require identifying all the different aspects of the project, including the project management team, stakeholders, activities, resources requirements, scheduling, and budget.

Creating a successful plan needs a thorough understanding of the project scope. The scope of the construction project refers to all the activities that will be completed and the deliverables that will be attained with that work. Defining the project scope is vital for the construction planning process. Once firms have defined what will be done, they can think about everything they require executing the work, including the resources, budget, activity durations, scheduling, the team, etc. To help firms determine their scope, examine project timelines, historical data, and even other projects that are being executed nearby that might siphon resources from the project.

The size of the construction project will decide, to some extent, how many people are working on the project team. The project plan requires outlining these roles and defining their responsibilities concerning the project. The best means to define these roles and responsibilities is by comprising the team in the process. When creating this part of the plan, firms will have an idea of the various team members they will need to complete the project. Creating a construction plan is similar to making a plan for a project. However, while the basic structure is the same, construction needs industry-specific software beyond the normal project management tools leveraged to create and control a project.
