A basic project plan covers the high points – you will know what’s involved, how it’s done, who does it, and when things should happen. But project planning takes on an entirely different scope when you consider the importance of structural security. Every part of the building, whether it’s a garage or a skyscraper, has to meet code and be structurally sound for years to come. Basic is simple, but simple has no place in the construction project planning world because of the level of detail required for a successful project completion.
Scrap the Simple Project Plan
A simple project plan would be written similar to this:
- Objectives and Goals
- Risk Management
- Breakdown of Project to-do Lists
Wouldn’t it be incredible if every project was that simple? Okay, no, none of us really want to manage simple, basic structures, right? Most project managers want to manage projects that will make an incredible impact in some way whether it solves a housing situation or creates an amazing architectural piece of art.
Your Project is Unique
One of the major things to keep in mind is that your project truly is one of a kind. It may resemble other projects in the effect that it is a multi-family housing unit or hotel, but some parts will be entirely unique. Here are a few examples:
- Your construction workers aren’t likely the same workers that worked on other projects.
- You’re probably using different materials in certain areas of the project.
- You’ve probably hired your own construction project manager.
