The Construction Process
A design, once approved by the client, is the first step in the construction process. A project’s purpose is often the determining factor of its design. Moreover, the design must be structurally sound and appropriate for its use. This means that it must be feasible to build and use. It also must be legal. As a result, the construction process must be based on a financial structure. The legal structure can help integrate the design and construction process with other business activities, such as hiring specialists.
When the planning phase is complete, the general contractor breaks ground for the construction phase. During the construction process, the contractor ensures that stakeholders are kept informed and satisfied. A construction project may involve several phases. The final stage is when the building is officially handed over to the owner. The transfer of management is the most important part of construction. The new owner should be given all the project information, such as close-out documents, warranties, as-builts, and closed-ledgers. It is also the time when insurance must be changed. Some owners are trained on permanent property insurance to avoid liability problems.
In addition to the design phase, the construction phase involves many activities. The sequencing of the tasks, lead times, and legislative issues are all important. The implementation of the design phase must be well planned, as any change will result in unforeseen complications. This is especially true if the project is large. Once a design is approved, the construction phase should include the actual building. The building phase also includes a host of other activities that affect the quality of the finished product.
Institutional and commercial construction is another important area for the construction industry. These projects usually require a team that will develop a unique design, but will disband after the project is complete. This can make it difficult to develop new ideas, since the same team may not work on the same project again. Even worse, lessons learned during the construction phase will be transferred to other projects. The final stages of the project will depend on how well the team works together and how well they communicate with each other.
A construction project requires the proper planning process to ensure the success of the project. It is essential to understand local regulations and make sure all the work is legal. A successful construction manager will carefully track all of their key performance indicators. These are the goals of the project, the materials used, and the time required for completion. The goal of every construction project is to maximize the construction’s potential. In order to achieve this, the team must coordinate and follow the planning process.
Procurement is a crucial component of the construction industry. The project manager will source materials, purchase and transport them. In addition to sourcing and purchasing materials, they will also have to coordinate with other team members. While this is a key aspect of the construction process, it is also essential to keep track of critical performance indicators such as objectives, quality, and time. However, many challenges can arise while the construction process is underway.
