1.0 Project background

This project plan is intended to give guidance on the major steps and tasks that are developed to guide he construction of the dream home.  Earlier on, the project design had been presented to the sponsor so that the sponsor can get an understanding of all the tasks that will be performed and the cost that the project will incur. The planned project of the house will be located in Los Angeles specifically at the forefront of Lake Calabas which means more risk associated with the location.  The budget that was earlier on presented to the sponsor of the project is totaling to $300,000 which is assumed that it will be enough for the whole project.  There are set deadlines for the project accomplishment whereby quality will be keenly followed.  Since the project is a small scale home, the contractor has promised that there will be minimal risks that are associated with the project.  There are high expectations of much accountability in the project management and funds so as to avoid any losses.  Additionally, there are high expectations of the project to follow the guidelines of the plan keenly so as to come up with the required dream home picture. Since the funds are already allocated for various tasks, the suppliers of various construction materials will have supplied the most necessary materials earlier before the construction works kick starts.  All the costs are estimated according to the changing trends of the construction materials and labor costs. There are deliverables for the project which are keenly examined to make sure that the project is completed within the set deadlines. Additionally, the deliverables take great care for the budgets.  The project has undergone various milestones such as being approved by the relevant authorities.  Various stakeholders like the home owner and the design architect who will act as a team leader are involved.  There are others involved with the various tasks at various levels of construction.  Some of the payments have already been made and schedules for the ongoing project are already constructed.


2.0 Project scope

The project will entirely allow the homeowner to be involved in the construction of his home since it is their dream home.  Additionally, the construction of the home will be like the original plan of the architect. The set budgets will be used appropriately so as tom avoid shortages or shortcomings of not finishing the project.  The exterior décor will have external lighting that covers all the compound for security purposes.  The building will have three stories so as to accommodate the large family members and home assistants. There will be other two buildings like the gate house and the servant’s quarter located away from the main house. Every stage of the construction will be finished before going to the next stage so as to allow for repairs and damages. The engineer will ensure that there are minimal demolitions during the construction.  The main house will have six bedrooms which will all be master bedrooms. There will be proper floor décor with the wooden tiles which will be brown in color. The ceiling boards will be painted white in color following the designs provided by the interior artist. The walls will be colored differently also going as per the guidelines of the designer. Inclusive of the rooms are the sitting rooms, family room, kitchen, store and the video room for the family members. Additionally, there will be an inbuilt swimming pool. The outer room of the building will include the dog’s cage and the home garage. There will be balconies only in the first floor.

3.0.1 Task A.  Excavation of black cotton soil

Excavation will be the first activity of constructing the dream home. It will start from the pits for the building foundations and is expected to continue up to the handing over of the project.  The materials to be used for the earthwork foundation are: spade, Kassi, pick axe, crow bar, Rammer, wedge, boning rod, basket, iron pan, line and pins. There are drawings required such as the center line drawing and also the layout plan. The size of the foundation will also be determined so as to know the depth of the building, which is 4’’ 0’’.  The depth for the partition walls will be 2’’0’’.  The excavation will have various activities. They include: setting out of corner benchmarks, survey for ground levels, survey for top levels, excavation to the approved depth, dressing of loose soil, making up to cut off level, construction of dewatering wells and interconnecting trenches, making building boundaries, construction of the construction bunds and drains. The procedure to be followed is as follows; searching the extent of soil and rock strata by making trial pits in the construction site. The excavation and depth will be decided according to the following guidelines in the site.

i). for Isolated footings, the depth will be one and half times the foundation width

ii). for adjacent footings with clear spacing less twice the width (I.e.) one and half times the length

iii). 1.5m in general and 3.5m in black cotton soils

There will be setting out of the excavation lines and center lines on the ground before starting the excavation. Marking of the longest center line of the building will be marked on the ground by stretching a string on wooden pegs. Each peg may be projected about 35 mm from the ground level and 2 m from the excavation edge. The boundaries will be marked with lime powder.  The center lines of the other walls will be marked perpendicular to the longer walls.  Later on, a right angle will be formed by forming 3, 4, and 5 triangles. Similarly, outer lines of the foundation trenches of each will cross walls and thus setting out.

During the removal of excess soils, there will be estimations of the excavated stuff which will be utilized in filling, gardening, preparing roads and many other tasks. As far as possible, the contractor will try to carry excavation and simultaneous filling so as to avoid double handling. The required materials will be selected and stacked in such a place where it will not obstruct other construction activities. The excess and unwanted materials will be immediately carried away and disposed off by trucks.  After removing the excess soils, there will be excavation quality checks.  These quality checks include; recording the initial ground level and checking the bottom size, disposal of unsuitable material for filling, stacking suitable material for backfilling to avoid double handling, strata classification approval by a competent authority, dressing bottom and sides of pits as per drawing with respect to the center line, necessary safety measures observed will be taken.  Thereafter, there will be quality checks for filling. They include; recording initial ground level, there will be approval of samples for back filling, necessary marking, backfilling will be carried out in layers of 15cm to 20cm, required watering to enable compaction, and achievement of the required density.

7.0 Risk registry

WBS Risk Description Likelihood Impact Strategy Response
Task A Digging deeper The excavation may go beyond the required risk Because the building is near a lake thus there is likelihood of soil being water logged. Using more excavation funds Be ready to allocate more funds and time for excavation Added more funds for the task to avoid the ask deralying the project.
Task E More labor may be required Since the excavation to build the foundation may require many workers. If the dug pits go beyond the normal depths more funds for the project required Allocate more funds before the task kick starts More funds allocated
