Furthermore, building projects depend on the interaction of various members of a team in order to be successful (Smith, 2004). A project requires complicated assessments, evaluations and decision making and performance throughout the project from inception through to completion. The probability of successfulness is highly dependent on the suitability of these decisions and actions in relation to the characteristics of the project. These decisions can affect the efficiency of the project, the cost of the project, the party who is liable for certain risks and numerous other significant features of the project. The objective of this project is to examine a number of key stages within the Hertfordshire School of Construction building project and arrive at decisions and/or define vital elements of the project which are deemed most suitable. Any decisions reached is done so by Alpha construction Ltd through regular meetings to examine and discuss the options that are available to the client at each stage and evaluate their suitability before reaching a group decision on the methods of performances that should be used or the elements which should be included in the project along with supportive evidence or research. ________________ The Project outline ________________ 1. ...read more.

Conclusion

Despite this the group considered that Theme 2 was handled objectively and judiciously. Theme 3 This involves mainly the contract administration also including variations and the delays to the works. The method of procurement used for the project gives a limited chance for variation to the project to occur. This is due to the fact that the client appoints his agent at the inception stage of the design for their knowledge in the type of work in hand. The agent, the client and contractor being appointed and working from the early stage of the design limits the possibilities of variation arising. However, contract provisions are required to deal with variations, despite that the occurrence of variations may be unlikely or seldom. As a result of extensively analysing the situation the relevant clauses that were required to deal with such situations were identified. As a result the contract would provide all the necessary provisions which would be required to deal with the occurrence of such an event. The procedures identified where through adequate research undertaken from a majority of sources thus indicative that the procedures documented is most likely to be the actual standard procedures which should be taken in practice to comply with the clauses. Overall In essence the group considers that they have approached, managed and executed the project with a satisfactorily rational and conscientious manner. The extensive research undertaken has allowed the group to have understood the themes well thus allowing them to achieve the requirements set upon them. The decisions taken have been reached upon the basis of that which is the most advantageous and beneficial to all participating parties but especially to the Hertfordshire School of Construction Ltd Buildings. A further criterion used for the basis of choosing a particular option is that it maintains the good working relationship between the participating parties which is mandatory for the success of the project which is the core to all building work. ...read more.
