One Problem You May Come Across at the Beginning of Almost Every Construction Project
Particularly in the construction industry, contracts are often awarded very late. Nevertheless, employers often expect the almost immediate commencement of works execution or the schedule may even call for it while the probably still incomplete project management team is busy with mobilization. Additionally the project management plan and it's subsidiary plans have to be written, to be completed or to be updated, reports, registers, and forms must be drawn up or must be adopted in accordance with various stakeholder requirements and general management processes are to be implemented.
The Best Way to Solve the Problem
- Delay the commencement of works.
Possibly not the best idea even if the contract or its annexes such as the schedule baseline or milestone list may allow for it. Too often during the contract negotiations promises have been made to start work execution immediately.
- Don't care much about mobilization.
Mobilization of resources also depends on the agreed schedule baseline or milestone list. However, the mobilization duration all too often anyway is underestimated or was reduced too far during the negotiation of the contract.
- Load extra tasks on existing resources
It is very likely that the project team is anyway still incomplete. That consequently means that team members are probably already loaded with extra tasks.
- Work overtime
Overtime work should be a tool for the project manager to react flexibly to certain circumstances and should not be used if avoidable.
