A) WBS diagram: (4 marks)
Draw a diagram or write a hierarchical list showing WBS from level 1 (Project) to the deliverable Level 2 and 3,level 3 is to be the location and stage identification which is going to be the base for your work packages tasks .
B) Work Package list (7 marks)
Create a list of work packages, being tasks which will produce your deliverables from level 2 and 3 Link the deliverables with the work packages. The detailed submission of work packages should include cover at least 5 elements applicable to the construction phase of this project, except P&G, margins and preliminaries however you should include mobilisation items. Use the provided Rawlinsons elemental break down to assist in the definition of the construction elements.
Q2.1a and b may be included on the same diagram if required
C) Written part (4 marks)

Submission and Format – Microsoft office suite
Submit the WBS diagram and Work Package list 2.1 A, as one file on the due date, fit all the content onto one page. A4 or A3.
Include the WBS diagram and Work package list 2.1A and 2.1B, as part of the final submission part 2.5, as Appendix 1.

2.2 TASK DURATIONS (15 marks) Submission 9.00am Monday 22 August 2016 via Moodle
A) Task duration spread sheet: (10 Marks) make up your own template
Calculate task durations for the least 20 different tasks. For the rest of the tasks you can use your best estimate.
For your calculations use a rough measurement of the quantities. Consider the actual work sequence and possible construction zones for each task i.e. you might need to divide one task to several ones because of the sequence or zones, if you have not already done this in the previous stage. Use published work rates or labour constants from (Rawlinson s NZ Construction Handbook). Assumption of work rates may be necessary where there are no available data. Indicate when you have used an assumption instead of published data and explain what your assumption is based on.
Ensure you reference your source of labour rates.
The chosen twenty task durations are to be presented in spreadsheet format. Present the quantities, labour constants and labour resources using appropriate formulas and units. This is to include appropriate level of detail. Demonstrate appropriate judgement in selecting gang size of workers/tradesmen. For the rest of the tasks, duration only is required.
B) Written part: (5 marks)
Explain your calculations in general. (300 words)Submission and file type: MS office
Submit the Task duration spreadsheet in any suitable file and format on the due date.
Include the Task duration spreadsheet 2.2A as part of your report 2.5, as Appendix 2.
Include and submit the written part 2.2B as part of the report 2.5, as Chapter 2.
2.3 CONSTRUCTION METHODOLOGY (25 marks) Submission Monday 29 August 9.00 am 2016 via Moodle
A) Construction methodology statement: (20 marks)
Prepare a proposed construction methodology statement to communicate the work methods and sequence to the client and to demonstrate the anticipated work sequence and staging. It is permissible to use the construction methodology sample as provided but will include the headings only as per the construction methodology template, all other details must be as applicable to this project.
Analysis the project and select appropriate methodology, which clearly addresses the issues and the specific requirements of this project
Describe logical construction sequence
List out the resource requirements to include material, labour and plants/equipment, and other items as appropriate
List out the main site set up requirements
Use diagrams, images and details to assist in developing logical construction sequence, and communicate understanding of the project methodology
Use correct terminology
Do not include duration; methodology is about sequence and description only.
B) Written part: (5 marks)
Describe the reasoning and logic behind your intended sequence of construction and the selection of your methodology. (400 words)
Submission and file type:
Submit the Construction methodology statement as a separate file on the due date.
Include the Construction methodology statement 2.3 A as part of the report 2.5, as Appendix 3. You are encouraged to make necessary changes to these based on the feedback.
Include and submit the written part 2.3B, as part of the report 2.5, as Chapter 3.
2.4 CONTRACT CONSTRUCTION PROGRAMME (35 marks) Submission 9.00 am
5 Sept 2016 via Moodle
A) Contract construction programme: (25 marks)
Create a linked bar chart (Gantt chart) for your construction programme by using MS Project.
Use appropriate timescales, showing logical construction sequence; appropriate task overlaps; milestones, all tasks linked showing the critical path(s). Show lead times for appropriate activities. Task durations in accordance with Q2.2. Use Gantt chart wizard to identify task bars.
A single line flow of activities (where there are no overlaps of activities) is not acceptable. Don’t leave any open ends. (Dangling tasks) Do not go back in time. (Looping)
The critical path must be evident. Use the programming feedback sheets as provided on Moodle to improve the quality of your submission.
Start your project with award of contract; and end project with date of practical completion.
B) Written part: (10 marks) 800 words
Discuss the reasoning behind your construction programme and evaluate the strengths and risks of your programming solution. As a prudent project manage explain the provision for any contingencies deemed necessary .Discuss the whole process from start of construction to completion of the construction programme and the benefits of good planning and purpose of programming.
