Formulate a project that will provide a solution to an identified problem.
Manage a project within agreed timescales and specifications; documenting the
Evaluate potential project management solutions.
Produce a project report and deliver a presentation of the final project
The aim of this report is that you have
been asked to prepare a project report with a presentation of the solution of
an identified and clearly defined civil engineering problem. Your approach to
this should involve exploring different potential options that may be
available, then make a choice and show how you have come to your conclusion.
This assignment has four sections in line
with the four learning outcomes covered by all tasks provided starting with
an initial project problem identification scenario acting as a case study to
be explored for a solution in line with your chosen topic :
Sustainability in the construction industry
area: “The influence
of construction method
on project sustainability”
(a) Project Identification: Identify and explore a construction
based problem following the theme stated above and select a project aimed at
its solution. (Suitable themes could range from replacing cement in concrete to
substitution of virgin materials by recycled ones, better timing of the
sequence of operations to increase productivity and reduce general
(b) Research Methods Background reading to
see how others have tackled similar problems.
Sources could include journal articles, articles in trade publications,
newspapers, information from work or observation of construction processes. It
may even be possible to undertake primary research to test if something works.
(c) Feasibility studies Test the alternative approaches
suggested for the construction process to ensure that they work within the
context of a given construction situation.
Here comparison with similar processes given in published work would be
of great assistance.
(d) Brief and Specification Produce an outline specification of the
proposal and critically evaluate how

part of your project scope identify the potential resources needed, costs,
personnel and timescales involved.
and describe a range of techniques for potential solutions and stating them
clearly indicating the costs and cost planning involve.

and resource tracking include work plans possibly using Gantt Charts, Project
Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT) charts or Critical Path Method (CPM)
LO3 Evaluate potential
Project Management Solutions

initial stated project

costs with your actual outcomes of these criteria. This will contribute your performance review.

conclusions and make key recommendations that would further assist you to
improve your performance in the future and clearly stating these in both your
report and in your presentation. Learning Outcome and Assessment Criteria
