|Learner instructions||This task requires you to manage on-site operations including the supply of materials, plant and equipment, and progress payments. Refer to the Task Details, for further information. For this task you will: Complete it individually.Complete and submit by a due date set by your assessor. If you have any questions about the task or concerns about your ability to complete the task, please discuss this with your assessor.|
For this project you will demonstrate the skills required to manage a building project. To do this, you will:
- Establish and manage a process for ordering, receiving, checking and safely stacking and protecting materials, and for selecting, hiring and maintaining plant and equipment.
- Maintain a safe and cost-effective work environment
- Manage and coordinate human resources according to company policies and procedures
- Deal with problems and delays
- Manage industrial relations
- Manage variations in schedule
- Monitor, analyse and report on operational procedures for continuous improvement
- Facilitate variations to building plan and specifications while meeting contractual and legal obligations
- Manage progress payment claims and payments according to contract and scheduled projected costs.
You may complete this assessment in the workplace or simulated workplace. Both must meet the evidence requirements outlined in the assessment checklist.
The management of the build will be based on scenario and site procedures established in Assessment 2.
You work for a construction company that specialises in residential housing.
You have been allocated the responsibility for establishing site procedures and managing the construction of a residential property. You have now established site procedures and this assessment covers the build stage including:
- Establishing and managing processes for ordering, receiving, checking and safely stacking and protecting materials, and for selecting, hiring and maintaining plant and equipment.
- Managing variations in schedule
- Managing progress payment claims and payments according to contract and scheduled projected costs
The residential property is based on the plans, specification and contract the Smith residence. In managing the build, you will need to access these plans and interpret the requirements of this specific build.
For the purposes of this assessment, the location of the build will be based on the local council in which you currently live. This will differ from the location listed in the plans and specifications. The scenario is that the company has been contracted to build the same house but in a different location. This location will be based on the local government area in which you live.
For example, if you live in Reservoir, the council is City of Darebin, and the project must be built to meet the requirements for managing a residential construction project in that specific local council. In addition, Victorian state and Australian federal legislative and regulatory requirements must be met.
For the purposes of this assessment, there are a number of specifics regarding the proposed building site that must be considered when managing the build. Several time-sensitive events occur during the build that require your response. These are outlined below under Variations, and also in the Project Worksheet. Work through the Project Worksheet step-by-step to ensure these events occur in sequence as specified by the step number.
It is common for building companies to maximise reassurance in a smooth, predictable and controlled construction process by maintaining close working relationships with specific contractors. These contractors often work in specific ways or specialise in certain products or building approaches that are not always known by the building designers, structural engineers or surveyors. Sometimes the specialisation is a different approach to the one specified in the plans and specifications. When this happens, a company can look to vary the building approach. There can be benefits to this; for example, the alternative approach may have time and financial benefits to ensure a project is delivered on-time and within budget. To achieve this variation, the building manager will need to follow company quality management processes and seek approval from all parties involved – the client, the engineer and the building surveyor – to ensure the variation meets contractual requirements, maintains structural integrity, and where necessary, building permits are modified/re-issued for approval.
Complete the following worksheet. Change table cell size to suit. Insert your responses and submit by the due date, along with any additional documentation required.
|1||Establish and manage a process for ordering and handling materials for the Smith Residence. Create a document that explains with detail what is required at each stage of ordering, receiving, checking, stacking and protecting the materials on site. For the purposes of this assessment, you will focus on two materials for the Smith Residence: Roof sheetingPlasterboard Ensure the process clearly identifies: the type of materials requiredthe appropriate quantitiesthe order (sequence) of deliverythe requirements for receiving and checking on sitethe requirements for storage and protection of the materials on site Explain here how you will monitor and manage this process, and how it will be communicated. Submit the process as a separate document.|
|2||Refer to your Site Management Plan (SMP) and in particular, sections relating to licensing and legal obligations for hiring plant and equipment. Outline here a procedure for selecting, hiring and maintaining plant and equipment.|
|3||The build is falling behind schedule. Using your knowledge of construction and structural integrity, study the plans, specification and contract for the Smith residence. Find at least one possible|
|variation to the structure that could be achieved by another building approach that will ensure quality, save time, and keep within cost. You recommend this variation because you have a regular contractor who specialises in this approach and it will save time and money. Explain the following in detail: The specific variation. How the variation meets (or improves) the structural integrity requirements of the build specified in the project plans, specifications and contractThe quality management process required to propose, seek approval and confirm variation, and how this is documented and reported.Changes required to the schedule to accommodate the variationRisks associated with the variation, and what contingencies are available to manage these.How the variation impacts upon human resources and subcontractor requirements, and how this is managed. Identify potential industrial relations issues and how they are managed.How the variation impacts upon the site management plan, specifically the schedule, and how required changes to maintain contractual obligations are communicated.|
|4||While the build is progressing, you are asked to manage two other projects with start times that will overlap with the current build.|
|Explain in detail the significance of managing multiple sites to maintain contact agreements, to maintain a stable workforce, to avoid schedule delays and to ensure all workplaces remain operational, effective and safe.Include a model of how multiple sites can be managed by mapping three projects against each other using key stages of construction as the basis, and explain how the overlaps work.What are the risks associated with multiple active construction sites?|
|5||Study the contract section relating to progress payments. Assume the total contract amount is $550,000. Select one of the key progress payment points. Compose an email to the client informing them that the stage (the one you have selected) has been completed. List ALL the work that would be required to confirm that the stage is complete, and confirm that this has occurred. Indicate the progress payment required for the stage completed. Set terms and other conditions as dictated by the contract.The progress payment from the client is late. Explain the range of consequences and impact upon the project triggered by late payment of progress payment.|
|What actions are available to you to seek payment? c. You have received a claim for payment against the completion of window installations. Using your knowledge of the Smith Residence plans and requirements under VBA Guidelines for Standards and Tolerances, what action do you take to check the claim and approve payment?|
