Planning the project is probably the most important part of the project management process. When I say planning I’m not just talking about preparing the schedule or program which is an important part of the planning process. I’m talking about developing the overall construction methodology, deciding how you going to build it, who you going to use, what equipment will be needed and what materials will be used.
Many problems encountered during construction are a result of poor planning. Spending more time on planning the project can often result in a faster and smoother construction process. Proper planning can improve safety, quality and resource utilisation.
