ENGINEERING – PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Specification of services
Project management is generally a system of theoretical and practical management, knowledge and skills usually including planning, organizing, coordinating, controlling, decision making and leading all components participating in the project aiming at the maximum satisfaction of a client.

Project realisation phases may be defined as follows:
  1. development of planning reference documents
  2. development of land use planning documentation
  3. development of a feasibility study
  4. architectural design
  5. development of documentation for planning permission including procurement of a decision on location of the project
  6. development of documentation for building permission including provision of building permission
  7. development of execution documentation
  8. development of tender documents
  9. tender
  10. contracting the main contractor
  11. construction management from the position of a project manager
  12. cooperation during completion
When preliminaries end, that is after building permission is issued, contract of work worked out with the contractor, and execution projects are developed the project manager does in the first place the following:
  1. manages and coordinates all participants in construction, that is the architect, contractor, price consultant, technical resident surveyor, architect’s supervisor and others who may also take part in the process of construction;
  2. deals with public authorities in order to solve problems related to realisation of the project
  3. procures, controls and manages activities supporting client’s interest, that is the technical resident surveyor, architect’ supervisor, etc., and legal support and price consultancy, if necessary;
  4. consistently follows the client information system – regular reporting on progress on site, management and organisation of site meetings, etc.;
  5. controls progress on site in respect of time, quality and financing;
  6. coordinates and deals with emergencies, project changes, etc.;
  7. prepares all necessary papers and documents for investor’s decision making in matters that do not belong among competencies of the authorised project manager and particularly matters related to changes of prices and deadlines;
  8. represents the owner at the takeover and in compliance with the contract for work with the contractor, physically controls the completed work including hand-over documents;
  9. cooperates with the client in course of completion of the project – Certificate of Completion. Assessment of the project, completion of documentation, etc.
The project manager therefore represents the owner based on and in the extent of his authorisation in relation to all participants in construction in order to perform and complete the Work within the range and quality specified in the contract for work and other documents so that all client’ requirements and interests would be met in every respect.
