Project stages

A project may consist of one or more stages depending on the size of the project, its nature and client needs. Each stage has several tasks. 

Possible stages of a project are the following:

Stage 1: Preliminary Planning Stage 

The preliminary planning of the project will include (but not limited to) the following items

Preparing Project Information Sheet. This sheet will have all the necessary information about the project to start such as (client requirements, survey file).

Preparing project stages

Preparing tasks and subtasks in the project 

Identifying order of execution of each task within same discipline and within all disciplines

Assign engineers in charge of each task

Assigning man-hour for each task

Sending to the client the “Client Requirement” form for completion

Sending to client preliminary request of information (RFI)

Prepare preliminary list of drawings (Prepare what is called tentative list of drawings. On weekly basis you update the list of drawing. As approaching the end of project, the list becomes almost final. It is important when you prepare your tentative list to do your best to be as accurate as possible. Your list should be expandable, i.e. you add new drawings without changing drawing number and titles of drawings that were before in the list.)

Prepare forms to be used in project

In this stage, the design is further developed until it reaches completion by having client approval without any comments to reach final design.

Stage 4: working drawing Stage
