Defining how a project will be executed can be just as important as how a project will be built. As a contractor or construction manager it’s important for you to define how you and the teams around you will operate. The best way of defining these roles is through a project execution plan. But what exactly is a construction project execution plan and how is it used?
A project execution plan is a document which is developed at the start of a construction project which outlines the framework for a project to follow. It outlines the roles and responsibilities of the various parties and how critical components of a project will be managed.
The project execution plan is typically developed by the project team. This can include the general contractor, architect, owner and other key stakeholders.
So what is included in a good project management plan?
- Project overview
