“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” Benjamin Franklin 

 

Effective and thorough project planning prior to commencement of work on a new site is essential to the overall success of any construction project. Often focus is mainly directed at winning the work and a rush to start the job, rarely is their adequate time given to taking the time and planning the work in advance. In general, the Construction Execution Plan answers these questions: 

  • What must be done? 

  • Who will do it? 

  • How will it be done? 

  • How long will it take? 

  • How much will it cost? 

  • What are the deliverables? 

  • How will quality be maintained? 

  • What is the schedule? 

 

Without a Construction Execution Plan, a company has planned to fail and will most likely impact profitability. 

 

This seminar will discuss the elements of creating an efficient and organized Construction Execution Plan which includes understanding scope, contractual requirements and budget, assigning the best project team, site logistics, sequence of work, schedule, project resources, and identifying risk and opportunity, etc. The Construction Execution Plan should effectively communicate, in simple language, the sequence of events required to construct the project and to meet key milestones. Once complete, it can be used to provide information to others about how the project will be managed and constructed, and as a “road map” for the project team members to identify how the project will be constructed. 

 

Exclusive to this workshop is a comprehensive manual that is used as a reference and guide throughout the sessions. The manual is based on accumulated knowledge gathered over 40 years in the construction industry. It is a valuable and effective tool that contains not only practical how-to’s, checklists and templates but will also be a foundation for new processes and procedures back in the office or on the jobsite. 

 

Important Note:This session is designed to be an interactive experience, similar to our in-person workshops. Participants should expect to interact with the instructor and other participants.  Computers or laptops with a microphone are mandatory.  This course will involve 100% on-screen interaction with your instructor and classmates, reading/viewing on-screen content like slides or videos, and interacting via typing with questions or responses. 

 

Participants will receive an email with instructions on downloading and installing the program and the participant manual a few days before the session.  The join links for the workshop will be sent to all participants 30 minutes before the scheduled start time. 

If you have not received the first email with the download instructions and manual by the day before the session, please email training@icba.ca  and a training team member will assist you. 

 

Delivery Method: Virtual Session – Adobe Connect

Course Fee Includes: Access to the course, course materials, and a digital certificate upon completion.  

 

Sharing a single registration between two or more individuals is not permitted. Please register each person that will be in attendance. 

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for this session.

Technical Requirements

  1. Computer or laptop

    • This course will involve on-screen interaction with your instructor and classmates, reading/viewing on-screen content (slides or videos), and interacting via typing with questions or responses. For this reason, cellphones may not be adequate

    • Windows 10 or Mac iOS. 

  1. Webcam (Mandatory)– in order to engage and collaborate, participants will be expected to have their webcams on for the duration of the class

  2. Microphone (Mandatory)

  3. Internet connection- For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here. The minimum recommended speed is 1.5 Mbps, but anything below 3 Mbps may result in loss of quality or buffering. Ideally hardwired connection versus wireless for stability - connect your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable, rather than using your home wi-fi.

  4. A quiet space with minimal distractions –The microphone will be engaged for interactive sessions. Please plan to be fully engaged in the class and clear your work schedule just as you would for the in-class program.

  5. Comfortable chair

This session would be beneficial for subcontractors, general contractors, project managers, superintendents/foremen in the construction industry. 

What Previous Participants Have Said

“Lee is very engaging & knowledgeable.” 

Lee was very knowledgeable and did a stellar job presenting the information! Extremely informative course and would recommend to anyone interested or involved in this field of work.”  

Very well spoken and knowledgeable about the course and her own experience. I would recommend Project Coordinators. I think they would benefit most to know how a project should be set up effectively.
