Assessment aims: You are an ‘up and coming’ construction and project management organisation having been asked to help a high-profile client, Innovation Inc., to plan a complex construction project, Canada Tower, in Central Business District in the City of Birmingham, UK. You need to produce an ‘early-stage’ summary construction strategy (Report 1) and a risk assessment (Report 2).

Task description: The proposal is for a mixed-use development including a 49- storey, 150m tall residential tower with a 9-storey podium which includes market rental housing, commercial uses, and a childcare facility. There is also a six-storey building providing retail and office space.

The project area is 60670 m2, including:

• 39465 m2 strata residential • 6340 m2 rental residential • 6300 m2 retail • 5935 m2 office space • 650 m2 childcare

The client is very keen on innovation; they do not need to choose the cheapest first cost option, they are after a high-quality end product.

The client’s project manager who is assessing the report has a good knowledge of construction techniques and therefore you should not concentrate on basic construction technology aspects. Rather you should focus on the innovative technologies to be employed and on your strategy to deliver the project on time, on budget and to the required quality. This will require some additional research on site strategy, means and methods.

Summary details of the project are available on LEARN – you will have to make assumptions regarding certain aspects of the project, buildings and surrounding area.

There will be various bookable coursework tutorials through the semester.

Do not contact anyone connected with the development of the project. This is important for us to retain our credibility within the industry.

Report requirements and assessment criteria: Report 1 – Construction strategy (50% of coursework weight, max 2500 words)

…including rationale for what was considered and chosen, including but not limited to:

a. Main materials, methods & techniques b. Site layout c. Major plant and equipment, including a detailed lift plan for one important mobile crane d. Summary programme of main activities

Assessment based on:

• Explanation of technical aspects and practicality of construction strategy • Detailed lift plan (including a discussion) for one important mobile crane • Response to site constraints • Response to client’s needs • Annotated construction site layout plan and schedule • Presentation and clarity in communication

Report 2 – Innovation & risk management (50% of coursework weight, max 2500 words)

… focussing on three main innovations.

Assessment based on:

• Clarity in the description of innovation and the related dimension • Identification of risks associated with innovative technologies used along with the timeframe

for each risk • Identification of risk owners and reporting mitigation plans • Report specifically written for the client and sensitive to clients’ requirements for RM plan • Presentation and clarity in communication

Extra marks for the two reports will be given for evidence of additional research work, however, do not include large amounts of unnecessary literature.

Specific requirements and submission details: 1. This coursework must be done in groups of four (with the same group for both Reports 1 & 2).

You have a freedom to select and form a group with your colleagues. However, there must be at least 2 different nationalities in a group. This should provide an effective cross-cultural learning opportunity.

2. Precise format of the report is up to you, but make sure you pay sufficient attention to readership, and produce a ‘professional’ report.

3. Please submit Reports1 & 2 separately via the portal on the module LEARN. 4. Please state the word count on the cover. The length of discussion should be no more 2500

words for each report. Additionally, you may include other information as appendices. The reference list and appendices are not part of the word count. Please note that the appendices should: (i) include only necessary information, (ii) be kept to a minimum, and (iii) be referred to, in the main report. These appendices will not be marked, but they are only included to provide support to your discussion in the main report. Thus, the report should be focussed, succinct, and contain no unnecessary detail.

5. Each report and its appendices should be submitted via LEARN in one PDF file. Name the file with: “Group [number]_Report 1” and “Group [number]_Report 2”.

Peer assessment Peer assessment is an essential requirement for each submission. You will need to agree with your group, a percentage of group mark which each individual member should be awarded. This percentage will be used as a multiplication factor to produce mark for individual member. For example, if a group report is awarded 68%, and a percentage awarded to a member is agreed to be 95%, then the individual mark for this member is 65%. If the group agrees to award each member 100% of group mark, then all members will be awarded 68%. The proforma for the peer assessment is provided below. For each report, completed and signed proforma must be included in a page after the cover page. Should there be anomaly in the percentages, the module leader reserves the right to adjust the individual marks, as he deems appropriate and reflecting the quality of the submitted reports. As it is an essential requirement, a submitted report without signed proforma will not be marked, and no mark will be awarded to each group member.

Our group has agreed the following percentage of group mark should be awarded to our group member.
