Working as civil engineer for your company, you have been tasked with producing a site planning solution for a project that the company is trying to win in a competitive tender.

The purpose of this assessment is to enable the students to individually demonstrate what they have learned about construction technology by using logical thought processes to plan the production of a built asset (further project information will be issued under separate cover).

The presentation of the plan is to be a portfolio of documents prepared using industry standard software.

The portfolio will include documents detailing the site layout strategy including (but not limited  to),  proposals  for  security,  accommodation,  site  logistics,  pedestrian,  traffic


management and material storage as well as materials to optimise the collaboration between different subcontractors.

These materials will not need to be exhaustive (i.e. cover all aspects of the build), as the focus should be instead on the quality of the communication and information provided on as small set of representative documents.



Additional instructions to students:

This individual submission can make use of any work performed in your group; however, you have the freedom to alter the work carried out there to any extent of your choice.
