Change Event Management

A construction project can be successfully managed by administering the change events in the right manner and efficiently, since the occurrence of changes shall be inevitable. Supervising the agenda to comprise changes is different from supervising advancement and revealing that advancement in a restructured schedule.

While an updated and restructured schedule mirrors advancement of the work in progress and the date of data modifies accordingly, a ‘reworked’ agenda includes amendments to potential baseline programme work activities or components. Such amendments could take in work activities transformed into more advanced tasks to more specifically illustrate the series of events. Such an alteration could be illustrated by splitting up the base work into a number of activities like footing location surveying, footing drilling, amassing strengthening steel cages, placing base anchor bolts, and transmitting footing concrete. An adjustment to a particular activity like this explains future work in further detail and is deemed as a schedule review.

With the construction onset, it becomes essential to re-order specific activities to more precisely replicate the construction of a project. It should be taken into consideration that doing this also calls for the re-sequencing and re-scheduling of the activities that were initially programmed to begin before and subsequent to the re-ordered activity.

Other planned activity changes may consist of adjusted intervals. Subsequent to the commencement of a project, it may be established that a specific activity that was planned to assume two weeks for completion ought to essentially take three. The agenda is required to be fine-tuned to take up the extra week period for not letting this change affect the final date of project completion. However, if no other timeline of activity could be constricted, the change should stay on and supplementary man-hours or manpower ought to be programmed to recompense.

Other alterations and modifications that take place during a construction project entail common and uncommon happenings. Common events of change take account of dissimilar conditions that transpire during a project that were unlikely, changes of design, owner-added orders of change or unfinished designs that have been completed since then. Uncommon change events consist of labor commotions, atypical weather, and/or remote events that cannot be controlled by either the contractor or the owner. The atypical weather stirs most frequently with the utmost effect on the agenda. Contractors comprise likely weather delays into their preliminary preparation, however strange weather, like hurricane, can impinge on the overall development of project.


Any amendments or usual revisions to the construction agenda must be published again, communicated and distributed to all the involved parties of the construction practice. It must be noted that the premeditated date of completion should not be influenced by a revised schedule publish. If the planned date of completion has been altered, the sequencing of project must be evaluated by the contractor and he must also establish the process of avoiding a dissimilar date of completion than formerly planned, except if the extension of schedule is approved of.
