LOOKING FOR A CONSULTING ENGINEER, CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGER, OR BOTH?
Our key focus will be in the total service delivery for Governmental Departments, Municipalities and private development companies that require the services of professionals in the Civil Engineering industry for the full project life cycle implementation of projects. We want to focus on SMME small contractor development and job creation through the Ubuntu philosophy “I am because we are,” or “humanity towards others,” in the philosophical sense “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity. It is engineering practice to apply similar approach and methodology to all the projects you undertake. For an assignment relating to the scope of work of Clients not all the steps may be relevant or necessary. Our methodology or work plan may be summarised as follows.
Project Inception – Both our Project Director and Project/Design Engineer would meet with the relevant Municipal officials to confirm the scope of the work. At this stage we would request and collect copies of any relevant records which might form the basis of our assignment. We would familiarise ourselves with the overall water reticulation network of Clients to ensure proper integration of our assignment. We would inspect the site. We would agree on specific design requirements or report/analysis outcomes required of the assignment and establish time constraints.
Report Stage / Feasibility Study – Consider alternative design options and prepare a preliminary design proposal for consideration and approval of the Employer. Set out the technical aspects as well as the proposed programme and estimated cost. Workshop the proposal with the Employer and affected parties.
Design Development / Preliminary Design Phase – If necessary, arrange for a detailed site survey and geotechnical investigation to be undertaken. Prepare a preliminary design proposal for presentation and discussion with the Employer, unless the information provided during the report stage is enough.
Discuss aspects of the design with the municipal officials such as pipe material and Class, preferred valves, hydrants and fittings, valve box types and covers, water connection details, position of pipes in the road reserve, depth of pipes. Ascertain the tender documentation requirements.
Design Phase and Procurement – Complete the detailed design and prepare an updated cost estimate. Compile bid documents, specifications and drawings and liaise with the Employer for tender advertising and Procurement. Evaluate the bids or tenders received, compare with the estimate and make a recommendation to the Employer. Establish and agree any requirements for construction supervision. Appoint Health and Safety Consultants as may be necessary.
Construction Phase – Administer the Contract and monitor construction to ensure proper quality control. Hold regular fortnightly site meetings for site management. Maintain a proper paper trail to meet the ISO 9001 Quality Control system in place. Manage and finalise financial matters, prepare Record Drawings and Close-out or Completion report.
