1.0 Project Brief KMCF are the Tendering Team working for a Small Civil Engineering contracting organisation. Tendering Manager has requested to prepare a submission for senior management documenting that the company approach to selecting a tender design for use in a design and build works proposal which is Upgrade Works of Keadue Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) and project team is to develop a generic tender selection system which is applicable to all future work for Keadue development. In addition, the company are also requested to document how the KMCF Project Team could handle the proposal, in the tender format provided, and develop a schedule and cost performance system for use during the contract phase. The KMCF team shall prepare the requisite quality and management systems necessary to perform the following: Responsibility Assignment Matrix A feasibility assessment system on two design options for the planned development of the existing WWTP. The system is used as the basis for the development of a generic system. A construction and works schedule tailored to the development requirements of the chosen WWTP tender. The project team shall host all information on a WordPress intranet for ease of access by both middle and senior management. Video presentations shall be prepared for the project. Tender Documentation should consider the following: FTS4 Tender and Schedule Scope of the Works Schedule of Prices Contract Drawings

2.0 Background to Site Keadue, Co. Roscommon has been chosen as the trial site for the incorporation of this tendering and performance monitoring system. The site is located close to Ballyfarnon 6 miles North of Boyle. It is on the location of the existing treatment works for the village. The effluent flows by gravity through the existing works. The current treatment system existed on site is Traditional type system which can serve approximately 300 PE and it consists of the following elements: 1 no. Split flow chamber and screens 1 no. Imhoff tank 1 no. Rotary Filter 1 no. Humus Tank 3 no. Sludge drying beds 1 no. Outlet inspection chamber 1 no. Reed bed

Lough Meelagh will be the location where the final effluent will be discharged, which is in close proximity to the proposed site. The site is located off R284 from where the works are easily accessible. It is proposed to incorporate a treatment plant into the existing works and to utilise as much of the existing works if possible. The age of plant is almost 25 years old and upgrade works are necessary to meet the current and future demand as well as to improve the quality of effluents produced. According to (Roscommon County Council, 2008-2014), it is estimated about 5% and 45% of high population growth in rural development increases over 6 years.

2.1 Environmental constraints in Keadue


A full Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and quite possibly Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) would normally be conducted as discussed in this section. 2

2.1.1 Subsoil Database Based on research conducted by National Soils Database which can be accessed in EPA website, samples are taken approximately 0.48 km distance away from Keadue as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1: County and Province Map which the red mark is where the location of sample is taken. Sandstone is the type of rock present in the samples having acidic pH 5.4. Table 1 below is the geo chemical result produced by the collected samples which possibly would drive the elements to the WWTP in Keadue.

2.1.2 Natural Heritage Area Kilronan Mountain Bog (NHA) is the conservation area for upland blanket bog habitat including Purple Moor-grass (Molinia caerulea), Hares-tail Cottongrass (Eriophorum vaginatum) and Ling Heather (Calluna vulgaris). This mountain is a protected area near to Keadue WWTP as shown in Figure 2.

Location of Site

There are two others proposed Natural Heritage Area including Lough Allen and Corrigeenroe Marsh that exists further away from Keadue WWTP as shown in Figure 3.

Location of Site

Figure 3: Corrigeenroe Marsh conservation area in yellow colour.

According to (Natural Heritage Area, 2005), any works will be constructed within this area and the surrounding, must be specified for the purposes under section 19 (1) of the Act.

2.1.3 Other Relevant Maps The following are relevant maps that also being considered in conjunction to the location of the Keadue WWTP: Aquifer Data (refer Appendix A) Bedrock - Structural Linework & Solid Geology (refer Appendix B) Bedrock - Generalised Map (refer Appendix C) Groundwater Well Data (refer Appendix D) Karst Features (refer Appendix E) Recharge Data (refer Appendix F) River Basin District Boundaries & Groundwater Bodies (refer Appendix G) Source Protection Area Data (refer Appendix H) Teagasc Subsoil Data (refer Appendix I) Vulnerability Data (refer Appendix J)

This project is purely a desktop study and therefore those components cannot be completed. In addition, due to Environmental constraints and insufficient of information, the BMS package with 20/30 quality effluent was chosen. The proposed system on site will be discussed under the feasibility study section.

3.0 Feasibility Study IT package was developed to compare 10 various package systems and a conventional treatment system. Initial comparisons consideration: PE (current and future demand) Size of plant Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) SS (Suspended Solids) 6

Final comparisons consideration (Narrowed to the two best packages): Ease of construction Economical use of land Time for completion Ecological footprint

Furthermore, this section also included alterations to compare different type of systems. For instance larger systems could be compared for bigger sites.

4.0 Scheduling Developed in a generic fashion to allow for the schedule to be altered for different sites or the use of a conventional system.

4.1 Construction Schedule


Construction Scheduling is a process of breaking down a project into smaller activities and the durations of time each will take, then organizing them into an order of actions to be taken to finish the job. The contractor will have Start dates and finish dates for every task and main goal is to determine a total duration of the project.

4.2 Work Schedule


A schedule of works as used in the construction industry refers to a schedule that is a basic timeline of how the site should run. This should show the start and set up of the site to the completion and handover of the finished works, with all the various procedures and works shown on the task scheduler in between.

5.0 Monitoring System KMCF need to develop an automated system design for the upgrade works at Keadue Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The monitoring system for the upgrade works of Keadue WWTP will have the following components: 1. Earned Value Management 2. Function to allow for delays in Project 3. Automated report generator 7

5.1 Earned Value Management


Earned Value Management (EVM) helps project managers to measure project performance. It is a regular project management process used to find variances in projects based on the comparison of worked performed and work planned. EVM technique used to track the progress and status of the project and forecast the likely future performance of the project. EVM integrates the scope, schedule and cost of the project. EVM can be used to show past performance of the project, current performance of the project and also show the future performance of the project. Good planning coupled with effective use of the EVM technique will reduce a large amount of issues arising out of schedule and cost overruns. Once the contractor's EVM System is considered and implemented on a project, there are significant benefits to the contractors. Contractor benefits make it easier to meet project schedule, cost and technical objectives. The Contractors internal systems must be able to provide: Planned value Earned Value Actual cost of work performed Budget at completion Estimate at completion Cost variance Schedule variance Variance at completion

5.2 Function to allow for delay in project It should automatically update construction schedule costs and duration to allow for delay events. It documents cause of delay and updates all EVM information accordingly. It documents delay event into the Project status Report. 5.2.1 Programme Contingency/ Extension of Time The programme should all for Extension in the time required to complete an activity. In our programme it can be taken into account by, activating a Programme Contingency, if one

exists in accordance with Public Works Contractor for Civil Engineers Designed by Contractor or if none exists by entering the delay. 5.2.2 Adjustment to contract sum This is completed in accordance with Public Works Contractor for Civil Engineers Designed by Contractor which can be completed by, taking existing prices off original Bill of Quantities or altering existing prices in original Bill of Quantities or recalculating cost for the activity taking into account, labour, materials, plant and design.

5.3 Automated Report Generator


The automated report generator is capable of updating automatically as the project progress. As per the standard format of a Project Status Report, the document includes the following: Work planned for last month Work completed last week Work planned for next week Open issues Open risks Current status of milestones Key Performance Indicators

All of the above information will update automatically in real-time. This will allow for all delays and issues to documented easily and provide a clear picture of the projects progression and current status. This inclusion of this function with the monitoring system will allow the project manager in charge to regularly print of copies of this report as normal but will remove all effort required in this process, allowing him/her to focus on the task at hand. This document may also be presented to the client, either in person or via the online communication system our team have developed. This will provide the client with all the necessary information to gain an insight into their project progress.
