Executive summary

A Hospital is required in the Valuka Town which has a population of 100,000 people.
We have won the contract for delivering the building to be used as a Hospital. The
Construction of this building will add to our portfolio, of constructing residential homes.
Due to constraint on time, concurrent engineering has been used on activities (other than
the floors construction) which otherwise would have been planned in water fall method .

There was a long felt need for a hospital in the Valuka Town, which is home to around 100,000
inhabitants. Earlier Patients had to travel to the nearest City which is 50 km. It usually took 2hrs
to for a patient to reach the hospital at the earliest. The town inhabitants usually resisted going to
the hospital in causes of minor diseases owing to the traveling time. So it was decided to
construct a local hospital. The Approval of this hospital is well received among the residents and
doctors as well. This will improve health of inhabitants, increase life expectancy, reduce
traveling time and cost. Our Company has won the bid for delivering the Building for this
project. The project is secure enough and there are extremely less chances of any roll back. This
is the first time our company will deliver a building to be used as a Hospital, which will add to
our existing portfolio, which included construction of residential apartments. Additional
challenge in this project will be meeting requirement specifications different than in earlier
projects we have done.

This is a Z category project as government cannot earn revenue or not helping others in earning
revenue and this is a service rendering project. This project is a very good opportunity to increase
the public repute at no cost overhead. Our past experience of constructing the buildings on
resident houses and Hotel indicates that construction of a Building for Hospital will enhance our
portfolio. But we have to be extra careful for this first time. Time is very much limited which
will be overcome by doing more activities in parallel. This might cost extra budget which will be
utilized overtime and/or allocating more resource, plus bonuses on extra ordinary performances.
Project is highly secure and no chance of rolling back as government is showing keep interest
and public is highly anticipating the completion of this project. Extensive soil testing should be
done under supervision of internal professionals.
