Your company has been awarded a contract of developing and constructing a new International Airport 30 km away from a city. You have been appointed as Planning Engineer (Materials and Equipment). Project is to be implemented in phases. In Phase I, one strip of landing of 100 m. width is to be constructed in 100 days. The scope of work for this assignment is only as follows:a) Cutting and Dozing of 100,000 cu.m. of earth. Average height 0.75 m. b) Transportation of 20,000 cu.m. of surplus earth from site to dumping place 3 k.m. away from site (including spreading). Filling of 80,000 cu.m. in landing strip. c) Bringing in 3000 cu.m. of Sand from 20 k.m. (including spreading and leveling at site).
d) Procurement of 1,50,000 litres of Bitumen. Duration of work 30 days
