Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Can anyone tell me where I can find an example of a hotel construction schedule.

I will be building one in a few weeks for the first time and would like to get an idea of what a typical one is like.

My experience has mainly been with heavy civil, paper mill, some commercial remodel,new pre-engineered metal buildings, and some residential schedules.

Mainly I am looking for activities and logic info.

Any help will be appreciated!

Sir Muhammad,

I am requesting also a copy of activities for your hotel project. These activities I believe may be helpful for me as a building engineer. Although building projects may not be the same in all aspects, it would be a great guide sequencing tasks for a certain project.

My email ad is fer_eson@yahoo.com.ph

I will be posting any observation regarding sequencing upon browsing it.

Thanks and more power,

Fereson

Dear Owais & All,

Reference to your feedback; to all of those whom I have send PDF file of "Intercontinental Hotel Construction Schedule" I am sending another Hotel project build in P3 named as "Radisson Hotel Project".This one is small compared to previous one; as my job was to only to do construction planning of "REMAINING" finishing work.However it does include linked Civil Finishing,Electrical, Plumbing,HVAC,Fire Fighting,Furnishing, Equipment Installations and External Finishing activities of 13 storey high Hotel building.

Again I must say that dont model them; they are just small helping examples; I beleive you all will do much better.

Regards

Muhammad Waqas Zafar

Dear All,

I have emailed this to all of them who gave me their email adresses and will keep giving who ever ask’s for it.I request all of you to please do post your feedback that how much it was helpful?

One thing that I want to point out; as also indicated by some seniors below that you must prepare your own list of actvities as Specifications/B.O.Q/Area/Loctaion/Star/Chain of Hotel Project varies to great extent.

Lester,

Though samples from other sources would be helpful, Samer is right that you read in detail your BOQ and other contract documents to build up your schedule.

BOQ:
You can convert your BOQ items to activities (say 1 BOQ item converted into 3 activities), breaking down your budget into these activities. Some Clients requires a monthly printouts of program showing a column for BCWP/EVs as a supporting document to payment applications.

Plans:
For schedule logic/relationships. Mike’s post is very helpful, dont forget to add date for intoducing Wild Air which is needed for ID/finishing works)

Contract Agreement:
Major Milestones
NTP for Provisional Sums

Specifications:
Type of materials - has impact on your method of installations
List of General Requirements

Hope the above will help.

Regards,

Dear Friends,

You should be creating your list of activities as per the projects that you have. Each project is different. All the BOQs, Plans and Specifications should be read in detail in order to come out with the right Schedule.

Have a nice day.

Hi Lester

Adding a bit to Samers list there are a few key points in any building construction - hotels included:

Weathertight milestones > kicks off internal finishings
remember that if the upper floor footpint gets smaller as it goes up you cannot usually weather seal the lower floors until the scaffold is down to the level below.

Scaffold down > starts external works and drainage.

Finishings > best done top down so that your cleaning leaves behind a locked zone.

Lifts and corridors > decorating does not start until access traffic is cleared.

M&E systems > take these in sections:

1. Roof and/or baseemt plant - install when the zone is ready.
2. Risers between floors > ductwork > pipework > cable trays or busbars > IT containment > all start when the riser shafts are in place.
3. Horizontals in ceiling zones > start when you have a floor deck above and clear below.
4. Connections between horizontals and risers and across the planr zones.

Plant run up and test starts only when:

1. The incoming services are live.
2. The internal M&E fittings are at final stage ie grilles taps and lamps in place.

M&E test and commissioning is usually:

1. Zone test for each floor > linked to > project test and commisioning.
2. In most structures - and particularly hotels - the final test and commission is done when the whole building is cleaned and completed - 30 working days is a minimum period. Tjis is usually concurrent with operation manuals and staff training.

It is best to establish a finish start trade cascade for each level. This can then be copy / paste and linked from bottom up for structure and the top down for finishings.

Do not set up single bars for multi trades in multi locations ie "1st Fix M&E - all floors" and then use lead lag links to following trades.

The last time I did one of these last month it took 5 hours for a 25 storey block - but that was using PowerProject.

Best regards

Dear Lester,
It depends on the hotel that your building.
The main activities would be

1) Civil works: Excavation, foundations, SOG, floors and roof, insulation, backfilling, Swimming Pools and Jacuzzis, treatment plants

2) Electro Mechanical works: Depends on each area. Basement you will have the Boilers, Water tanks, laundry, mechanical rooms, and electrical rooms. Ground floor your will have the reception, restaurants, stores, ballrooms, and the floors you will have the rooms and the corridors. You will have at least 15-25 systems in this category depending on the complexity of your hotel.

3) Finishes works will be for each area in the hotel. But once you have the mock up room approved, the majority of your finishes will be completed.

4) Kitchens, Laundry, landscape works with plants and irrigation, movable furnishers, sign age, sanitary fixtures and toilet accessories, art work, access roads, dorms for our staff, etc

If you have specific questions, please let me know.

Good luck.
