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.

Seeking advise - Should I focus on learning about services distribution?

I am fairly new to planning, and our site has just got a site manager to look after the ground floor services distribution on a large residential project (900 flats). With my limited time, I am wondering if this is what I should be focusing on learning, and how this work impacts programme and the rest of the work in the project.

Appreciate any advise.

It depends on what do you want to attain or where do you want to start with your career. Regarding planning, the process will be the same. Developing of WBS, task, code, logic, resourcing will be the same. The scope might be different but it’s a good start. You will also have different discipline such as Civil, Structural, Piping, Mechanical, Sanitary, Electrical, Communication etc…
