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.

Hi Raheel

Primavera is noit the best software for linear projects - you should be considering Tilos or Vicos.

Best regards

Dear Rahel,

The major activities in most projects are

Shop Drawings and Approval

Material Submittals and Approval



Testing and Commissioning and Handing Over.

You can get the first three sections and the last section from the BOQs and the Issued for Construction Drawings. On the other hand, the Construction depends on the construction team.

For a Road Construction project, I assume that you need to site with your construction team and divide the project into zones and work on them according to priority. Once you have done that the activities generally are:

1. Site Survey.

2. Cut and fill

3. Civil Works according to the cross section of the road that you have; layer 1, 2, 3, etc. You will need to notive the MEP work included inside the civil works and sequence it accordingly.

4. Isolate the concrete structures (box culverts, bridges, etc) and have them in a separte category.

5. You might have side walks, paint, signals, etc after the end of construction. You will have to reveiw the BOQ and Plan them accordingly.

I hope that the information helps a little. If you be more specific and describe the project more, we can assist more.

With kind regards,
