INTRODUCTION3.1This career episode deals with the project entitled “EPC Works for Non Process Buildings &Revamping of Existing Plant Buildings” which I did while working in AMANA Contracting & Steel BuildingL.L.C. I was engaged in the project from July 2012 to December 2013 as SeniorPlanning Engineer.
The project activities were performed for Ruwais FertilizerIndustries (FERTIL) located atRuwais Industrial Complex, approximately 250 km west of the city of AbuDhabi, United Arab Emirates. The new plant was similar to existing Ammonia-UreaPlant which was operated by FERTIL. BACKGROUND3.
2The AMANAContracting & Steel Building L.L.C. is leading contractor of the region andhas added number of industrial and commercial facilities to constructedbuildings. The company is popular by its works on providing design-buildsolutions for fast-track projects.
However, FERTIL is fertilizer manufacturer of Abu Dhabi, whichutilises gas supplied from seaward fields. This company supplies fertilizers inboth national and international market. Thus, this projectwork was performed so as to add several Non-Process Buildings to the existing Ammonia-Urea Plant of FERTIL.Furthermore, I worked on reconditioning existing buildings and several othercivil works related to features of existing plant (FERTIL-1). OBJECTIVES3.3The prime objective of this project work was to procure,construct and commission works related to Non-Process Buildings and reconditioningexisting buildings.
Besides this, I set some other objectives for the projectapplicability. Some of them, can be pointed out as:· To attain least pearl building rating for designand construction of non-processing buildings· 3.4In this project work, i performed entire project activitiesunder project manager. Thus, I reported project progress to the manager indaily, weekly and monthly basis.
The organizational chart below represents myposition on this project: Figure:Organizational Chart representing my position during projectMy roles and responsibilities3.5Since, I was involved in the projectas senior planning engineer, I was mainly responsible for providing work scheduleand resource requirements so as to achieve all the project goals withinspecified time frame. Besides these, I performed some more activities for theproject and I was fully responsible for their success. Some of them are shownbelow:· Personal Engineering Activities3.6In this project work, I monitoredall the phases of project life cycle. In that regard, I prepared number ofbaseline schedulesAt the beginning of the project, Ithoroughly investigated several contract documents like drawings, bill of quantities,condition of works, etc.
After that, on the basis of investigation, I setrequirements and deliverables of the project. Furthermore, I worked onpreparation of milestone schedule for works so as to clarify projectdeliverables and their respective timelines to the project team and projectmanager. At the same time, I developed organization chart in collaboration withproject manager. After that, I worked ondeveloping work schedule for the project. For that, I made breakdown structureof work firstly.
And then, I prepared baseline structure including varioussectors such as design, procurement, construction, etc. with the help ofprimavera software. Following that, I added requirements and allocation ofresources, labours, machinery and materials to the schedule. At the same time, Iaddressed planned date for each design deliverable to the design team. Similarly,I worked on drawings submittal plan of shop drawings for approval from client. Likewise,I directed my work on independent time frame allocation of constructionactivities. Finally, I worked on testing,commissioning, demobilization so as to obtain final connection and NOCfrom concerned authorities. On the other hand, I assured appropriatecollection of required resources on due time.
Moreover, I timely advised projectmanager about requirements of manpower and equipment for attainment of projectgoals in specified time interval. Along with that, I issued constructiondrawings following the approval of design from employer and concernedauthorities. Thereafter, I Throughout the project period, I preparedprogress report and time sheet in daily basis in order to update projectprogress at site along with deployed quantity and man-hours. These reports assisted me in increasingefficiency and productivity of manpower at site. At the same time, I madereport about wasted materials so as to help project manager in maintaining theefficiency of project progress. Additionally, I was moreconcerned about health, safety and environment in entire project period. Therefore,I managed to follow all the rules of NoTolerance on safety policy. Moreover, I arranged Tool Box talk with teammembers at site on daily basis for the purpose of ensuring safe workingenvironment for each of them.
I personally reviewed all thedrawings prepared by design department and suggested them several solutions neededto solve conflicts at site. Moreover, I observed clash between existingutilities and proposed design in design rev 00. Thereafter, I discussed withthe project manager about found clashes and upon his request, I worked asdesign coordinator and gave necessary concept to design team about ways totackle observed problems.
