Introduction Located North Ireland, the town of Mostly has been blessed with many natural creation and landscape as snowy mountain whole year long and beautiful mountain view. However. The area Is not well populated and most of the place Is Inhabited. Therefore, the local authority starts a new campaign to redevelop the town and facilities there. As the newly appointed manager of the project, a project plan is required with sufficient information and proposal from the investigation stage of the area to the completion of the new town.
The plan is to redevelop the town without stubbing the natural cycle and minimize the pollution and waste from the town. The plan also focuses on long term development as constant construction will heavily damage the nature. II. Project Scope Statement 2. 1 Project objectives The project emphasizes on 2 objectives: To renovate the town into a high class resort with terrain park at cost not exceed $1,478,000 To maintain the ecosystem in the area after humans interfere and avoid natural disaster 2. Deliverables To develop the endorsed resort and park occupying the site of 115. 00 hectares To establish the additional raise of capacity for 8000 to 10000 visitors To develop new sort along the mountain and terrain park near the mountain side To develop a trail system, lift system, weather forecast system and snow density control system. 2. 3 Milestones 1. Permits approved- 14th June, 2015 2. Inspections and plan finalization-7th July, 2015 3. Construction and Final Inspection ; 7th May 2016 4.
Opening ceremony- 21st July 2016 2. 4 Technical requirements Terminal speed: The maximum speed for a fixed geometry and nominal parameters as the following formula: With slope angle, , mass of rider, m, a drag coefficient of , frontal area, A, density of IR, , and kinetic friction coefficient, , the terminal speed is . Equivalent fall height (FEE): The vertical height of fall that results in a speed at Impact on a horizontal surface equal to height of landing velocity In the landing surface.
For a rider landing at height equivalent is Trail system specification Lift system specification Ecosystem development 2. 5 limits and exclusions All buildings and facilities are built to the specification and design of the original blueprints provided by the developers Local residents will be temporary replaced to another area until the construction is finished Contractor reserves the rights to contract out services Contractor is responsible for sub-contractor works Site work is limited from Monday to Friday, 8:AAA.

Project priorities As the manager of the project, one of the primary Job is to manage the trade-off among Time, Cost, and Performance. One of the common technique is to complete the Project Priority Matrix to identify which should be constrained, the original parameter, which should be enhanced, the optimist of the scope, and which is accepted, the tolerate not to meet the parameter Time Performance Cost Constrain Enhance Accept Figure 3. 1 Project Priority Matrix Time is crucial to the business because the local residents accept to move under a certain time.
So any delay caused will result to compensation or suspension of the project. Besides, the longer the project takes, the longer the turnover time is. So the investor will not be patient to wait for their money to grow. The original performance specifications from the design cannot be compromised, especially the safety limit. The cost of the project is flexible as, more preferably; the actual cost is under the estimated overall cost. Any extra cost or indemnification is not advisable but can be arranged. Figure 4. Display the project structure which consists of 3 levels. Level 1 is the project end item, Nostalgia Terrain Park. Level 2 which are composed by 5 subdivides of level 1 explain that the project is divided into 5 stages. And level 3 is the details of each stage of level 2. At the start of the project, a team will approach local authority to seek the business approval and construction approval. The project manager will browse the area to survey, investigate, and collect data about Nostalgia own about the slope of the mountain, snow thickness, and weather.
Based on the data collected, a calculation and analysis of the area is formulated and the design of jib features is identical to the calculation. The time of 5 weeks is allowed for this stage. As the overall design is finalized, the infrastructure inside the park is discussed. The park includes Trail system to allow general transportation, Lift system for customer transportation, Maintenance or ecosystem design for weather forecasting, area examination. Besides, the resort will be designed next to the park to low customers to stay for long vacation.
Everything has to be ready in the next 9 weeks. Once all the design is completed and the infrastructure model is selected, construction and technician contractor will be contacted to meeting and conclude the contracts. The contract shall not exceed the project budget of $1,478,000 and the project cannot take more than 6 months to complete. Terms and conditions are stated clearly in the contracts. Consultants are contacted too to develop Weather and Geometric forecast system in order to avoid natural disasters. This can take another 2 seeks to complete.
The big day when the project has come to reality is fixed on June 2015. This is a suitable season when the snow fall less and the weather is warmest in the year. To reduce the project finishing time, both construction of the resort and the park will be initiated together as the areas under construction of the park and result are separated and convenient for all contractors to operate. Staff recruitment starts as well with basic trainings provided by the contractors and technician. The entire stage can take 32 weeks to test and complete.
Some of the common risk that will appear soon enough is like: High rate of natural disaster High cost of maintenance due to cold weather Bad weather will delay the construction process Slow turn-over rate discourage investors Far distant place and poor transportation will attract fewer visitors 8. 2 Risk The second step of risk management is to sift the list of risks generated in step 1, eliminate redundant or inconsequential risks and focus on worthy one. The 2 main areas that are highlighted are the Probability of the event and the impact of the event.
Among the list of risks that is proposed in step 1, bad weather and high cost of maintenance is the 2 most feasible risks that will occur during and after the construction of the park. According to the data collected about the weather of Nostalgia, the area sometimes experience prolonged snow storm or avalanche. However, the impact of a disaster can be dramatic and the construction will be shut down during the event to minimize casualty. Besides, the maintenance cost is high because in the cold weather, the machine and engine will be frosted and take longer time to warm up. Likelihood 5
High Maintain-once Cost Bad Weather Impact Figure 8. 2 Risk Severity Matrix 8. 3 Risk Response Development In order to improve the problem, there are several ways to response to the risks. Mitigating Risk The method focuses on reducing the likelihood or impact of the event. Bad weather cannot be stopped completely but can be forecasted and programmed. Once the upcoming storm is confirmed, the construction site can be early-informed to take cover or counter-measure so the impact or damage is minimized. Retaining Risk The measure is to make a conscious decision to accept the risk.
Maintenance cost is art of the business and both Likelihood and Impact can only temporally be condensed. By accepting the fact of high cost, the company will concentrate on distributing personnel to check the equipment, constant and consistent update the conditions of the machine, or create shelter or guard house to stand by for the emergency plan. ‘X. Project Performance Measure and Evaluation In order to analyses the project performance, a commonly practiced tool to display the business process and compare actual and planned schedule and cost is the Cost / Schedule graph or Earned Value Project Management (EVEN).
