request from clients to give an update of how

much is needed to complete their projects.

Commercial Management of Construction Level 2

As a cost manager, I have developed cost plans at the design stage which are at times above the clients budget; in such scenarios, I have always given value engineering advice to the design team ranging from design review, reduction in the floor areas, change of material finishes in order to reconcile the design and the clients budget and ensure good value for money.

Commercial Management of Construction Level 3

On one particular residential project, the structural engineer made a design review which affected the concrete grades hence posing a cost overrun in the RC Frame; as a cost manager, I challenged the structural engineer to do value engineering in his review and have sections with different grades in the slab in order to reduce the cost implication of the design change.

 

On other projects I have been involved in evaluating and advising on the financial implication of the design changes and appropriate management actions along the progress of the construction project.

OR Design Economics and Cost Planning:

 

Covers the impact of design and other factors on cost throughout the life of the building and the control of cost during the pre-contract stage. Candidates should have an awareness of how design decisions and construction processes impact on construction and operational costs.

retention, bonds, liquidated and ascertained damages and practical completion procedures.

 

Being involved in the renovation and alteration of Hala Plaza where the client went in a contract with a 3 rd party for the installation of a specialist roof system, I made a review of the contract terms submitted by the subcontractor by adding a retention clause where 10% of the value of works is held until the end of the defects liability period.

 

Contract Practice Level 3

On the same project, after choosing the East African schedule of building contracts as the appropriate form of contract under an admeasurement contract, the client had other requirements to add to the contract and I was tasked to formulate an addendum to the main contract.

Construction Technology and Environmental Services:

 

Covers the design and construction of buildings and other structures. Candidates should have a clear understanding of the design and construction process commonly used in the industry. They should have detailed knowledge of construction solutions relevant to their projects.

Construction Technology and Environmental Services Level 2

  • I have also learnt the different alternative

construction details in relation to functional elements of design such as comparison between steel and concrete frame construction, the different ventilation types; natural vs mechanical or the combination of both.

 

On one residential project, the architect had specified decra roofing tiles; at the time of execution of the works, no appropriate material

 

supply was found on the local market and it necessitated importing the decra tiles which became costly when compared to the rate the contractor had submitted at tender.

Construction Technology and Environmental Services Level 3

  • I therefore advised the project team and client to use locally available Kajjansi roofing tiles as an appropriate option that would not pose any financial implication on the overall cost of the project.

On another project, I advised the structural engineer to review his design and change from solid slabs to hollow slabs as this would reduce the loading of the building and also reduce the reinforcement to be used as well as the concrete in the slab; this helped to achieve good value for money

Procurement and Tendering:

Covers how a project is structured and delivered in terms of risk allocation and contractual relationships and how tendering processes are used to establish a contract price. Candidates should have a clear understanding of the different types of procurement and tendering commonly used and the advantages of each to the parties involved.

preliminary and detailed evaluation and recommendations for the best evaluated tenders and recommendations for tender negotiation. I have also chaired and attended bid opening meetings.

Procurement and Tendering Level 3

During my involvement in the refurbishment of Dream Africa Schools as their main consultant, I was involved in the entire procurement of bidders using the traditional method and then selective bidding. After receiving bids from different contractors, I was tasked with the evaluation process and making recommendations of the best bidder; where as some bidders had very competitive rate, their experience record was insufficient to guarantee their quality and expertise to do the job and so I advised my client to eliminate such contractors whose experience was insufficient; this helped us to remain with a few contractors who later were awarded contracts and the quality of works has been outstanding and at the best value for money.

 

Project Financial Control and Reporting:

 

Covers the effective cost control of construction projects during the construction phase. Candidates should be aware of the principles of controlling and reporting costs on any construction project. They should have a detailed understanding of the control and reporting processes used on their project.
