Civil construction is a process in which human beings build, construct, improve and maintain the physical infrastructure of a place. Civil construction is a term used to describe the planning, design, and construction of buildings, bridges, roads, railroads, airports, tunnels, dams, etc. Civil engineering is the oldest of the engineering disciplines, with construction dating back about 4,000 years.
Stages involved in civil construction
Civil construction is the construction of roads, buildings, bridges, railways, water supply, sanitation systems, sewage systems, power stations, etc. The Civil engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of these projects. There are several different stages of civil construction in a project. There are total of seven stages in civil construction. These six phases outlined above provide a logical overview of a building project from start to conclusion. A building project is a short-term activity that involves the combining of various resources. Almost every construction project is unique, yet they always follow the same cycle from beginning to end.
The conception of the construction project
The first concepts for a project are considered during project conception before the actual design begins. Before this, the project’s location and the specification of the relevant building codes are collected. It is vital to contact an architect at this point to confirm that everything is viable.
After the conception phase is completed, the design phase begins. The design takes place before the purchase of products and services and before the start of the project. The architect team converts the client’s visions into reality.
Planning about construction
After the design is completed, the project planner then sets the project into action by creating a strategic plan. This is where the project is broken down into smaller, more manageable chunks, making it easier to set completion dates.
Obtaining permits for construction
All of the appropriate building permits must be obtained before the project can begin. As different subjects have separate licenses, this procedure continues throughout the project. Hurdles in obtaining permits can cause significant delays in a project. Some tasks are simple, while others take months or years to complete. Working with an experienced project manager makes the task go smoothly and reduces the risks.
The procurement stage
The procurement stage is where the project team acquires the necessary equipment, workers, and materials. The difficulty of this stage is determined by the scale of the project, the projected start date, and the access to resources. At this point, the general contractor allocates the contracts to subcontractors.
Final construction stage
The project may now begin to construct following the pre-construction meeting. During this stage, the principal contractor retains the overall management of the project. He oversees resources, monitors papers, and communicates project progress. The design team is in charge of quality control to ensure that the project adheres to the authorized plans. The design team also reviews the Substitution requests, modification orders, and submissions.
Post construction stage
This stage is very important after construction completion. Although the physical construction is finished, the project has not yet been handed over to the owner. If we don’t inspect at this stage, many issues can arise for the owner. The project manager and engineer then walk across the site, listing any work that still needs to be done. The projector manager collaborates with the contractor to correct the inaccuracies.
