RECOMMENDATION

THE CASE STUDY ABOUT THE CONSTRUCTION OF A 5 UNIT TWO-STOREY ROW HOUSE IN MANAOAG,
PANGASINAN FOUND OUT MANY PROBLEMS DURING CONSTRUCTION AND EXAMPLES ARE: POOR CONSTRUCTION
METHOD, LACK OF SUPERVISION OF WORKS, AND SAFETY PROGRAMS FOR WORKERS. IN CONSTRUCTION, IT IS
IMPORTANT TO SECURE FIRST THE SAFETY OF WORKERS BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONE THAT MAKES THE PLAN TO
BE POSSIBLE. PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE PROVIDED FOR EACH WORKER TO MINIMIZE
ACCIDENTS IN JOB SITE.
QUALITY OF WORK MUST BE THE AIM OF THE CONTRACTOR, INVESTING FOR DURABLE AND EFFECTIVE
MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT FOR CONSTRUCTION IS NOT A WASTE OF MONEY. GOOD QUALITY MATERIALS AND
EQUIPMENT FOR CONSTRUCTION WILL LEAD ALSO TO GOOD QUALITY OF WORK AND TIMELY WORK
ACCOMLPISHMENT.
LACK OF SUPERVISION IS ONE OF THE MAJOR PROBLEMS DURING CONSTRUCTION. SOME DETAILS IN THE
PLAN WERE NOT FOLLOWED BY THE WORKERS BECAUSE THE ENGINEER CANNOT SUPERVISE THEM REGULARLY.
THIS PROBLEM MUST BE SOLVED IMMEDIATELY IN ORDER TO AVOID WASTING OF MONEY AND DELAYING THE
ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE PROJECT. THE ENGINEER MUST HIRE A GOOD FOREMAN THAT HE CAN INFORM ABOUT
THE PROPER EXECUTION OF WORK IN THE JOB SITE AND WILL SUPERVISE THE WORKERS.
THIS CASE STUDY CONDUCTED RECOMMENDS THAT IN ORDER TO HAVE A GOOD MANAGEMENT OF A
CONSTRUCTION PROJECT, THERE MUST BE A PROPER APPLICATION OF CONSTRUCTION METHODS SUCH AS
SCHEDULING OF WORKS AND NETWORKING OF EVERY ACTIVITY. IN THIS CASE, THERE IS A SMOOTH FLOW OF
WORKS ON THE CONSTRUCTION SITE THAT MAKES THE PROJECT FINISH ON OR BEFORE THE SCHDULED DATE.
SOME PROBLEMS IN THE SITE CAN NOT BE AVOIDED; HENCE, PROJECT ENGINEERS OR FOREMEN MUST BE
FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO HANDLE SUCH PROBLEMS. REGULAR SUPERVISION OF THE PROJECT ENGINEER MUST ALSO
BE NEEDED ON SITE TO MONITOR THE WORKING CONDITIONS.

BECAUSE OF THESE OBSERVATIONS WE HAD, AS A CIVIL ENGINEERING STUDENT, WE RECOMMEND THAT


THE CONTRACTOR MUST HAVE INTERVENTION IN DIFFERENT PROBLEMS THAT THE PROJECT IS FACING, MOSTLY
IN ITS TECHNICAL ASPECT AND MAINLY IN DEPLOYING NEEDED MANPOWER, EQUIPMENTAND MATERIALS. THEN
ORGANIZING THEM ACCORDING TO THE PLAN MADE, HIRING PROJECT ENGINEER WHO WILL TAKE IN CHARGE THE
OPERATION OF THE PROJECT. IT IS A MUST TO FOLLOW THE REQUIREDSPECIFICATON IN DIFFERENT WORKDS AND
AVOID COMPROMISING THE QUALITY OF THE PROJECT. OVER ALL, WE MUST CONSIDER NOT ONLY THE PROFIT
THAT WE WILL GAIN BUT THE QUALITY OF SERVICE WE CN PROVIDE. AS THE QUOTATION SAYS, THE QUALITY
REVEALS THE TRUE PRICE.

PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED
PROJECT MANAGEMENT PROBLEM
1. LACK OF MANPOWER
SLOW FLOW OF WORK DUE TO SMALL NUMBER OF WORKMEN. LACK OF
MANPOWER RESULTED TO SMALL PERCENTAGE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT.
2. INSUFFICIENT EQUIPMENT
DUE TO THE FACT OF HAVING LACK OF MANPOWER, THIS PROBLEM ALSO ADDS
BURDEN IN THE PROCESS OF CONSTRUCTION.
3. CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS WERE NOT PROPERLY STORED
UNORGANIZED CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS CAN LEAD TO ACCIDENTS, A
WAREHOUSE SHOULD BE PROVIDED
4. SECURING OF PERMIT
IT IS A MUST TO SECURE OR TO HAVE BUILDING PERMIT BEFORE THE
CONSTRUCTION OF A CERTAIN BUILDING/PROJECT.

TECHNICAL MANAGEMENT PROBLEM


1. LACK OF SAFETY EQUIPMENT AND SIGNAGES
THE RISKS ON THE JOB SITE ARE BEING NEGLECTED. THE SAFETY OF THE
WORKING GROUP IS NOT TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION.
2. SPECIFICATIONS NOT FOLLOWED
SINCE THE PROJECT ENGINEER IS NOT PRESENT, THE SPECIFICATIONS STATED
IN THE PLAN IS NOT BEING FOLLOWED.

AS WE GO THROUGH THIS STUDY, WE OBTAIN:


WE ARE ABLE TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ACTUAL CONSTRUCTION AND THEORETICAL
CONDITION.
IN THE FIELD OF ENGINEERING, TO SHOW GOOD JUDGEMENT, WE OR THE CONTRACTOR MUST
FOLLOW THE SPECIFICATIONS ACCORDING TO LATEST NSCP AND NATIONAL BUILDING CODE.
DURING THIS STUDY, WE ALSO LEARNED HOW TO MAKE A WORK NETWORK AND TO MANAGE
CONSTRUCTION IN A SIMPLIER WAY YET ATTAINABLE.
CONSTRUCTION ISNT EASY, IT IS INDEED DIFFICULT. SEEING THIS WE ARE MOTIVATED TO DO OUR
BEST NOT ONLY IN OUR STUDY BUT ALSO FOR BETTERMENT OF OURSELVES.
YOU MUST DO THE WORK ACCORDING TO WHAT IS RIGHT AND NOT FOR YOUR DESIRE FOR MONEY.
WE GAINED MORE COMPREHENSIVE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE FIELD OF ENGINEERING FROM WHAT
WAS LEARNED IN SCHOOL.
