1.1.0 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
construction industry has witnessed continued growth at a phenomenal rate
construction methods have witnessed changes with current trends tending towards
prefabrication and the authomation of all the processes involved in the
erection and installation of structure Kashish C. (2016). All these require
high management impact with the population explosion and continued demand for
new building of all kinds couple with the infrastructural facilities there is
the need for professional practitioners in the building industry to impart
knowledge of production management toward construction planning at the design
stage for successful building delivering with appropriate construction tools.
Robert F.C. and Michael C.L. (2001)
A concept and
contents of modern day construction work are changing in a complex direction,
the indication is a clear need for professionals to improve on modern
techniques for learning and practice. It is only in this way that the
construction industry can meet challenges and responsibilities imposed upon it
is an effective and efficient manner so as to ensure quality of production in
the construction industry. This will not only offer better value for money to
the client but will make profitability of the industry more stable for any
building project to be successfully execute on site, the constructors must
forcast, plan and put in place various production Management Documents
(Builder’s documents). Federal Government National Building Code (2006).
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEMS
Bamisile (2004), the
public at large, believe that most building product fails to offer value for
money, construction projected are said to cast for much, take too long to complete
and too prone to failure.
Ibironke T.O. (2009),
asserted that the problem experience in the course of managing the three
parameters, manifest primarily art two point in the total building process, i.e
at the interface between the client and designer and the interfaces between the
designer and the constructor. Ibironke T.O.(2009), further concluded that the
major problem of project falling to meet with the client requirement of time,
cost and quality (TCQ) includes the followings.
i Client and designer may misunderstand or
ii Agree on the detail of the brief with
regards to the buildings purpose performance or appearance.
iii The designer and constructor may through
misunderstanding or ignorance, misinterpret the objectives regarding, time,
cost and quality specified in relevant contract document.
iv Designer sometime may design a building
that cannot be built to the required levels of quality, constructed with time
1.3 RESEARCH AIM AND OBJECTIVES OF STUDY
The aim of the research is to explore
the impact of effective building production management in successful building
project delivery with the following objectives:
1) To identify factors affecting effective Building
2) To seek the importance of production
3) To articulate the benefits of effective
building production management to project delivery
1.4 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
This project is highly significant in
the following ways.
This study will help
in effective building production management.
It will help students
for research work and need for proper design and management of construction.
This project will be
useful to builders and other professionals in the building design and
1.5 RESEARCH QUESTION
research questions are found to drive the study.
1) What are the factors that effective
Building production management
2) What are the importance of production
3) What are the benefit of effective building
production management for project delivery.
1.6 STUDY AREA
This research was
carried out in Awka Anambra State. It examined. The impact of effective
building production management in successful building project delivery.
