For the Huntsville Plant, there are many risks that can take place in the process of building the plant. (1) Cost (2) Weather (3) Unscheduled Events and (4) Equipment, can be events that can affect un-migrated risks for this project.
The first risk identified would be cost... You have to plan your budget and assure that the in the planning phrase that you have enough in your budget to pay contractors, purchase unexpected equipment/ or unexpected building material. If you purchased equipment that does not function properly, you may have to do bids with other contractors for equipment that may come in higher that previous allocated for.
The second risk is weather permitting. Weather can be so funny especially in the south. it can go from a sunny day to a rainy, tornado and hurricane day. With the weather monitors, daily monitoring the weather, PM’s have to do 24 hour continuous advance monitoring, this will cut down on the risk of building delays. The building foundation has to be dry and there can be concerns about the capabilities of the foundation when it comes to the weather. Also, cost plays another part as a risk with whether, you have to take into consideration the cost of building in the summer month’s v/s the winter months. This could be a difficult task to handle but monitoring the weather and getting the right contractors who can perform no matter what the weather is can cut back on delays and risk.
The third risk events beyond the PM’s control such as unforeseen events when they obtaining permits and licenses, or personnel getting hurt while on the job. Getting a license/permit and approval to built on land can be tricky because you need a variety of building inspections for approval such as Plumbing Permit, HVAC Permit, Electrical Permit and Water and Sewage Permit. If you can’t obtain approved permits from either one of the various departments this can cause a delay in the building project. The PM’s should work closely with the Alabama Registered Engineers and Architects to ensure that each one of the permits are in compliance when it time to complete various projects. They should have weekly meetings with the State Fire Department to make sure that they are within code violations.
Another unforeseen incident is Critical Personnel getting hurt on the job. If one employee gets hurt, this can be a delay in work because they have to find someone to replace the previous employ and this can have weekly delays in the project. The last risk can be equipment delay or manufacturing. Because this is a plant some of the machinery can have the wrong specification codes and not meet the safety requirements. As a PM you should contact the Safety and Health inspector for the requirements for licenses, permits or notification to use the machinery/equipment. Each time equipment is delivered you should assure that the risk identification has been done and the manufacturer’s risk assessment is supplied. If any...
