Construction project management using ASTM UNIFORMAT II improves building investment performance with proven standardized value engineering methods.

The UNIFORMAT II classification enables a seamless link of all phases of a building life cycle - from facilities development through facilities management.

The integration of the standard into the design process results in improved communications and coordination among all project participants, an accelerated design, and significantly increased productivity.

With UNIFORMAT's classification for building elements and related sitework, the Project Manager has an essential tool to control project scope, cost, time and quality.

 

Construction Project Management Benefits

When undertaking the construction of a building, owners, developers, project managers, architects, engineers and cost managers always have the same thing in mind - to control the project scope, cost, time and quality.

Achieving this requires effective communications among all the project participants. A productive exchange of information helps identify potential problems early - even before design begins.

The result is reduced design and construction delays, cost overruns and claims. UNIFORMAT II helps do all this and more.

Applying The Standard

There are many practical applications in planning, design, facilities and construction project management to standardize reporting and link all phases of a building life cycle. Some of the applications include:

  • Building Design Management - This definitive article, entitled "New Design Management Tools for Project Managers," appeared in the May 1998 issue of "THE PROJECT MANAGER" and is about improving project team communications, coordination and productivity with UNIFORMAT.
  • Construction Project Management - This article, entitled "UNIFORMAT II Improves University Project Performance," describes how UNIFORMAT helped control the project scope, cost, time and quality for the Faculty of Architecture building at the University of Montreal. The design team used it for elemental schematic and design development specifications and elemental program and design estimates.
