PREFACE
This tiny effort has been made in the direction to appreciate the importance of electro-mechanical and plumbing work in the construction industry. This will serve as a hand book with ready reckoned to all professionals engaged in the MEP work. It will also provide a ready made guidance to all contractors and sub contractors at site. This book clearly defines the roll and responsibility of each one involved in the execution of the project. It is observed in my long years of experience in the field that there is always a dispute within the agencies regarding administrative procedures to be followed. Keeping that thing in mind we tried to segregate all administrative obligations to be adhered by each agency. It is hoped that this small effort will bring a big change in the professionals approach engaged in the construction industry. Sincerely, Dr. S.L.Sharma Date: 10-09-2007

REFERENCE STANDARD& DOCUMENTS

3- Source of Documents

The philosophy of the electro mechanical project management is drawn from ISO 9001 (2000) and British standards. However, every particular project is guided by its own project contract and supervised by quality manual.

Main documents referred for smooth operation and implementation of quality standards of the project are : 1.ISO 9001( 2000) 2. BS standards 3.ASTM standards 4. ASHRE standards 5.IEE regulation 16 th edition (Electrical) 6. IP Standards. 7. Local authorities rules and regulations. 8. MEP Guide 9. Contractual documents(applicable to specific project) such as : (a) Specification manual (b) BOQ (c) Tender drawings (d) Fidic-2005

PROJECT COORDINATION

4- Co-ordination

4.1 The project co-ordination is the main operational and management tool to Execute the project smoothly and timely. Co-ordination among all agencies such as client, consultant, main contractor and other subcontractor are most essential to have proper reporting system to Over look and supervise all activities in progress at site. Generally the following chain is maintained:

Client(Management)

Consultant

Main Contractor

All sub contractor

4.2

Co-ordination between client and consultant

4.2.1 It is the main obligation of the consultant to appraise the progress of the Project to the client periodically. 4.2.2 Where Specified with in the tender documents or in contract documents, specific client reporting templates (formats) and coordination procedures will Be implemented. In other cases the formats published/distributed by Consultant will be utilized and followed. 4.2.3 Should client need any direct reporting on specific formats the same will be Distributed to all concern by consultant. 4.2.4 Generally all reporting to the client or his representative will be followed or routed through consultant. However client as the owner of the project can direct any agency involved in the project to submit specific reports. All agencies are requiring submitting the desired report to client under intimation to consultant if not directed to do so by the client.

4.3 Coordination between consultant and main contractor

4.3.1 It is the main obligation and sole responsibility of the contractor to convert designed project in to a reality. 4.3.2 To fulfill this task the consultant becomes the main controller of the all project. 4.3.3 It is the sole responsibility of the consultant that all local and international norms including safety and environment protection are adhered and followed. 4.3.4 The quality standards are maintained as per designed specification laid down in the construction documents. 4.3.5 The consultant or his representative will act as main controller of the project. 4.3.6 The main contractor will keep a close association with the consultant. All drawing/material will be approved by engineer before putting them in use. 4.3.7 The contractor will invite engineer for all technical activities prior decided. 4.3.8 It is the duty of consultant to remove all project bottlenecks. 4.3.8 The contractor is obliged to bring a clear picture of all activities going on at the site by submitting periodic reports. 4.3.9 The contractor will use all specific reporting formats advised by consultant for all project activities. 4.3.10It is the sole responsibility of contractor to provide all infrastructure facilities for his and engineers staff. 4.3.11The contractor is to provide all method statement as per enclosed template.

10

4.4 Co ordination between main contractor and sub contractor

4.4.1 All sub contractors will work under the supervision of main contractor. 4.4.2 All sub contractors are compulsorily registered with local government. 4.4.3 All submittals submitted by sub contractor should be routed through main contractor. 4.4.4 Main contractor should act as intermediate agency between consultant and sub contractor. 4.4.5 All the periodic report submitted by sub contractor should be forwarded to engineer by main contractor. 4.4.6 It is mandatory for main contractor to take the approval of all sub contractors engaged for project activities. 4.4.7 Main contractor is required to pass on all standard formats of engineer to sub contractor. 4.4.8 It is the sole authority of engineer to deal directly with any of the sub contractor wherever required or desired so by engineer.
