  • Ernest Ebie Nigeria Since construction is site specific, it is very important to investigate the subsurface conditions which often influence the design of a facility as well as its foundation. The uncertainty in the design is particularly acute in geotechnical engineering so that the assignment of risks in this area should be a major concern. Since the degree of uncertainty in a project is perceived differently by different parties involved in a project, the assignment of unquantifiable risks arising from numerous unknowns to the owner, engineer and contractor is inherently difficult. It is no wonder that courts or arbitrators are often asked to distribute equitably a risk to parties who do not perceive the same risks and do not want to assume a disproportionate share of such risks.

  • Veronica Brown Australia In this first stage, the project manager formally establishes the project, obtains initial commitment or resources, and if required performs a feasibility study. Once the initiation checklist, business case (if needed) and project scope are completed, you will be in a position to objectively evaluate if your project can proceed; or if you have approval and required resources to proceed.

  • Opeyemi Adesope Nigeria This stage is a very important stage, it's just like doing a feasibility study for a business or project. In other words, there is need to know whether a particular project is worth pursuing in the first place.

  • Sally Uzoma Nigeria I liken this to counting the cost; where every information required is gathered so that you are aware of what challenges may be confronting you in the future as you embark on the project,these information will also be needful in the other phases.
