Access to construction time objectiveness



One from important requirements of successfully managed building project is determining of contract parameters (mainly time and costs) already in project preparation phase. Such consideration requires a significantly objectified analysis of both influential parameters. Our research is focused especially to risks resulting from construction process acceleration. This phenomenon is in construction evident for several years. The construction processes parameters allow the time regulation of every operation. For all that the contractor must consider fairly, by what measures and at which “rate” he is able to perform the contract construction time. On the other hand the client must accept objective time possibilities of construction and reconciliation of time parameters between client and contractor must occur. The paper presents an approach to reconciliation of construction time parameters between client and contractor and affords opportunity to model the trend of contract construction times in various projects segments. The spatial and organizational possibilities of construction process development in individual projects segments determines the measures for performance of construction time similar to contract construction time as more as possible. Fifty five construction projects were analyzed. Considering the heterogeneousness of their spatial and technological structure, these projects
were divided to following segments: multifunctional buildings, shopping centres, production plants and residential buildings. Trends of contract construction time and simulated measures impacts (construction time shortening) were derived for all the segments. The paper presents a possible approach to objectification of building time parameters. The point of the research consists in estimation of expected time limits for intended construction that are necessary for client as well as for forward contractor.
