ABSTRACT

Prudent management throughout the construction phases leads towards the success of project. On the basis of need and objectives of the project, construction can be brownfield (redevelopment of existing structure) construction or Greenfield [construction on land] construction. Changes in brownfield construction site are more as compared to green field construction site. Changes is addition, deletion and/or rework to the scope and goal of project. Changes may lead towards the effects like disputes, revision of drawings, schedule, cash flow etc. These changes can impact the project in terms of cost, time and quality. This study mainly focuses on cost parameter and changes during planning and execution phases are considered. As per the methodology, List of the changes was made with the help of daily observation at the brownfield construction site and discussion with the site expertise. Cost of these changes were found out in change log with the help of MS Excel sheet. To find the variation in planned cost due to this change cost, planned cost was calculated by giving resource allocation to the various activities on MS Project. This study shows that the project cost overrun due to changes is 2.85%. Even if the percentage calculated seems very small in comparison with total cost of project, it gives significant value.
