 What is this assignment worth?

Note: This is a group assignment (gr. of 4-5)plagiarism will not be tolerated.


Assume a site with levelled and completed earthwork.

Since you have received architectural plans only and not detailed structural, building services, equipment, civil plans etc, you may need to make some assumptions about quantities of materials etc. Also, you may not have an idea on material, labour costs etc.

You should undertake some research (e.g. Rawlingsons guide) to obtain approximate costs and specify activity durations to the best of your ability. You will not be penalised for not knowing exact costs and quantities; this is not the purpose of this assignment.
