Construction Project recommendation

Having studied the various options from the standpoint of costs, economic benefits, ease of construction, schedule impacts, as well as the all-important matter of alignment with user objectives and the project programme, the design professional is then in a position to recommend an option. Sometimes the recommendation will be not to proceed; ‘do nothing’ is always an option! Whatever the recommendation, the design professional will prepare a report for the owner describing the planning process, identifying the alternatives and explaining the rationale for the selected option. If the recommendation is to proceed, the report will suggest the appropriate steps to be taken to launch the design stage. The choice of whether to implement the recommendation is the owner’s, of course.
