Lesson Learned number: 39
Impact: Cost, Schedule, Scope
Lesson Learned/Best Practice
A scope gap was identified where labor was not bought out to collect, palletize and load BLOX headwall racks, panelized bathroom racks, rigging gear and mover jacks onto long haul shipping trailers contracted directly with BLOX.
Ensure BLOX install foreman/subcontractor leadership responsible for loading BLOX hardware/equipment discussed project strategy at BLOX kickoff meeting on site to avoid confusion when BLOX install is complete in an area, phase, floor or project and hardware needs to be returned to BLOX facility in AL.
Ensure the specific phasing of BLOX delivery AND installation (if those two activities do not run finish-to-start) is reviewed in detail during the BLOX pre-mobilization meeting held on site.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
Update BLOX install playbook to identify this scope responsibility and assign it to the GC to buyout with BLOX component installation.
On future projects, the BLOX install playbook should clearly identify that scope responsibility and the GC should ensure that labor responsibility is included with the installation of the BLOX components.
