  1. Background:


You are the General Contractor and have been awarded a lump-sum contract to build Midland Medical Centre on behalf of your Client, YYZ Medical Holdings Inc.

You have learned that Toronto Water has subcontracted their service connection works to a company named SewMainCo Inc. As you know these service connections typically terminate at the property line. However, you as the GC contacted SewMainCo and asked them to submit a price to do the additional site servicing works on the private property of Midland Medical Centre, outside of the building but within the property liens. The submitted tender price and scope were suitable, and so you awarded the site servicing work on private property to SewMainCo.

Therefore, on this project, one trade (SewMain Co Inc.) will be completing the sewer and watermain work both on city property (in Midland Avenue), as well as on the private property of Midland Medical Centre.

The Client is concerned with safety during site servicing works, as well as proper methods used to tie into the existing site services on their property. Accordingly, they have asked you to submit a Construction Work Method Statement. (In real life, this would be created by the GC with a great deal of input by the Subcontractor, and sometimes created solely by the Sub).

In the period around 2-3 months prior to work starting on site, your project management team is working on scopes of work for tender and award of Subcontracts to your various Subcontractors. One of the first Subcontracts to be issued is the work package for Excavation & Backfilling, so you will complete this among the first of your SOWs.

During this time you are also planning your work by creating numerous staging plans, to figure out the sequence of the work, plan for site access & protection, and test the viability of different equipment to be used for the project.

  1. Requests for Information (RFIs):


Student teams may ask questions regarding the project to the Instructor using a standard RFI template. Both student RFIs and the Instructor’s RFI responses will be posted to Blackboard, and shared with all student teams in the class.







  1. Requirements:


For each of the Parts A, B, and C below, refer to the supplementary instructions posted to Blackboard in the Group Project #1 folder for additional instructions and/or examples.

  • Part A – Construction Work Method Statement: Sanitary Sewer [30 POINTS]


Create a Construction Work Method Statement with all of the following sub-sections to describe how you will safely complete the site servicing works for the project, focusing on the installation of the proposed storm sewer system only. BLDG 2204 Pg 3 of 4 Group Project #1


You must include the entire storm system from Midland Medical Centre to its connection in the existing storm sewers under Midland Avenue. Include both storm chambers in your Method Statement, including Control MH1 and the “Oil-Grit Separator”. However, you may omit the rest of the stormwater management system north of MH1 (including the MC3500 units stormwater chamber units).

You may also omit the method statements on the sanitary sewer and domestic water system. We will simplify this project to just include the storm system.

As resources you will use drawing SG-01, the materials from the in-lab activity, lecture slides, and lecture notes.

To reiterate, we will assume that one trade (SewMainCo) will install the entire storm sewer system, both on city property and on private property. So, when you refer to specific chamber sizes and depths, pipe lengths, diameters, slopes, etc., these should be the full pipe runs both on city and private property.

  • Description of Work
  • Work Sequence
  • Use a numbered list. For each step, ensure you include a description of the labour, materials, and equipment required to complete the step.
  • Resources.
    • This section summarizes the resources you listed within each step above, including: o Supervision
    • o Labour
    • o Materials
    • o Equipment
  1. Significant Hazards & Associated Control Measures.
  • Use a table format so it is clear to see how each hazard is properly controlled.
  1. Personal Protective Equipment



  • Part B – Scopes of Work: Excavation & Backfilling [25 POINTS]


You will write a contract scope of work (SOW) statement for the Excavation & Backfilling work package. In the real-world construction industry, SOWs are written first at the tender stage and included with tender packages to bidders; once a Subcontract scope and price are agreed upon, the SOW is included in the Subcontract and defines the contract responsibilities that the Subcontractor must fulfill.

To create these SOWs, you will use content from the lectures, lecture notes, lab activities, and quizzes (with quiz feedback). There will also be real-industry SOW examples provided on Blackboard. The purpose of this is to integrate the content from all of the above learning activities, and practice writing real industry documents. You should NOT search for SOWs on the Internet and copy/paste or paraphrase the content. BLDG 2204 Pg 4 of 4 Group Project #1



  1. Part C – Sequencing & Staging Plan for Below-Grade Concrete Works [45 POINTS] i. Sequencing & Staging Plan
  2. Assumptions/Calculations
  • Equipment Submittal


Provide a Sequencing & Staging Plan using the provided 11×17 template for the Below-Grade Construction phase, focusing the site setup and sequence of the concrete works. Submit a document with all assumptions & calculations you made in creating the staging & sequencing plan, including work rate calculations. Also provide a cut sheet for the boom truck or mobile crane and concrete pump you are planning on using to complete the concrete works.

  1. References:


The vast majority of content for this assignment should come from lectures, lecture notes, lab activities, quizzes and the associated quiz feedback, class discussions, and class RFIs.

Any material taken from outside these course materials must be correctly cited in APA format, both within the body of your paragraphs or bullet points, and also included in a separate references page.

Some examples:

  • In Part B you will review the Specs from the Midland Medical Centre project. Anything you use from these Specs should be included in your references.
  • In Part C: Sequencing & Staging Plans you may include work rates from RS Means CostWorks. These must be included in your references.




BLDG 2204 – Commercial Construction Technology

Group Project # 1 – Part A

Supplemental Instructions – Construction Work Method Statement

  1. Format


You must use the following format with all sub-sections (numbered i-v) and ensure you meet the requirements of each section as noted below.

  • Description of Work
  • This is a very brief summary statement of what the plan sets out.
  • Work Sequence
  • This is a numbered sequence, mirroring the sequence discussed in class lectures. However, you must add the labour, materials, and equipment required to each step.
  • For each numbered point, ensure you write in full sentences with a brief explanation of how the step is carried out, and make reference to the labour, materials, and equipment required to complete the step. Do not simply list the materials, labour, and equipment.
  • Make sure you reference: inverts; excavation depths; shoring or sloping/stepping excavation; chamber types, materials and sizes; pipe materials, diameters, lengths, slopes; connection points; equipment; names of the workers involved (e.g. pipe fitters, operators, labourers, etc.); supervision personnel; granular materials; etc.
  • Resources:
    • This is a summary list incorporating all the resources you noted in the Work Sequence. Provide a summary for each of the following:
    • o Supervision
    • o Labour
    • o Materials
    • o Equipment
  1. Significant Hazards & Associated Control Measures.
  • A Significant Hazard is something that could cause injury or bodily harm, or property damage. The Control Measure is the procedure taken to eliminate or reduce this risk.
  • Provide a minimum of five (5) hazards and control measures for the site servicing works.
  • The hazards and associated control measures shall be presented in table format so it is clear to see how each hazard is properly controlled.
  1. Personal Protective Equipment
  • A brief list of the PPE that workers must wear while conducting the site servicing works.

BLDG 2204 Pg 2 of 2 Group Project #1 Supplementary Instructions – Part A



  1. Drawings


Be sure to use the site servicing drawings by Cole Engineering Group for Midland Medical Centre to refer to invert depths. Also be sure to use the maintenance hole shop drawing provided in lab (OPSD 701.010) to help calculate depths to the bottom of excavation.

  1. External Resources & Examples


See further readings and examples for Construction Work Method Statements in the subsequent pages. These are taken from Cooke & Williams’ (2009) book, Construction Planning, Programming, and Control.

Note that the format in Cooke & Williams’ examples differ slightly than the requirements above for Group Project #1. For your work sequence, you are using a numbered list, and you must ensure that for each numbered item you clearly describe the labour, materials, and equipment required to complete that step. Therefore, your Work Method Statement will be much more detailed than the examples provided.

Also beware that since this was taken from a British publication, there are several terms that you should convert to Canadian industry terms. For example, plant, banksman, tipper wagons, and groundworkers are British terms. Some of the correct Canadian terminology for labour and/or supervision might include: pipefitter, labourer (e.g. to control grades, do backfill & compaction, etc.), machine operator, surveyor, field engineer. RS Means CostWorks may be able to help you identify the names of the crew members for site servicing work.

For your section on Significant Hazards & Control Measures, make sure to use a table so that an appropriate risk control is noted for each risk.



Group Project # 1 – Part B

Supplemental Instructions – Scope of Work (SOW) Statements

  1. Overview


You will compose a scope of work (SOW) statement for Midland Medical Centre, for the Excavation & Backfilling work package. In the real-world construction industry, a SOW is written for each Subcontractor and the SOW becomes part of the Subcontract between General Contractor and the Subcontractor. Your SOW will define what and how the Excavation & Backfilling Subcontractor will complete all of their work related to the Midland project.

  1. General Guidelines on Writing a SOW Statement:


Scopes of Work (SOWs) outline a Subcontractor’s contract obligations.

It is recommended that you use a numbered list for each SOW section. It is recommended that you do NOT use a paragraph style.

You may begin each item in your numbered list with the phrase “Subcontractor shall…”.

A SOW statement should try to be both broad and specific. While this might seem paradoxical, we try to be broad/general so that we don’t accidentally forget an item. The phrase, “Including but not limited to” helps us be general while still listing some specific items. We also need to be specific about certain requirements, such as the amount of work space that the Excavation Sub will dig outside of the foundation walls, which facilitates formwork and waterproofing/drainage of the foundation walls.

If you were writing a SOW for the Site Servicing work package, your SOW might include the following items:

  1. Subcontractor shall supply and install all storm sewer work including but not limited to:
  2. Subcontractor shall supply and install all sanitary sewer work including but not limited to:
  3. Subcontractor shall supply and install all watermain work including but not limited to:
  4. Subcontractor shall supply and install all storm water management system work including but not limited to:
  5. Subcontractor shall coordinate all work according to the General Contractor’s schedule. • Do not include a work sequence in the SOW.
  • Do not include costs in the SOW.
  • You will mostly NOT include quantities of work to be completed in the SOW; generally, the SOW will say to complete everything on the drawings. Only when the Subcontractor must do things beyond what is shown in the drawings, then perhaps we indicate a



Items that are NOT included in an SOW Statement: BLDG 2204 Pg 2 of 3 Group Project #1 Supplementary Instructions – Part B



specific quantity. (e.g. specific amount of work space to excavate outside foundation wall).



  1. Specific Items for the Excavation & Backfilling SOW: • Comment on all of the labour, materials, and equipment required to complete the work.
  • Site preparation
  • Bulk & detail excavation
  • Backfilling
  • Trucking & Disposal
  • Layout. The GC pays for a Surveyor to provide layout control points and grades. However, the Subcontractor must use these points while excavating. Once the bulk excavation is complete, the Forming/Concrete trade contractor would provide layout for concrete structures, including below-grade structures such as footings as well as the SOG.
    • Site Servicing & Under-Slab Drains: the Excavation Subcontractor normally does NOT complete excavation for pipe trenches within the excavation for under-slab drainage, NOR for any of the site servicing work. o One main exception to this is the sump pit; as this is a cast-in-place structure, its detail excavation would be treated the same as the excavation for a concrete footing.
    • Address areas of interface between the Subcontractor and other trade contractors. o Think about how this Subcontractor must perform their work to facilitate the work of Others.
    • o Think about item(s) that another trade contractor must perform to facilitate the work of this Subcontractor.
    • Think of any temporary conditions that need to be built or constructed which are not on the drawings but which we know must get built in order for the work to be completed: o Safe methods for excavation o Safe methods for triaxle trucks to approach the site and enter the excavation o Access ramp (to access the excavation)
    • o Work space
    • o Temporary dewatering: groundwater is always expected during excavation; the GC needs the Excavator to dig temporary sump pits/trenches and the GC will use sump pumps to remove this water.
    • o Note for a project such as Midland, the GC would be responsible to set up site perimeter fencing and gates.
    • Exclusions. When we are 100% certain that another trade will perform a specific work item and this is relevant to the Subcontractor’s SOW, we may note that this is work “performed by Others”. However be careful, we don’t want to exclude too much in a contract. This is a balance you will find over time with experience.


  1. External Resources & Examples:

BLDG 2204 Pg 3 of 3 Group Project #1 Supplementary Instructions – Part B


  1. Specifications

The Specifications can often be helpful when writing an SOW. Recall that the Specs are another contract document, composed by the consultants (Architect, Mech. Eng., etc.). The SOW will reference relevant sub-sections from the Specs, which will contractually include these sections as part of the Subcontract. Therefore, the Specs should not be repeated in your SOW, however the Architect discusses points in the Specs that may frame your thinking on the SOW, or help you remember items you may have forgotten to comment on.

  • Read the Midland Medical Centre Specs sub-sections on “Aggregate Materials”, “Clearing & Grubbing”, “Soil Stripping & Stockpiling”, “Rough Grading”, “Excavation, Trenching, and Backfiling”, and “Granular Sub-Base”.
  • Reference these sub-section numbers in your SOW, similar to the examples by Menkes Developments provided on the Blackboard site.
  • Note that the Specifications are another contract document that describe the outcomes of the finished work, but not everything contained within a Specs section is necessarily part of a Subcontractor’s scope of work.
  • As the Specs indicate finished outcomes for the project, they are missing many temporary aspects of the work; e.g. layout, access ramp, work space, etc. These temporary aspects of the work are required to complete the work and must be included in your SOW.
  • Also note: No copy/paste allowed from the Specs. Anything you take from the Specs should be referenced in APA format and included in your references page.


  1. SOW Examples from Menkes Developments

On the Blackboard site, find attached two real SOW examples for the Masonry and

Carpentry work packages. These SOWs are from real GTA high-rise condo projects by Menkes Developments, and were provided as a courtesy to George Brown College for educational purposes.

You may adopt a similar format and approach as the Menkes examples, except you are writing an SOW specific to the Midland project and specific to Excavation & Backfilling.

The section called “GENERAL NOTES” with Notes 1 to 6 is a general section that Menkes includes with all SOWs. You do not need to include this section with your SOW; include only the specific section pertaining to Excavation & Backfilling. The General Notes section has been provided to you reference so you can see what real industry SOWs look like.

Group Project # 1 – Part C

Supplemental Instructions – Sequencing & Staging Plan

  1. Background & Assumptions


Assume that bulk excavation is fully complete except for your excavation access ramp which will remain in place throughout the concrete works. The access ramp has been used during bulk excavation to drive triaxle trucks down into the excavation to remove soil. During the concrete works stage, you will use this access ramp to drive equipment into the excavation, which may include concrete trucks and/or a boom truck. Therefore on your staging plans you will draw the excavation ramp in an appropriate location that provides access off Midland Avenue, and which is in the best strategic place for other work occurring around this stage.

You will assume use of a boom truck (in the excavation) or mobile crane (outside the excavation) to assist your formwork crew in hoisting and moving formwork for foundation walls and column forms. A boom truck would be able to drive up and down the ramp to get closer to formwork elements which need to be moved around.

Assume you have three formwork crews – one working on strip footings, one on pad footings & piers, and a third crew on foundation walls. First figure out your production cycle for each crew working on these different structural elements (e.g. linear metres or square metres of footing or foundation wall) – this can come from lecture/lecture notes as well as RS Means CostWorks.

The work will require a boom truck or mobile crane that has enough reach to strip the foundation wall formwork and move the forms down to the next section of foundation wall based on this. You may assume that a single wall form (e.g. Aluma Gang Form) weighs 1,200 kg per 12m x 3.6m section. To pour concrete, you may assume use of the same boom truck or mobile crane, using a 1.0 m3 concrete bucket, for which you can calculate the mass.

  1. Requirements
  • All work must be drawn to scale, paying attention to the scale on the 11×17 staging plan provided.
  • You must draw your work on the 11×17 plan (no other paper size accepted). You may complete work by hand or electronically, as long as you meet all requirements herein.
  • To submit your work electronically on Blackboard, you must scan (using a proper document scanner) your work to scale and submit a PDF with paper size 11×17. No other paper sizes accepted. Photos of your work are not accepted.
  • Include a title block in a similar format and level of quality as the Architect’s drawings, and ensure essential title block elements are present: project name, address, scale, north arrow, drawing title.
  • For all items drawn on the Sequencing & Staging Plan, use as many different colours as possible to clarify different elements, and use a legend or labels to clearly identify each.
  • Concrete sequence:
  1. Outline the strip footings, pad footings & piers, and foundation walls in separate colours.

BLDG 2204 Pg 2 of 2 Group Project #1 Supplementary Instructions – Part C



  • Show the sequence for the strip footings, pad footings & piers, and foundation walls pours with dotted lines and tag & number each segment to show its sequence. Use {SF1, SF2, SF3…} for strip footings; {PF1, PF2, PF3…} for pad footings & piers; and {W1, W2, W3…} for foundation walls. Tag and label any other concrete structures as required.
  • In your assumptions & calculations documents, provide a table to clarify the sequence and work rates. If some items are to be poured together (e.g. PF1 to PF4 all poured on the same day), you may group these together. Include a separate column in which you provide the crew size and duration for the element(s) noted.
  • The sequence shall be based on reasonable quantities and production rates, and confirmed in your assumptions & calculations document.
  • Staging items to include:
  • Site security fence around the site perimeter
  • Entrance gate
  • Site office trailer
  • Excavation access ramp, with top slope of 1:3 & side slope of 1:1
  • Draw the boom truck or mobile crane to scale, parked in one location and showing how the truck moves down one section of foundation walls to the next section.
  • Select a boom truck or mobile crane with adequate weight-lifting capacity and reach to achieve the objectives noted above. Include a print-out of the boom truck specs with your submission.
