3- Construction Strategy
3.1 Project Zoning :
For more control & closer follow up of the project, buildings are divided into different zones, this is based on
different functions, structural nature such as expansion joints, or volume of work
The following presents the project elements and the number of zones for each:
The Nursing college : Divided to 3 zones
The External Works : Divided to 3 Zones
These Zones will include the structural, finishes and electromechanical works.
To further meet the requirement and needs of the project, those zones were developed into smaller sub zones as
follows :
For the structural purpose and requirements each zone will be divided to 2 sub zones:
Sub zone A1, Sub zone A2 for Zone A
Sub zone B1, Sub zone B2 for Zone B
Sub zone C1, Sub zone C2 for Zone C
For the Finishing & electromechanical purpose each zone will be divided to the following :
Class rooms/Corridors Sub zone
Shelter area sub zone (at basement only)
Transformer room sub zone (at basement only)
Mechanical room sub zone (at basement only)
Ramps Sub zone (at basement only)
Wet area sub zone
Stair case sub zone
Open court area 1
Open court area 2
Open court area 3
For External works Zones will be divided as follows:

4.2- Procurement

39
Procurement
Long lead items are the materials that are specified to be delivered from
abroad (such as diesel generator, AHUs, Ceramic tiles, marble tiles, etc)
or materials that needs a period for fabrication (such as doors, windows,
etc) therefore, it requires a long duration to arrive to the site and might
affect the installation works if not properly planned and tracked.
The material will be procured by the contractor and his subcontractor but
all procurement will be through the main contractor only, since its his
responsibility as per contract conditions to review and make necessary
coordination for his subcontractors procurement after the material
samples and catalogues are approved by the engineers.
Critical materials such as concrete, reinforcement and waterproofing,
water stop, termite control as well as the shelter equipment are affecting
the early activities of the project. The related submittals and approvals of
these types of materials will be finalized as early as possible.
Other long lead materials will be existing in our project, all these long lead
materials will be elaborated in the CCS and the material / procurement log,
to monitor and control its delivery on time and to ensure no delays will
occur.

External works
After completion of concrete skeleton and most of the faade works ( Elevations
1,2 & 3) the external works shall be carried out. The execution of external works will
be in two stages as follows :

Infrastructure Services
The infrastructure service should start with the lower network (storm work network
+ sanitary network) we will locate all pipe lines & manhole as per approved shop
drawings & coordination drawings. We will excavate for pipelines and manhole
location.
After fixing installing & fixing all manholes and pipelines in the approved levels and
locations, we will backfill the pipe lines in layers as specified.
The network of fresh water, brackish, fire protection and LPG will be done as per
approved drawings and method statement
All the external services such as laying of cables, installation of street lights,
communication network etc. will be carried out as per the approved shop drawings
and contract specification.
For all infrastructure piping works, the concrete encasement will be done as per
approved shop drawings & specifications
Hard Landscape
General method for all the hard landscape elements is the same, it will be carried
out after completion of infrastructure services. It will begin with site measurements
and placement of the precasted concrete curb stones along their specified path.
This will form the area for developing the asphalt roads as per contract
specifications.
Development of the pavements, paths and paved areas will be done on
compacted soil, by placing the polythene sheet if needed, concrete slabs and
mortar or sand beds for the specified finishes (precast concrete tiles, precast
concrete interlocking pavers)

80
As per the construction strategy and methodology, the external works will be divided to 4
Zones as follows :
Zone 1
Zone 2
Zone 3
The sequence of work for the external works will be related to the site logistics as well as the
concrete and cladding works. The execution of works will be planned to take place in four
stages as explained in the following:
Stage 1
Once the concrete works are completed, the steel reinforcement workshop will be no longer
required and will be removed from the site. In addition the cladding works for the east elevation
will be completed. Accordingly, the site will be ready for the external works at Zone 1 to be
carried out. Such works will include all infrastructure works as well as the landscaping works.
The material store will be one of the main obstacle in execution of the external works, therefore
its is planned to be relocated in the basement at Zone C (A plan for the new stores location is
attached).
In addition, the temporary vehicle road will be rerouted as illustrated on the attached plans.
The works that will take place in this stage are the following:
Infrastructure works
Kerbstone works
Sub grade for asphalt
Stage 2
After completion of stage 1. Cladding works at the south and west elevations is expected to be
completed. Accordingly, external works at Zone 2 will be carried out. Rerouting of the
temporary vehicle road will be taken into consideration. The works that will take place in this
stage are as follows:
Infrastructure Works
Kerbstone works
Sub grade for asphalt
Stage 3
After completion of stage 2. Cladding works at the north elevation is expected to be completed.
Accordingly, external works at Zone 3 will be carried out. Rerouting of the temporary vehicle
road will be taken into consideration. The works that will take place in this stage are as follows:

Infrastructure Works
Kerbstone Works
Sub grade for Asphalt

81
After completion of all above mentioned stages, final asphalt layers and interlock tiling
works shall be carried out. The sequence of these works shall be as per construction
strategy.
