Project Management assignment on House Renovation



You have recently been appointed by a large property investor in the UK who
wishes to renovate a house. To keep his costs to a minimum he likes to have only
one worker working on each activity. The property renovation involves various
tasks which he estimates will take one worker the times shown in the table
below:

Activity Time needed to complete
Substantial repairs to the

roof 8 days
Internal structural work 4 days
Electrical work 7 days
Plumbing 6 days
Installing a new kitchen 3 days
Installing a new bathroom 4 days
Garden 5 days
Plastering 4 days
Internal decoration 5 days
Fitting carpets 1 day
Outside paintwork 5 days

The roof and structural work must be completed before any other activities
(inside or outside) can commence. Once these are done, the external jobs can
happen at any stage. However, inside the house, the plumbing and electrics must
be completed before the plastering can be done. The plastering must be complete
before the new kitchen and bathroom can be installed. Decoration can only
happen once the kitchen and bathroom are in place, and carpets can only be
fitted after decorating.
The property developer knows that to keep his budget on target, all work needs
to be completed in 6 weeks. His team only works from Monday to Friday. Can it
be done? Which activities is it most important for the property developer to keep
on track?
The developer has several other projects on the go at the same time and decides
that he can only spare two of his team to work on this project. By assigning
activities to Worker 1 and Worker 2 show how this is possible.
