Project Implementation, Control, and Termination Paper and Presentation
Project management is the “application of knowledge, skills and techniques to execute projects effectively and efficiently” (What is project management?). Using project management allows management to assign tasks to employees whereas they focus on the everyday operations. This paper will propose a parking garage by showing that there is a need for it, by identifying stakeholders, determining goals, creating a time line and budget, and developing a plan or a statement of work that will outline the steps of this project. Team B will also identify the

Identify Completion Date
Finding the right location is top priority for this project. The garage must not be far away from either the shopping complex or the casinos. If it is the project may fail because it does not alleviate the inconvenience of walking for the shoppers. The projected length of time for this project is 12-18 months. This takes the weather into account and gives ample time for any unforeseen problems with suppliers, contractors, the city, and any permit problems.
Budget
The national average of a five level parking garage is approximately 145,000 square feet (Reed Construction Data, 2012). The project will require the hiring of an architect and a contractor. The architect duties will include creating a schematic design and draft floor plans, finalize drawings, obtain necessary permits and serve as the development manager of the project. The contractor will provide the services and materials need for the job and is responsible in hiring subcontractors. The national average for the cost per square foot to build a five level parking garage is between $50 and $70 (FixR, 2011). On average masons and excavators charge $70 per hour, electricians charge $65 to $85 per hour and plumbers charge somewhere between $45 and $65 per hour, so this project will take into consideration all of the hourly rates for all specialties (FixR, 2011). Taking from the national average costs this project will cost $65 a square foot
