During this stage of the project, contractors must guarantee the full implementation of all prerequisites and anticipations from the pre-work phase to ensure the safe execution of tasks.

Project coordination

Contractors hold the responsibility of keeping the CU Project Manager informed regarding site plans, mitigation, or elimination of potential impacts on occupants or the public. Communication should encompass, but not be limited to:

  1. Dusty or odorous work activities that might impact the building occupants
  2. Work involving hazardous building materials
  3. Tasks generating noise and heavy vibrations
  4. Utilization of equipment such as cranes
  5. Disturbance to traffic flow

Regular meetings must be conducted to ensure that hazards, both existing and new, are thoroughly discussed, and appropriate measures are taken to inform all stakeholders and mitigate the identified hazards. In addition to routinely scheduled meetings, the following meetings should be held:

  • Before high-risk work
  • Incident follow-up and recommendations
  • New equipment, machinery
  • Completion of various stages of work
  • New work environment
  • Amendments or adjustments to the work process
