The addition of a permanent structural improvement or the restoration of some aspect of a property that will either enhance the property’s overall value or increases its useful life. Although the scale of the capital improvement can vary, capital improvements can be made by both individual homeowners and large-scale property owners.
The main objective of commissioning is to effect the safe and orderly handover of the unit from the constructor to the owner, guaranteeing its operability in terms of performance, reliability, safety and information traceability. Additionally, when executed in a planned and effective way, commissioning normally represents an essential factor for the fulfilment of schedule, costs, safety and quality requirements of the project.
Of the three primary objectives of the construction project – cost, schedule and quality – quality is the most difficult to quantify. Although the extent to which budget constraints have been met can be measured in dollars, and how well a project met its schedule can be measured in days; the assurance of quality, in relation to the project end user expectations and satisfaction alludes even the most experienced and qualified construction manager. The key quality attributes that define quality in the constructed project (Corbett, 1997) may be used to gage the relative success and compliance of the contractor in meeting the project design intent throughout the major phases of construction execution.
Comprehensive oversight of every stage of a construction project provides the greatest possible benefit by keeping projects on time, on budget, and assuring that the outcome meets the designer’s and the owner’s standards. That assurance is the mission of Stealth Projects construction managers and project representatives.

This stage encompasses the delivery of schematic, developed and documented designs, and refined programs and budgets, which will inform the tendering stage.
Key activities and tasks undertaken by a project manager at this stage may include:

The feasibility study is a detailed analysis of a preferred facility development strategy as determined in the Master Plan Study. It should enable the business / property to fully determine the outcome, which will provide the most, cost efficient and effective delivery of its services. The preferred options for developing facilities to accommodate service delivery can then be determined.
The feasibility study will confirm the need for a specific capital project(s) to be undertaken to enhance the delivery of services by the business / property and assess the viability of the project outcomes in capital and recurrent financial terms. It also investigates the project objectives as described in the functional brief. The feasibility study will review the viable range of options available. These options should then be evaluated against a set of agreed criteria. The feasibility study generally recommends a course of action and a realistic estimate of the total project end cost and life cycle cost.
Any development proposal should seek to (in order of priority):
The feasibility study, subject to the approval by the project manager responsible for the project, may be carried out in conjunction with the Master Plan Study.
A Feasibility Study comprises the following activities:
In some instances the Master Plan and Feasibility Study may be conducted as a concurrent process. This is particularly relevant for simple projects (e.g. small scale or straightforward projects). Reference is made to the Master Plan Study Guideline.

Wherever possible, sustainable procurement considerations should be integrated into the procurement process at the very outset – i.e. at the early procurement planning stage. This should certainly be the case with high value procurements and the development of a procurement plan. It is important that sustainability be considered early in the procurement process, as later in the cycle there is progressively less scope to add value through improved sustainability outcomes.
During demand analysis key stakeholders should be identified and sustainability issues introduced into discussions regarding the proposed procurement and its objectives. This will facilitate a better understanding of what sustainability considerations might be incorporated into the requirement specifications. End users, business analysts and technical officers are important stakeholders in this process, as they may be responsible for or have a major influence over developing the specifications.
