2. The building schedule

A: I see there are some workmen on the site. When is the building work due to start?

B: Well. It’ll take three weeks to demolish the old building and clear away the debris. We should be ready to start the construction work in week 23.

A: How long will the sub-constructors be on site?

B: About ten weeks in total if everything goes according to plan.

A: I’m sure it will. So, we should be able to start moving the machinery in during week 34. I’ll confirm that date with our suppliers.

to demolish – руйнувати

debris – сміття, уламки

3. Project planning

A: Who’s in charge of the construction project?

B: We’ve taken on a civil engineer on a nine-month temporary contract. He’ll oversee the whole project. In fact we’re having a project meeting at 3 p.m. this afternoon to allocate responsibilities and finalise the time schedule. Why don’t you join us?

A: I can’t. I’m afraid. I’ve got another meeting scheduled for 2:30 p.m.

to allocate – розподіляти

4. Making progress

A: How’s the building work again?

B: Well, I’m afraid we’ve had a slight delay.

A: What’s the problem? We really can’t have any delays at this stage. We’re working to a really tight schedule and we’re already over budget.

B: The cement arrived late but don’t worry. I’m confident we can still meet the deadline. The crew is on stand-by and as soon as the concrete has set we can get started again.

A: OK. Keep me informed. It must be ready on time.

Deadline – крайній термін
