ABSTRACT

Many public projects consume considerable time and suffer major delays during the pre­design phase due to lengthy approval processes and then face consequential changes due to insufficient scope definition. Such delays are costly to the government, and draw many complaints from the public who are to benefit from these projects. New database management technologies and the Internet and have provided opportunities to overcome the limitations of planning during the pre-design phase and improve the accessibility and functionality of needed data and information. This paper discusses the development of an interactive Web-based Project Pre-Design Phase Information (P3I) System. The Objective of this P3I system is to help planners and decision-makers in improving the management of the pre-design phase of the construction of public projects. It does this by providing a web site and a server to provide needed data through the Internet and the internal computer network of the authoritative agencies. In addition to delivering pre­design documents and plans via the Web and providing interactive feedback, the system enables some practical work to be distributed via the Internet; results of the work are monitored and analyzed. This paper presents the capabilities of the P3I system and discusses the implementation stages of a Web-based P3I system. It is concluded that it is time-effective to establish a Web-based P3I system for planning purposes and that it can benefit both the planners and the government end-user sector of the project.
