Date (MM/DD/YYYY):


1. Executive Summary

The project under review is the New Dormitory of NEU within the campus. NEU hopes that the new dormitory will solve the issue of dormitory shortage in the campus that the establishment has experienced for the past few years. Apart from solving the issue of shortages, the new building to house the dormitory will give students a new campus experience, as it will encompass other areas of welfare and recreation for students. As such, the establishment sees the project as strategic and significant to the needs of students. The project will address all needs of students and will support the establishment’s strategic context for a conducive situation for learning and recreation.

Based on previous projects within the establishment and around the location, the project appears great such that it will influence future investment and architectural designs for the establishment. Furthermore, the project will have a constructive influence on the organizational thinking and framework of the establishment. As such, the assessment and determination of the project scope is highly imperative since extensive project range may constrict the fund usage and lead to monetary predicament for the establishment. Provide a brief project summary in the space below. On the other hand, a small scope would appear insufficient to the establishment’s strategic plan and success factors thus, it is highly significant to maintain an effective and feasible project scope. In fact, an effective and suitable scope statement is the realization benchmarks of the project and implementation of the establishment’s approaches.

The project under review aims to establish a convenient and an objective context of new students-staff relations and operations. As such, an area measuring 220,000 square feet will be the main element of the project. In addition, insulated dining halls with high efficiency gas furnace will be predominant in the project. On the other hand, the project will involve major partnership with consultancy firms. The project team, which I head, will develop new systems and approaches for the entire project, although the real construction will go a private company.

The scope statement will delineate the predominant deliverables and cultivate a consistent strategy for the project. Furthermore, the project team will develop the exclusion and inclusion of the project range grounded on the project, technical, and regulatory requirements. The scope will also encompass key features of the project such as milestones and constraints and the approach of the project.
