FINAL PROJECT PLAN 2
Parking Garage Project Proposal
Giving the government due credit is a rare and unpleasant act, but modern day
project management is a product of the United States government (Meredith & Mantel, 2006).
Improving efficiency over a typical functional structure, project management gives management
the freedom to delegate work to the project manager while maintaining focus on every day
operations. The purpose of this paper is to propose a parking structure by describing the need for
the project, identifying stakeholders, defining goals, establishing a time and budget, listing
performance criteria, and developing a Statement of Work (SOW).
Background and Statement of Need
A downtown, professional building, owned by a real estate firm, houses several
offices for lawyers, a dentist, and other private businesses. However, congestion in the
downtown area is becoming a problem. A parking lot exists next to the professional building and
owned by the same real estate firm, but the parking lot fills quickly and its size is not adequate
for the number of people visiting the professional building daily.
Although the downtown is a desirable location, parking has become such a problem that
many businesses in the professional building are experiencing a decline in new clients, and
frustration from existing clients is mounting. Constructing a parking structure in the parking lot
next to the building will increase the lot’s holding capacity. The addition of a parking structure in
a high traffic area of downtown will help to reduce the congestion experienced by business
owners and clients alike. Restoring order to an overcrowded downtown will increase consumer
confidence by encouraging new clients to conduct business with the various firms that reside in
the downtown professional building.
