In the life cycle of any project, there will almost always be unexpected problems and questions that crop up. When these issues arise, you have to be ready to deal with them — or they can potentially affect the project's outcome. Since most issues are, by their nature, unexpected, how do you make sure you'll be able to deal with them quickly and effectively?
Between Upgrading and Resettlement: Fieldwork reflections from locations in Colombo By Tim Wickson, on 17 September This post was prepared by Balint Horvarth, Mateo Lu, Fernando Toro, Nada Sallam and Karlene Stubbs with editorial support from Tim Wickson and Barbara Lipietz Ruth McLeod Rapid urban development in Colombo Introduction It is not every day that 35 post-graduate students from 21 countries have the opportunity to travel to a new country, partner with local organisations and policy makers and learn from the urban policies and practices at play there.
After months of desk-based preparation, we left London for Colombo Sri Lanka with only one certainty in mind: Our ambition was to listen to the city and reflect on what the different voices were telling us. The URP aims to deliver a slum-free Colombo by by moving 75, households out of so-called under-served settlements and into high-rise housing projects.

Today’s project management involves much more, and people in. Now I am telling to you that in our final year engineering project we the students of 10 people was working on a “construction and demolition waste-A sustainable approach”. In this topic we were searching so many contents that to read in depth in this topic. During my tenure of office, I undertook the construction of new-generation CATV network, which was the largest project in the company’s history with a long .
Working in collaboration with recent planning, sociology and social work graduates from three local universities, our research benefited from in-depth discussions with affected local communities; face to face meetings with government officials; as well as structured inputs from a host of Colombo based experts and activists.
Based on these experiences, we were able to build up nuanced understandings of how urban and housing policies operate at different scales in Colombo; problematise the under-served settlement and slum-free discourses; and begin exploring cracks for alternative urban development approaches in the city.
During our time in Colombo, we were encouraged to blend an appreciation of theory with an awareness of how urban practices get materialised in the city. This approach helped unpack relationships between different actors; and exposed the differential impacts of vested interests and influences at different scales.
We worked with communities from across three sites in Colombo — Muwadora Uyana, Nawagampura and Mayura Place — and each contributed uniquely to our picture of the city. Nada Sallam Solid waste collection in Nawagampura Site 1: Muwadora Uyana In the case of Muwadora Uyana, we chose to investigate how the Urban Regeneration Programme had impacted the quality of life enjoyed by those families and individuals who had been moved from settlements across the city into the high-rise housing complex that is Muwadora Uyana.
As far as possible, and given the limited research time available, our action research and propositions were guided by the ideas and themes that arose from initial discussions with residents themselves. This approach enabled us to identify what quality of life meant to the relocated residents; avoiding the imposition of a normative framing.
High-rise housing blocks in Muwadora Uyana Building out from this embedded definition; we pursued a mixed-methods approach comprised of floor by floor spatial analysis; participatory mapping with young people and children; and semi-structured interviews with over 30 residents.
In so doing, we were able to unpack why it was that some people who are relocated into high-rises are able to thrive, whilst others struggle to survive. As well as highlighting the importance of embedded research and face-to-face dialogue with effected communities, this project served to challenge the assumption that all people have the capacity to adapt to living in high-rise conditions.
In fact, for many groups and individuals, their agency for adaptation is limited. As such, by introducing agency as a crucial determinant of quality of life, our research problematised the fairness argument often-used to defend a relocation policy based on standardised, one-size-fits-all apartments.
Indeed, we argue that this reframing creates space to consider alternative options for both current and future residents alike. Nawagampura Nawagampura is a thriving neighbourhood originally established as a relocation site under the Million Houses Programme in the s. Over the past 35 years, the settlement has evolved and consolidated, stitching its residents into the fabric of the city.
In the main, this classification relates to the fact that many residents still lack secure tenure; although a number of structures also lack individual toilets and others suffer from periodic flooding issues.
In the context of state-led efforts to transform Colombo into a world-class city, all neighbourhoods classified by the state as underserved have been slated for future relocation. Working directly with residents, community-leaders, and members of resident-associations we sought to provide a more nuanced picture of the challenges and opportunities associated with living in settlements such as Nawagampura.
By helping reframe underserved settlements as complex and varied communities, this approach allowed for the development of grounded strategies in defence of in-situ upgrading as a just alternative to one-size-fits-all relocation.
However, as our research unfolded, a more complex picture began to emerge. Ruth McLeod Inside Mayura Place On the one hand, the experience of Mayura Place residents reinforces the value of keeping communities together during relocation from horizontal settlements to high-rise apartments, as well as relocating communities as close as possible to their original homes.
Such an approach, contrasting with larger URP projects that drew residents from across Colombo and constituted new communities through a lottery allocation process, has clearly limited the disruptive impact of relocation on the social fabric of Mayura Place and offers valuable learnings for the UDA.Project planning methodology - This is any structured plan used to guide and direct the project team during the development of the project plan.
It can include a variety of soft and hard tools such as project management software and facilitated start up meetings.

Some of the Main Problems faced in Urban Planning are as follows: The city-town planner usually considers the physical appearance of towns and cities and how to organize various elements physically.
But in reality, the basic concern of city-town planning is the internal form, structure, function and. Introduction to Healthcare Project Management.
