The Government of Uganda, through the Ministry of Water and Environment (MoWE) using funding from the Donor Community, formulated a program, Government of Uganda UNICEF Country Program, to improve safe water infrastructure facilities in schools, Health centers and Communities in Twenty –nine (29) Districts of Adjumani, Arua, Moyo, Yumbe, Mbale, Koboko,Tororo, Maracha, Moroto, Kamwenge, Kiryandongo, Kyegegwa, Isingiro, Rakai,Luwero, Hoima, Lamwo, Kotido,Kaabong, Napak, Abim,Amudat, Nakapiripirit, Kyenjojo, Kampala, Kamuli, Ntungamo, Mayuge and Mbarara . The program is intended to be implemented over a period of 5 years with a projected budget of USD 150million. This report is as a result of the project supervision of the Construction of a Motorized water project in Adjumani District implemented under the Government of Uganda UNICEF Country Program 2019-2021 program The aim of this field attachment was to develop the student’s skills to develop study issues in management of construction projects, collect data from various sources, analyze the data and present findings in a logical way. This report gives a detail account of what transpired during the project right from inception to commissioning including design, Environmental Impacts Assessment, Occupational Health and safety, activities executed and Project management. Any significant construction project will involve various stakeholders who arrive on the project at different stages as parties to the construction process. It’s therefore very important to involve the different stakeholders from the initial stages of the project with a collective aim of delivering the project to meet the client's requirement of delivery on time, to the required quality and at a defined budget. Considering the magnitude of the project and internal technical failures of the client’s payment system, this time loss was quite reasonable. Overall, the project was completed outside the prescribed cost range and time. The author learnt that project control was very essential in mitigating many of the management challenges that could arise during construction project execution process.
