Abstract

The construction of small houses was started many years before Christ, and the development of this field has led many architects and engineers to a higher level of buildings. Mainly the buildings in terms of height are classified into three types: low-, medium- and high-rise buildings. In this particular study, medium or med-rise buildings are investigated. Reaching the fully finished building stage is not easy, and it requires many steps. Taking into account the step-by-step tasks for proper performance completion, economical point of view, performance period estimation and other considerations, it is essential to organise (plan) the work before it starts accurately; that is why a work breakdown structure (WBS) template is vital in the planning, design and construction of buildings. In this paper, an overview and a WBS template for construction planning of the med-rise buildings are submitted. It was seen that for the successful construction of a mid-rise building, 14 steps are required prior completion, and among all steps, construction step takes more time for completion.
