The modern under ground constructor faces economic and competitive conditions which demand exacting planning, logistics and scheduling; the most efficient operation methods and equipment known; and realistic, comprehensive; analytical risk evaluation with adequate contingencies or other protection. Planning can usually be separated into two phases: preconstruction and during construction. Preconstruction work includes a thorough review and familiarization with engineering and contract documents, site investigations, evaluating such local conditions as weather and labor supply, selection of construction methods and equipment, and preparation of detailed cost estimates. During construction, planning encompasses preparation of detailed work schedules, cost controls, and contingency plans.
