What is Mobilization?
Mobilization in the construction industry refers to the activities and processes that are carried out to prepare for a construction project before the actual work begins. This can involve acquiring, assembling, and organizing resources, including manpower, tools, equipment, and materials needed for the project. Moreover, it encompasses planning, site preparation, setting up temporary facilities like offices or storage spaces, and obtaining necessary permits and insurances. Mobilization is crucial as it ensures smooth execution and helps to avoid potential delays. This phase often involves significant costs, which are usually included in the contract as 'Mobilization Costs'.
