The Need For Effective Construction Scheduling

May 15, 2021

You can use Microsoft Project to schedule and control your construction projects at any level required! It is a shell scheduling software that has the unlimited potential power to control your projects. How much of this capability are you using?
Construction Scheduling creates the time to do the things you need to run and control your business. Scheduling is the essential part of organizing and maintaining control in a project.

Most people do not plan and realize the power of scheduling and consequently deal with delays, increased costs, stress, etc. Construction Scheduling forces you to look ahead, plan and communicate with other team members.

Without effective scheduling, you will be reacting instead of acting.

Your construction schedule is the most powerful tool you can use to control time, communicate your expectations and keep everyone accountable. We have customized Microsoft Project so that you can quickly and effectively schedule any or all of your projects with simple tools and methods.

We can help you effectively complete the circuit of cost and quality to unleash the potential profits on your projects that are unavailable without it.

Everything we do relates to time; if you are not controlling it – it controls you!

Ask yourself a few questions?

  • Are your projects completed on time?
  • Do you use scheduling as a tool rather than as an exercise?
  • Do you know your future workload, and can you adjust your profit margins accordingly?
  • Are people or even you following your schedules – are they accountable?
  • Do you have the flexibility to make timely decisions and adjust accordingly?
  • Do you know when you need to order materials or have materials delivered?
  • Do you have standard templates to create your schedules and save input time?
  • Do you know what’s going on in your projects at any time? Or a group of projects – either now or in the future?
