These Game-Changing Scheduling Ideas and Insights Will Transform Your Construction Project

Construction professionals and attorneys need to think and act strategically to ensure that suppliers, architects and contractors remain on schedule and budget. Many claims are lost or significantly reduced because critical elements and details are often not addressed clearly – or not addressed at all. Does your project schedule identify the key components necessary for better project control, decision-making and claims resolution?

It is common knowledge that scheduling a construction project properly will save you time and money by ensuring that all activities work in accordance with contract requirements. Schedules also enable you to make informed decisions – with regard to contractor payment applications, proposed changes to the contract, and more.  The end result: your documents are properly planned, staffed, coordinated, and executed in an orderly and expeditious manner – and everyone benefits.

Yet there is a perceived risk with schedules. For example, as owner, you may accept a schedule and agree to something that is later used as the basis of a claim. However, the downside risk of not having a construction schedule is that the project plan is not communicated. As a result, you are left with no way to effectively measure progress, check on coordination, or verify the timing of responsibilities required to complete the work. 

Did you know that most standard contracts provide little direction to the contractor with respect to project scheduling requirements? Elements such as specific timing, level of detail, content and formatting, among others, are often not addressed clearly, if at all. As such, adequate project schedules will very likely not be developed – and the multiple benefits of creating them will not be achieved.  

Join scheduling expert Kevin W. Gibson, and construction claims expert James G. Zack Jr., CCM, CFCC, FAACE, FRICS, FFA, PMP in this must-attend webinar where they will demonstrate the importance of a detailed project schedule specification. They will teach you the schedule requirements typically included in standard contract, and explain the benefits of including a detailed scheduling specification. You will learn the key elements to include in your detailed scheduling specification, the common challenges and realities you will likely encounter – and the role you should be prepared to play when developing and executing project schedules.

The webinar will also walk you through some of the games people play with construction schedules – along with practical suggestions on how to prevent them.

After attending the webinar, you will be able to develop a detailed scheduling specification, and confidently manage your construction project in an orderly and expeditious manner.
