A carefully prepared construction project is an important tool for ensuring its successful and timely completion. The guys over at Southwest Appliance Repair always say that using a construction project enables the contractor to use the available resources effectively. Unfortunately, some contractors have poorly made construction schedules.
To be effective, a construction schedule should have all pertinent information. It should also ensure that this information is communicated to all stakeholders. Here is what your construction schedule should do:
Enhance timely completion of the construction project
A construction schedule should enable the contractor and workers to use the available resources efficiently to complete the project in a timely manner. With a construction schedule, the project can be completed without ruining quality, or compromising integrity or safety.
Consider Restraints Imposed by the Client
A properly made construction schedule should consider restraints that some clients impose. These include interfacing with the other contractors, dates of accessing the work areas, working around and in the existing facilities as well as the information available.
Take into Account Adverse Weather Conditions
A well prepared construction schedule should allow room for adverse weather conditions that can be experienced during a construction project. Unfavorable weather can reduce productivity or hinder timely completion of a construction project.
Set the Completion Date
The purpose of a construction schedule is to ensure that a construction project is completed within the set timeframe. Therefore, an effective schedule ensures that completion dates are met as the contractor committed to while signing the contract. The only exceptionis when changes are made during the project.
Have Approval of the Client
A construction project schedule should be presented to the client in writing. Once the client receives it, they should read through and approve or request changes. Without a schedule approved by the client, it’s difficult for a contractor to argue that delays were occasioned by late information, variations, time extension, or late access.
A construction project schedule is an important document. It influences timely and successful completion of a construction project.
