Here are some reasons why many successful builders, developers and tradespeople request our construction scheduler to create construction programs:
Many developers are now stipulating in their contract that a construction program is required to claim for “Extensions of time” (EOT’s). A program written in MS Project is required at contract commencement and must also be submitted with EOT claims.
Modifying the construction sequence will allow you find the most time effective sequence before you start on site.
This will ensure that construction is not delayed due to material deliveries or busy trades
If delay costs are stipulated in your subcontract agreements, these can only be enforced by attaching a construction program to their original order and providing updates during construction.
If you can identify the delay early, you have time to make changes to get the project back on track; before it’s too late.
You now have the ability to claim for EOT’s and prioritise projects that are in delay, hence reducing the delay and the costs associated.
During construction you can determine if you are currently behind or ahead of your construction schedule and obtain a revised handover date for your client.
We can provide training for your entire team.
Our construction team had the privilege working with Matt to deliver a difficult project on time and under budget due to his sound knowledge of the construction industry, programming and problem solving.
He created a detailed construction program and updated it weekly, providing a summary report with each update. Matt not only helped us deliver a quality project that we are all proud of, he also taught a number of our employees to write and update construction programs which will only benefit our company going forward.
We will definitely engage Matt on our next project to achieve the same outcome.
