Construction Programs

Our scheduler can create a construction program for your next project.

Here are some reasons why tradespeople request assistance with construction programs in MS Project:

Co-ordinate your team

When you take on larger projects, or have large teams, a construction program will help you to ensure that you:

  • Provide enough manpower for each project
  • Minimise downtime in between projects
  • Co-ordinate your team between multiple levels 
  • Protect yourself against delay costs
  • Provide a construction program to your builder for your scope of works. 

Ensure you meet your milestones

Your builder may not use a construction program, or their Gantt chart may be lacking detail. 

Our detailed construction program, written in MS Project, will help you to:

  • Identify early if you will not meet your milestones
  • Create changes to increase your efficiency or manpower
  • Ensure that those changes will get the project back on track.

Review claims for delay costs

In the event that you don’t meet the milestone dates that the builder has provided you, the builder may enforce delay costs against your business. As delay costs are calculated “per day”, an in-depth knowledge of construction programming is required to ensure that you are not overcharged. 

We can help to decipher the construction program and prepare a legitimate case to minimise delay costs.

Next Level Business Consulting can create and update construction programs for you in MS Project.

Simply send us your plans and we can create a construction program for you. Our scheduler can also update the construction program during construction so that it is always accurate. 

I have had the pleasure of working with Matt in delivering projects successfully. Matt has a wealth of knowledge in building and construction and decades of proven hands on experience.
Next Level is able to develop the procedures and processes tailored to our construction business. Furthermore, Matt is highly organised in assisting the set up of our internal workflows. The end result is achieved in a much shorter time frame and without any interruptions to our day-to-day operations.
Having Matt assisting our growing business has truly brought us to the “Next Level”. We will definitely continue to engage Matt for our ongoing operations and future projects. Both my team and myself would highly recommend Matt and Next Level Business Consulting to anyone who’s seeking to further develop and enhance your business.
