Construction SchedulingThe information developed in the estimate also becomes the basis for a detailed construction schedule.
The information developed in the estimate also becomes the basis for a detailed construction schedule. The material lists and quantities taken off of the drawings are used to calculate the time required to purchase and install those items. Once that list is complete, all of the procurement and construction activities are linked together in a logical sequence. This sequence of construction activities becomes the project schedule.
The completed schedule becomes a planning tool for the rest of the project. By updating the progress of each activity, construction delays can be foreseen and course corrections made.
