5 Tips on How to Keep Your Construction Project on Schedule

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and we are assuming your construction project most likely won’t finish in 24 hours, either. When planning a big project, there are many things to keep in mind that could slow down your progress and ultimately cost you money.

G3 Quality has gathered some tips on how you can better plan your projects to keep within your scheduled timeline. They may seem simple, but they are easy to forget as the work starts to pile up. :

Make a Master Schedule

In order to stay within your timeline, you need to make one! Your master schedule should be broken down from project to phases, tasks, and activities. This should be done far before you first break ground. At this point in the project, you should have answers to any questions regarding scheduling, equipment, materials, and labor.

Take Ownership

Everyone should be held accountable for their tasks and made clearly aware of their personal responsibilities. Be sure to have all of this information under contract to avoid any disputes that could occur from a scheduling mishap. At G3Quality, ownership means acknowledging your responsibilities and completing them with pride in the project.

Communicate With Your Team

Just like any team or work environment, successful projects value communication between coworkers. If there is a problem, it will most likely be resolved quicker if your workforce is comfortable voicing questions or concerns with superiors and other coworkers. This can include issues with last-minute design changes, weather conditions, unexpected site conditions, or a mistake that has been made. The faster the issue is addressed, the more timely the overall project will remain.

Keep Track of Progress

Monitoring daily progress will help keep things from falling behind schedule. They can be evaluated for what’s working and what’s not to help with the current task and any future tasks that this problem may also affect.

Be Mindful of The Weather

Your number one concern should be your workers’ safety. Closely monitoring any dangerous weather conditions will help you plan accordingly. You should always prepare for the worst, for unforeseen weather conditions can be time-consuming, costly, and hazardous.

These are just a few of the many ways that you can keep your construction project on schedule. We take pride in completing our work in an organized and timely manner.
