Construction Scheduling

There are several services that fall under the umbrella of pre-construction, some of which include construction planning, cost estimating and budgeting, and construction scheduling.  At Gidel & Kocal Construction Company, Inc., we see to it that every project is completed with accuracy and precision from the very beginning. Construction scheduling helps keep all parties in check throughout the entirety of the project so everyone’s expectations can be met every step of the way.

What is Construction Scheduling?

Staying on schedule in any construction project is critical to the overall success of a build. Construction scheduling can be broad as well as specific. It may include an overall project deadline as well as checkpoints and milestones along the way. All of these factors may contribute to whether or not a project will be completed on time.

Construction scheduling goes in line with conceptual scheduling, which is a key service we offer here at Gidel & Kocal Construction Company. Conceptual scheduling involves developing a more generalized outline of what clients and subcontractors can expect when it comes to completion dates and projected deadlines. This general schedule has approximate start and end dates for every project phase with the understanding that changes may need to be made as the project progresses. Key to Gidel & Kocal’s success is the transparent nature by which we work. Should modifications to the construction scheduling need to be made, we are always quick to communicate them to clients and receive their approval before proceeding.

Understanding the Importance of Construction Scheduling

Construction Scheduling

Adhering to an agreed-upon construction schedule helps everyone stay on track to facilitate a more efficient workflow. Abiding by a schedule may reduce costs or prevent unexpected costs from arising down the line. Companies that know how to properly implement construction scheduling typically see better efficiency, less waste, and higher client satisfaction.

A reliable schedule can provide all parties the opportunity to see which of the construction activities need more time when compared to others. Allocating time properly will lead to avoiding cost overruns and construction delays as well.
