A construction schedule is a timeline of each step of a construction project listed in the order they need to be completed before the next step is taken.
Working from a good construction scheduling template or construction scheduling software will help shape a construction project in terms of the time involved, skill and trades needed, overall scope, and project budget. A completed construction schedule will help general contractors estimate the length of time it will take to complete the project and provide the client a solid blueprint for what to expect along the way.
A good construction schedule will help alleviate stress and ensure projects run smoothly.
Whether you're using construction scheduling software or a construction schedule template in Excel, the most important part is that it needs to be easy to understand and contain all of the information needed to keep everyone informed and on track.
Using a Gantt chart for construction project scheduling makes it incredibly easy to quickly see a timeline with progression and overlapping steps that may or may not be dependent on each other.
