Engineers And Architects Working With Construction Management and Developing Innovate Solutions for Construction

 

If you are an architect or an engineer in the role of construction management, and responsible for the time schedule, Location-based scheduling gives you a much better overview of progress and issues than the traditional Gantt chart. The method is visual, and the consequences of a delay, and a solution of how to mitigate them, is very easy to identify. A complex time schedule will fit on a single page only.

If you are the one responsible for scheduling on site, you will be able to provide both the contractors, and your client – with a simple and optimized time schedule, including the best possible flow between disciplines and tasks, and a minimum number of risks. Any planning flaws/errors will appear visually and will be easy to identify and eliminate.

This method is proven to reduce conflicts and promotes a good and healthy work environment on-site. If the contractors have a request or a claim, it is very easy to visualize and communicate the consequences of a subcontractor’s delay etc. When coordinating on site, most construction managers have heard from a delayed contractor: “Yes, we are delayed, but we will make it, don’t worry”. With this method it is easy to check whether this is a realistic statement or not.

The method will show you historic data – e.g. progression rate of this particular contractor. Is a higher progression rate with the same number of workers realistic? Furthermore, you can, in real time at the coordination meeting, make a projection of the time schedule. You will be able to visualize the effects of this delay, which will act as a visualization of the consequence for the subsequent activities.
