How does it work?
When you hire one of our construction cost estimate services, we take your project and divide it into the most minor elements, from a room or pathway demolition to even the fee for water and electricity services disconnection. Having every aspect on its own allows us to get the most accurate cost estimation. The cost for each element is calculated based on our experience, up-to-date information, and the latest market prices. We have the right contacts and tools to perform this task.
After each element is identified, and thanks to our experience, we can assign resources to each task, whether time, money, materials, or workforce. We add these data and resources to a Gantt chart timeline, and we can have a good overview of the project realization.
The process doesn't end here. After we have our preliminary Gantt chart, our team reviews it to identify:
It is the combination of our experience, skills, and top of the line project management software that allows us to give you a detailed and reliable project schedule.
How does a Gantt chart look?
A Gantt chart is a visual depiction of a project schedule. Using bars, the Gantt chart shows start and finish dates for every element within a project. It also includes resources, dependencies, tasks, milestones, and clearly shows the critical path for a project.
Take a look at a Sample Project from us.
As you can see, every task of the project is identified and grouped together to the corresponding stages of the project. For example, in this project sample, you can see the following phases:
Even though these stages are commonly known for construction teams, it is only by putting them down on a Gantt chart when you can find out key aspects of your project. For instance, maybe you can use your resources more effectively and shorten the time needed for the project, or you might realize that you need to get special materials earlier than expected to avoid delays in the whole project.
What if you don't understand Gantt charts?
Do not worry; our expert team will be happy to walk you through the chart and explain whatever is new to you. We care about the success of your project, and we want you to be satisfied with our assistance, so we will do our best for you to take full benefit of the professional tools we are giving you.
Can you modify the Gantt chart?
Yes! Our Gantt charts are compatible with Microsoft Project, and therefore you can easily use them throughout your project to follow up on the schedule. We will give you the chart as a png image, pdf file, and Microsoft Project link. It is all yours! Use it through your project and update start and finish dates based on the progress of your project. If you continue to update your Gantt chart, the more likely that your project will be completed on time. You can also use it to provide professional reports to your clients to keep them satisfied with your work.
The project schedule is entirely yours so that you can use it to follow up and manage your project successfully
Why is it essential to have a professional project schedule?
Project schedules are vital for the success of a project. Through the years, our team has seen that the key to making a project successful is accurate estimates and planning. Without these two fundamental elements of project management, your project will present delays, shortages of budget, and loss of profits. How does a project schedule avoid this?
The critical path. Every project has a critical path among all the tasks to be done. The critical path is the sequence made up of dependent tasks. This sequence forms the longest duration of the project, and it allows you to determine the quickest route to complete your project. It is not easy to find the critical path of a project without splitting it apart in every single task. The Gantt chart is the easiest way to visualize the project tasks grouped by stages. Our team will make sure that no step is missed, just like we make sure that no cost is omitted from our estimates, and then we will clearly show you the critical part of the project
Resource Allocation. You may thoroughly understand the people that you need for your project and what tasks they will perform. However, it is only when you put it together on a project schedule that you will see if your resources, especially workers, are over assigned at specific parts of the projects. If you fail to notice this ahead of time, then your project will be delayed, and you won't meet your deadlines. Again, the Gantt chart allows you to spot these areas, and you will be able to adjust the scheduling to fit all the pieces easily.
Did you know?
Architects, local governments, and even bank loans often require a Gantt chart or construction management schedules. Banks occasionally require this to make sure that the owner-builders have a realistic time frame for the construction. For high-end architectural homes, this is particularly important, especially when some of the products in the project have long lead times. A builder who fails to order special items with long lead times can't claim for a delay if the product doesn't turn up on time.
For what kind of projects do we create project schedules?
There is no limit to what we can take. We have done schedules for builders from $300k to $20 mill. No matter how small or big your project is, we are more than ready to share our expertise with you. Most importantly, we personally care about your project. No matter the budget, we want your project to succeed.
