A *REAL* Construction Schedule

by J Scott on June 13, 2014

I worked for Microsoft for a long time, so you’d think that I was pretty proficient in Microsoft Project and could create a decent construction schedule that mapped timelines, dependencies, critical paths, etc. Instead, I typically just do line items in Excel and use color coding to track things using my own personal system.

When one of my readers — who does construction scheduling for a living — realized how archaic I was being, he took the schedule I posted and created a *real* construction schedule using Primavera P6 (which apparently what real construction firms use :)). He was not only nice enough to send me a copy of the schedule, but he’s offered to update it weekly based on my progress.

A very special thanks to Luis B. Becerra from Houston, TX for putting this together and for his offer to keep it updated for us! Here is the current schedule in formal scheduling format:

Initial Schedule

I’m going to post this over on the Schedule page, and will update as Luis provides updates! Thanks again, Luis!
