Production Building Based Scheduling Techniques

‘stack’ our subs when possible and when it will not sacrifice quality. Several ‘behind the wall’ and ‘rough trades’ can work in the house at the same time together including while the roof is going on and windows are going in. We use Microsoft Project ‘Gantt Chart Schedules’ which allows us to always know the fastest ways to finish our projects with its ‘Critical Path’ feature.

These large-scale companies also work off tighter profit margins which creates savings for the project.
