The intermingling of project planning and scheduling are critical to a project’s success in terms of time, money, quality and safety. In this session an interactive approach to project planning and scheduling for the subcontractor will be highlighted. Early and continued interaction between the general contractor and the subcontractor is crucial. Proactive approaches for the planning and scheduling processes will be addressed, to include preconstruction meeting involvement, crew size identification, and conflict management techniques. Scheduling techniques will also be addressed to include short-term schedules, look ahead schedules, and float management.
