The Problem

Budget overruns caused by delays are a persistent problem for a Property Owner in the construction industry. Owners often feel like they aren’t getting their money’s worth, especially when delays occur or labor and material costs rise. You’ve got to get your projects completed with certainty–on time and on budget.

Construction Planning Challenges

Healthcare Owners need to heal, University Owners need to educate, and Data Center Owners need to support millions of business operations worldwide. These missions cannot be held back. As an Owner, you are facing the following problems:

Projects are Late

  • You have a master schedule, and then there’s what is actually happening on the jobsite
  • You always get bad news too late
  • It’s hard to understand where your project is vs. where you planned to be
  • Every day that your project is late is another day your building isn’t contributing to your mission and you are losing revenue

Projects are Over Budget

  • Contractor General Conditions are expensive and they are only going up, but that’s not what you care about most

The Supply Chain Bottleneck

  • It is difficult to validate delivery dates for equipment and furnishings
  • The master schedule has a procurement schedule on it, but it changes during every OAC and the reason is not always clear

Roadblock Management

  • Contractors are communicating roadblocks, but it is difficult to tell which are the highest priority


Eat Through Your Contingency Budget

  • Teams can execute as planned but when problems occur, it will come out of the contingency budget and may cause delays and more budget overruns

Site Walks in Order to Communicate

  • Visit the site yourself constantly and get updates at a granular level and taking up an entire day

Time in the Office

  • Walking back and forth to the trailer to review the plan and make adjustments

Hope and Pray

  • Hope and pray that the GC knows how to execute and manage for daily planning
