Yes, planning your schedule takes time, but it’s important to do it carefully if you want to avoid problems during construction. Following all the steps and avoiding shortcuts will help you create a more accurate schedule, which will help you manage your construction project more efficiently. If you want to know more about it, we have exactly what you need. Here is a step by step guide on how to make a good construction schedule.

Collect information and tools

A construction schedule involves many types of resources, stakeholders, and participants. Start gathering all the subcontractors for the job. There are always many people involved in a construction project. Once you have the list, contact them and ask how long it will take to source the materials. Next, ask how long each person’s part of the project will take. The information is essential for establishing accurate project schedules on your end. You should also speak with the code office to get a list of requirements and when they need inspections on your building.

You have context, tools, and strategies to guide your process, and now you need to move on to the project and break it down into tasks. These are the steps that must be completed in order to turn a construction plan into a completed project. You can’t create an accurate schedule until you have a complete checklist of every task that needs to happen to end in a successful build. You can use a work breakdown structure (WBS) to master the tasks needed to complete your project. You can think of this tool as a way to visualize your goals and objectives by starting with the deliverable, then breaking it down into components, then into even smaller parts, until you get to the most basic units.

Calculate the duration

Now, for each of the tasks, give them a start date and an end date. These dates should reflect both realistic and optimistic estimates. A construction schedule is influenced by climate, which can be affected by weather conditions. Weather forecasts are only accurate for a few days at most, especially months in advance; therefore, you can rely on historical data to estimate the impact of climate on work.

Establishing realistic timelines is essential in construction. You might want a project to be finished by a certain date, but you can’t rush to get it done on time. Cutting corners and sacrificing quality will have serious repercussions. The only solution is to plan carefully, giving yourself plenty of time to complete the project. Don’t forget to consider non-construction related tasks, such as organizing and tracking the delivery of materials. They are just as important as the completion of the construction.

Allocate Tasks and Execute

Creating a project construction schedule can feel like juggling a dozen balls at once. How do you manage the interaction between activities and resources? Essentially, construction planning is about the activities and the resources needed to carry them out. No task will get done on its own, of course, but assigning work to different teams keeps you on track. By color coding tasks, you can easily differentiate between different teams and work. Once you’ve assigned people to work, the construction schedule is ready to venture into the real world. Use workload calendars to balance resource allocation. Do not over-assign a team if another is inactive.

Your construction schedule is very complex and constantly changing. If you don’t constantly monitor it and make the necessary adjustments, you will fall behind. Therefore, you should check your schedule daily and make frequent updates.

We hope you find this article useful in helping you better understand how to create a construction schedule. Although it may seem like a lot of work, construction schedules are essential to any construction or renovation project. Be sure to keep everything you’ve learned here so you can make the most informed decisions for your own releases.

Romania’s construction work volume index contracted 9.5% year-on-year in April and fell 3.4% compared to March (in seasonally adjusted terms), the report said. INS statistics office. For the first four months of the year, the index rose only 1% y/y.

The situation is not as dramatic as the April figures might suggest, but construction activity in Romania – as the January-April figures suggest – is heading for the second year of stagnation after falling slightly by 0.6% in 2021.

This is unlikely to be the case, given the ambitious plans outlined under the Recovery and Resilience Facility – but the rising cost of construction materials and the inelastic supply of workers are significant obstacles to the growth of the sector.

In April, the seasonally adjusted construction index fell for the second month in a row, reversing much of the gain accumulated over the previous four months—translating into a fairly stable activity profile that would require additional resources to the activity increase durably above the levels observed during the last two years.

The non-residential buildings sector (-2.3% y/y in April) posted a negative monthly evolution (-5.9% m/m) after an impressive 60% increase over the previous half-year, in adjusted terms. seasonal variations. Overall, it remains around the average levels seen in 2020-2021.

Civil works (-14.2%y/y in April) lost intensity for the second month in a row and remain vulnerable to tight government fiscal space.

Even the residential buildings segment contracted by 10.1% year on year in April, while remaining close to the high levels seen in the previous 12 months.

Two metro projects will alter Blue and Yellow line traffic this fall as the transit agency prepares to open a new station and repair a bridge between Pentagone and L’Enfant Plaza stations.

Work to connect the subway’s new Potomac Yard station to the system and construction work to rehabilitate a Yellow Line tunnel and bridge will begin on September 10 and then last more than eight months, requiring station closures on both lines. Metro offered alternate routes and said it would provide free shuttle service to help passengers navigate disruptions.

The Potomac Yard station, between Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Braddock Road stations, is slated to open in the fall to provide Alexandria residents with easier access to the subway. New tracks that connecting the station to the Metro’s existing rail system will require a six-week service disruption south of the airport, which will require the closure of six Blue and Yellow line stations until October 22.

After, Metro will need to perform additional testing and training on weekends and after hours.

The return of the missing subway trains arouses optimism among users

The Yellow Line Tunnel and Bridge Rehabilitation Work is a separate project that will close the Yellow Line Tunnel near L’Enfant Plaza Station and the bridge over the Potomac River until approximately May 2023. Both structures — built before Metrorail opened — are approaching their life expectancy, and Metro’s chief engineer has identified the steel-lined tunnel as the agency’s top repair priority. Metro said workers plan to reinforce the tunnel lining to prevent water intrusion, while miles of communications cables used by multiple jurisdictions will be replaced.

Metro’s acting chief executive Andrew Off said he understands the inconvenience the two projects would cause.

“Project teams understand that station closures and service changes can be very disruptive to our customers, and we are working hard to use closure time effectively,” Off said in a statement. “These projects are carefully coordinated with local jurisdictions to ensure that convenient and reliable service is available throughout the region as we complete this essential work to maintain and improve our system.”

The service changes will be done in two phases, Metro said.

During the six-week closure of the blue and yellow lines this fall south of the airport, which will last until October 22, the entire yellow line will be closed, as well as train service south of the airport. The yellow line stations north of the airport will be served by blue and green line trains. Blue Line service will be increased with trains departing every seven to nine minutes from the airport and New Carrollton stations until 9.30pm, when wait times will be around 15 minutes.

Subway’s Silver Line extension nears finish line

Metro said passengers traveling between Pentagone and L’Enfant Plaza stations should allow about 15 minutes of additional travel time. Green Line trains, meanwhile, will run every eight minutes, then every 10 minutes after 9:30 p.m.

Metro will offer seven free shuttles during this phase to replace rail service, including local and express shuttles that have fewer stops in Virginia and three shuttles that will cross the Potomac River. The shuttle schedule includes a local Blue Line bus that will run between Franconia-Springfield, Van Dorn Street, King Street-Old Town, Braddock Road and Reagan National Airport stations every 10-20 minutes.

Local yellow line shuttle service between Huntington, Eisenhower Avenue, King Street-Old Town, Braddock Road and Crystal City stations will run every 10-15 minutes. The shuttle will not stop at the airport, Metro said.

Express shuttles will be available from 4:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends. They include a Blue Line express shuttle that will run between Franconia-Springfield and Pentagon stations every six minutes, and a Yellow Line express shuttle between Huntington and Pentagon stations that will also run every six minutes.

Another set of shuttles will operate only during peak weekday hours – between Crystal City, Pentagon City, Smithsonian and L’Enfant Plaza stations every 12 minutes, Metro said. It won’t stop at the Pentagon.

A second bus will operate between Pentagon, Smithsonian and Archives stations every 12 minutes. And a third will run between Mount Vernon Square in the District, Alexandria and Potomac Park every 20 minutes.

The second phase will extend from October 23 to May 2023, and will begin with the reopening of the stations south of the airport. The yellow line, however, will remain closed with those stations served by blue or green lines, Metro said.

Blue Line trains will run every 12 minutes between Largo Town Center and Franconia-Springfield stations and every 12 minutes between Huntington and New Carrollton stations. After 9:30 p.m., trains will arrive approximately every 15 minutes.

New Metro GM sets July 25 start date

Green Line trains will run every eight minutes during the day and every 10 minutes after 9:30 p.m.

The metro goes operate three limited-stop shuttles that cross the Potomac River during peak weekday hours, the agency said. The first carries passengers between Crystal City, Pentagon City, Smithsonian and L’Enfant Plaza stations every 12 minutes. It doesn’t stop at the Pentagon.

The second serves the Pentagon, Smithsonian and Archives stations every 12 minutes. The third shuttle will run between Mt. Vernon, Alexandria and Potomac Park every 20 minutes.

Metro has suggested that passengers also consider other transportation options, such as the Metroway bus rapid transit line, the 16Y Columbia Pike-Farragut Square bus route that connects Barcroft to McPherson Square station – which will add a additional service during the project – and Virginia Railway Express. VRE service is available at Franconia-Springfield, King Street-Old Town, Crystal City and L’Enfant Plaza stations.

Kylie Lundy was a leader among her classmates as they built a house as part of the residential construction program at the Career Technical Education Center in Salem.

This article is part of a series of profiles of the class of 2022 graduates.

With a house built before graduation, Kylie Lundy had her pick of summer jobs.

The 18-year-old is a graduate of West Salem High School and the district’s Career Technical Education Center — and is following in her parents’ footsteps in the construction industry.

“As soon as I set foot there, I felt at home,” Lundy said of the program at CETC. “The environment was so welcoming and I started to aspire to enter this field.”

Lundy said she found her first two years of high school “a little boring” and was less interested in sitting in class all day, although she enjoyed some business classes that involved hands-on work like management of the student store.

She applied to the construction program and started her freshman year.

Students in the program learn everything from architecture to ordering materials, and put their skills to work building an actual home that is then sold on the open market.

The cost of the home covers materials, supervisors, land, and licensed specialty work like electrical and plumbing, which is left to contractors.

“It’s fascinating to me to see how it can grow from a piece of land to a structure that people can live in,” Lundy said.

Her teachers said Lundy quickly stood out for her professionalism – always being the one in the class who stood up and greeted visitors – and her attention to detail.

“She sort of took on the leadership role on the job site saying, ‘What do we have to do today?’ said Alyssa Stone, the building program’s teaching assistant.

This year, Lundy tutored first-year construction students, a job no one asked her to do, said Alesha Watts, the program’s English teacher.

“She really excelled in our house design competition,” Watts said, referring to the annual project where students design a house to be built the following year.

Although her design was not selected, Lundy said working on a real house was a high school highlight for her.

“To see a house that I had worked on a bit last year and earlier this year, to move in and see a family living in the house was super cool,” she said.

The district’s construction program tends to be male-dominated, with approximately 30% female students. Some of them first applied to CETC hoping to attend another of their practical programs and were instead assigned to construction when others filled up.

Stone said that means there are often girls in the program who don’t necessarily want to enter the construction industry after graduating. But Lundy’s influence and enthusiasm spread among her classmates.

“I think all but one or two of this year’s band are going to be building, which is crazy,” Stone said. “One was going to be a veterinarian. Now she’s going to be a plumber.

Stone said Lundy also made trips across town from his west Salem home to socialize with friends as part of the construction program, despite driving a truck with terrible gas mileage. . She joined the National Association of Women in Construction and made gift bags with roses for other girls in the program.

Lundy works for Smallwood Builders, a general contracting company, out of Alsea this summer, then begins a construction engineering management program at Oregon State University in the fall.

She hopes to one day own her own general contracting business.

Lundy said that looking back on high school, she’s most proud of “being a leader and blazing my own trail.”

“I think a lot of people, especially in high school, like to fit in with the band…and I felt like I never did,” she said.

MANILA, Philippines – The Archdiocese of Manila has begun construction of Asia’s first-ever exorcism center to cater to what it says are a growing number of possessions in the Philippines and to train aspiring exorcists in the region.

Construction work on the St. Michael’s Center for Spiritual Liberation and Exorcism began June 6 in the capital’s Makati business district, ucanews.com reported.


“This religious structure will be the first of its kind in Asia, if not the world. The center will house the Archdiocese of Manila’s Commission on Extraordinary Phenomena, the Exorcism Ministry Office, the Visions and Phenomena Ministry Office, and serve as the headquarters of the Philippine Association of Catholic Exorcists (PACE) the archdiocese said in a statement. Facebook post.

PACE is a group of Catholic exorcist priests that falls under the Philippine Catholic Bishops’ Conference and is affiliated with the Rome-based International Association of Exorcists.

Father José Francisco Syquia, chief exorcist of the archdiocese, leads the project.

“This center will take care of those who are slaves of the devil, who are therefore the poorest of the poor and are generally neglected,” he said.

Syquia said an increasing number of cases of demonic possession led the archdiocese to undertake the project.

“We’ve had a big increase in cases over the past three to five years,” Syquia wrote in a 2021 post without giving an estimated figure.

The center will include a chapel dedicated to Mary, named Our Lady of the Angels.

Cardinal Jose Advincula of Manila and Father Syquia led the center’s inauguration ceremony in May.

Church officials said they hope the center will attract priests from across Asia to study and train in the profession of exorcism.

From staff reports

Earlier this year, Jenks’ city manager expressed little concern about halting construction on a proposed mall.

“They obviously own the property, because they’ve started construction, so we’re optimistic here that it will start at some point,” Jenks Town Manager Christopher Shrout said in February. “I think it’s a question of ‘when’ and not ‘if’.”

Simon Premium Outlets announced on Wednesday that the “when” will be sometime later this year.

Construction on the site of Tulsa Premium Outlets, a proposed mall just south of the Creek Turnpike in Jenks, is scheduled to resume in 2022 after being essentially halted since March 2020 during the pandemic.

“This rapidly growing and prosperous market is well positioned for Simon’s vision of value-driven shopping and will serve as a regional draw,” Simon Premium Outlets said in a press release.

The center will be approximately 330,000 square feet and will have nearly 100 retailers, with a grand opening scheduled for 2024, the statement said.

Tulsa Premium Outlets LLC purchased 51 acres for the Jenks Project for $12 million.

In the original Economic Development Tax Increase Funding Agreement #2, the City of Jenks agreed to reimburse Simon for certain TIF public improvement projects.

A TIF is a method of public funding that diverts property tax revenue from the TIF district to pay for public improvements there over a specified period. Jenks TIF #2 is generally bounded by the Creek Turnpike to the north, the Arkansas River to the east, Polecat Creek to the south, and Elm Street to the west.

When Tulsa Premium Outlets was announced, it was expected to generate 400 construction jobs and 800 part-time and permanent jobs.

GRAND ISLAND — Nebraska State Patrol Troopers are emphasizing work areas to keep construction crews and motorists safe during the summer months.

“Crews working on highway projects during the summer months deserve job safety,” said Nebraska State Patrol Superintendent Col. John Bolduc. “As they work to improve our roads, soldiers will patrol to keep crews and motorists safe, watching for unsafe driving in and around construction zones.”

In Troop C, based on Grand Island, soldiers will perform localized efforts thanks in part to a $41,300 grant from the Nebraska Department of Transportation’s Office of Traffic Safety.

The C Troop effort runs through September 30.

“When driving in or near a construction zone, it’s imperative to focus on the road,” said Capt. Jeff Roby, C Troop Commander. “Whether to put the phone down could be a decision vital for one of the many professionals working on these construction projects.

Here are some safe work area driving tips from the Nebraska Department of Transportation:

– Stay alert: Give your full attention to the road.

– Be very careful: Work zone signs and flaggers save lives.

– Turn on your headlights: Workers and other motorists must see you.

– Do not exceed the speed: note the posted speed limits in and around the work area.

– Track traffic flow.

– Do not change lanes in the work zone.

– Minimize distractions: Avoid changing radio stations or using your phone.

– Expect the unexpected: Keep an eye on workers and their equipment.
