McAlvain’s unique team approach to scheduling, results in projects being delivered within the earliest possible time frames.  Developed in Primavera Contractor scheduling software, our project master schedule serves as the primary method of coordinating and communicating the means and methods, sequencing and timing of our project plan and progress of our work to our Clients.  Schedule development by our key field supervision in tandem with our project management teams ensures that all key team members are invested and accountable to the project timeline, sequence, productivity and milestones.   Key activities that are routinely incorporated into our baseline master schedules include, but aren’t necessarily limited to:

  • Design milestone dates
  • Critical bid and award dates
  • Permit and Key Jurisdictional Permits
  • Long lead material
  • Equipment milestone dates
  • Contract milestone dates
  • Construction milestone dates
  • Owner occupancy dates
  • Substantial completion dates
  • And all other dates required to meet project goals

McAlvain takes great pride in our ability to complete all of our projects within extremely aggressive timelines based on our pre-planning efforts and execution of our unique pre-construction procedures.  These efforts, along with the experience and capabilities of our project management and superintendent teams, enables us to predict and plan for successful project outcomes.  Working with you, we will develop numerous alternative approaches for sequencing the design, permitting, procurement, submittals, and construction of the project, start-up and commissioning tasks as well as facilitating Owner Move-In and installation of Owner Furnished Equipment.   Together, we will determine the best approach and most cost effective and efficient means of building your project.
