During construction, we’re working to clear a path for the builder to build. That means getting the build team information in advance of when they need it. A good construction team will develop a construction schedule and coordinate key dates and lead-times that with the team.
Work backwards to calendar design and decision due dates to be coordinated with the construction schedule.
Work ‘big to small’ – start with the large, complex problems; dig in and ask for help if needed!
Coordinate tricky areas with the team, include the owner as needed.
Assign a point contact for collecting, managing and fielding details until an issue is resolved.
Set a target date for tracking down missing information and resolving issues in a timely manner.
