Complete In Time
A construction project timeline is used to visualize schedules for either commercial or residential building projects.
Timelines break down the work that needs to be done over various stages of the project life cycle, and are useful to gauge progress at a glance. A timeline is often represented as a spreadsheet or table, and may incorporate a Gantt chart (a bar chart that depicts work completed over time) for even more clarity.
Because of their visual nature, construction timelines that include Gantt charts are especially useful for presentations or meetings with executives, team leaders, and other key stakeholders. They offer a clear snapshot of current versus expected work completed at important dates or milestones of the project, or at a specific phase.
Sometimes, general contractors or construction project managers will create a different construction timeline for each group of subcontractors. This allows each team to track their work in more precise detail.
