The Zaxon Construction Project Schedule Difference

At Zaxon, Inc., we have taken the initiative to create a more accurate cost-based construction schedule. Historically, all Zaxon estimates are construction schedule compliant. This is an exceptional characteristic for cost estimating that Zaxon developed while meeting the demand of accuracy for the Savanah District Cost Engineer Group of the US Army Corp of Engineers (USACE).  

Typically, most construction schedules are produced without the benefit of a cost estimate and often require others to tediously plug in costs to activities. As a result, cost-loading is usually ignored in the typical construction project schedule. What is even worse about this process is that scheduling first and applying cost later is analogous to placing the cart before the horse, which leads to errors, poor planning and omitted activities. At Zaxon, the construction project schedule preparation begins with the cost estimate, which is broken up into scheduling activities with the respective labor and material costs. This makes it easy for the labor hours in the estimate to become the basis for activity durations in the construction project schedule.  This method is very reliable for developing a highly accurate construction schedule designed to keep projects on time and on budget. This scientific construction scheduling and estimating method is unique to Zaxon and gives us one of the best records for cost estimating accuracy in the industry. 

At Zaxon, we believe that an accurate construction project schedule is essential today for avoiding the headaches and costs of change orders, reallocation of project funds, and redesigns.
