[eBook] Maximize Summer Construction
The summer months are a marathon of construction, repairs and maintenance. Dealing with so many diverse, demanding projects that must be completed within budget and under a limited timeframe is a formidable juggling act. Proper planning, tools and partnerships are essential because you can’t afford to let your summer projects get behind schedule.
From larger projects such as dorm renovations, stadiums, library upgrades, etc., to smaller maintenance, repairs and replacement jobs, there’s always work on the horizon. Traditional competitive bidding for all projects is extremely time-consuming and costly. And for smaller projects, the procurement burden can be disproportionate relative to job size and scope.
The high-stakes juggling act doesn’t stop once projects are procured, either. Higher education institutions are all on the same cycle, so having access to qualified contractors who are familiar with working in a higher education environment is challenging in peak construction seasons. But the calendar doesn’t care: The work has to get done before students return to campus.
View this summer construction eBook for tips on how to tackle these challenges and effectively plan and execute your campus summer projects.
