A large pharmaceutical company needed a master planner/scheduler to oversee a $40 million building renovation. However, this wasn’t just any commercial construction project. In addition to working with a substantial capital budget, the job would require a total gut while installing all-new process automation equipment in a clean environment (void of any pollution or its effects).
FootBridge hired contractor Tim W. to oversee a three-year project management/scheduling contract. Additional responsibilities included:
- Sole responsibility for all Engineering, Procurement, Construction, C&Q, Automation, and Operations scheduling
Delays often plague commercial construction projects due to weather, labor shortages, and slow adoption of new technology. The global COVID-19 pandemic has also caused innumerable supply chain disruptions with long-lasting effects, so scheduling has become even more critical than ever. To further complicate matters, this client had gone through four schedulers before working with Tim W., none of whom could keep the project on schedule.

FootBridge was able to locate and qualify the ideal candidate, Tim W., to assist our client in a short turnaround window.
