Construction Timeline Template
Setting a timeline and being flexible when plans shift is the cornerstone of construction project management. Sometimes things don’t go according to plan, such as a permit not being finalized on time. One way to stay on top of your timeline is to utilize multiple types of visualization, such as the Gantt chart right alongside the sheet view in this template.
In Smartsheet, you can even outline the critical path to clarify expectations around hard deadlines. A detailed timeline also serves as a means of accountability for everyone who uses it.
A single, transparent version of the truth keeps stakeholders honest, maximizes collaboration, and provides progress visibility to owners, who might not always be as savvy when it comes to the ins-and-outs of construction.
Construction Estimator Template
With the Smartsheet Construction Estimator Template, you can gather all of the essential information you need to stay in the know about estimates, from permits to interior finishing work costs. It enables you to store contact information, invoice numbers and customer IDs, and as much or as little detailed description of the estimate as you need.
In addition, contractors can upload important documents — permits, regulations, deliverables, and contracts — directly to sheet rows in order to make sure everything’s stored in a single location. You can access everything you need, even while you’re onsite, via the Smartsheet mobile app.
Construction Punch List Template
Punch lists help you ensure all aspects of a contract are met before starting project wrap-up. Using the traditional combination of email and spreadsheets can mean that key information is scattered and not shared between the right people.
With this template, you can easily share row or sheet information with collaborators, even if the other party does not have a Smartsheet account. This comes in handy for coordinating with contractors. So if an electrical contractor is behind on installing light fittings, they can flag the action item as at risk and you can adjust accordingly.
Project Closeout Checklist Template
Once the construction project is nearly finished, the PM needs to tie up loose ends and ensure that all expectations have been met. For this phase, you need a reliable checklist template that tracks:
Warranties and guarantees
You can set up automated alerts so that when a stakeholder or contractor completes a task you receive an approval request. If an onsite inspection is needed, you can easily access the checklist template through the Smartsheet mobile app while completing inspections.
