Avoid becoming part of the 80% of complex construction projects that incur cost overruns or delays.

Proactive offers a full range of schedule controls services – from traditional CPM scheduling to Lean project planning – along with an arsenal of other project controls tools that reduce risk for project stakeholders.
FEATURED CASE STUDY
Groundbreaking to Project Completion: 26 stories in 21 months.
Proactive’s client was tasked with meeting an aggressive 21-month schedule, for a 340 unit luxury
apartment tower in the midst of Atlanta's Buckhead skyline.
The contractor collaborated with Proactive on early schedule review, revealing early issues that
could significantly impact an already condensed construction program. Proactive provided a detailed analysis of the project’s foundation and structure schedule; as well as a 4D model of the building’s skin. These tools were used to assess the impacts of subcontractor and vendor delays.
With the help of Proactive’s 4D scheduling tools, Proactive's client was able to identify, re-sequence, and mitigate 6-8 weeks of curtain wall/EIFS installation delays.
"Proactive’s analysis provided us a succinct look at the greatest areas of impact, allowing us to re- sequence to meet the tight schedule’s demands," said Proactive's client's Sr. Project Manager.
WHAT'S NEW AT PROACTIVE
Proactive’s recent schedule controls endeavor involved a highly complex federal agency project.
Complicating the construction sequence, portions of the facility under construction had to remain
open at all times.
By utilizing cutting edge controls tools, Proactive organized all the requirements, managed project
section closures/openings, and kept an aggressive schedule on time; protecting the client from
experiencing costly damages.
