How Gardner Builders is using scheduling to drive customer confidence

Live Webinar
April 8, 2021
2:00 p.m. ET/ 11:00 a.m. PT
On a construction project, the schedule can include numerous activities each week. As complexity increases, so does the need to ensure the field has the most up-to-date, accurate information, to improve visibility and avoid costly errors and rework.

During this webinar, Gardner Builders, a commercial contractor, will discuss their experience moving from a legacy scheduling tool to Oracle Primavera Cloud, an easy-to-use construction scheduling solution with integrated CPM and Lean task functionality.

We’ll learn how they have transformed their project delivery process by:
  • Establishing a new scheduling culture within the organization to save valuable time and money
  • Empowering their superintendents to run their own schedules and look-aheads

  • Standardizing processes, including templates and layouts across projects

  • Moving entirely to the cloud, enabling cross-team access from any location

Curtis Martinson

Project Manager, Gardner Builders
Curtis spent his teenage years working summers side-by-side with his father, a residential contractor. He shared his skills as a carpenter and knowledge of the trades with him. He went on to receive an associate degree in CAD drafting and design and worked as a CAD manager for an architecture firm, working closely with architects and designers. This experience taught him the value of crafting successful working relationships with contractors, and became well versed in managing RFIs, submittals, and value engineering.

Since focusing on commercial construction, Curtis has worked primarily in the central business district serving high-expectation clients and Class A building needs requiring aggressive schedules and budgets…a challenge he loves.

Every project Curtis runs is approached as a team effort. Pre-planning his jobs gives his team an edge and allows all trades to run efficiently. He utilizes communication tools to keep everyone up to date and give a first-hand look into the job’s day-to-day activities. Sharing milestones with everyone on the team makes his job rewarding and exciting.
