Key Factors That Can Influence Your Project’s Timeline

We’ve worked with hundreds of clients over the past 20 years, and, regardless of the project, one of the biggest concerns most project owners have is how long the job will take (and how much it will cost). Project timelines are important, we know that, which is why advocate so strongly for pre-construction as a way to ensure timely completion on the job right from the get-go.

With accurate and detailed planning prior to a project’s kick-off, your experienced general contracting team will be able to anticipate any potential hurdles that could slow you down if they aren’t planned for. Here are a few timeline-related factors your GC team will alert you to during pre-construction.


Early in the project-planning phase, you’ll be working to secure financing for your commercial construction project, which requires its own long process of signing forms, obtaining information, and securing approval.


Depending on where you’ll be building, the permitting requirements can vary significantly, and if don’t plan for it or have an experienced general contractor who knows the local regulations or processes, this step of securing permits can drag on for months and cost you time, money, and major headaches.


As we enter hurricane season, we need to be realistic about the possibility of weather or other conditions outside our control that could impact a project’s timeline. We take job site safety seriously and have extensive preparation plan documents in place for projects in hurricane-prone areas. And with any weather event, this includes action steps we take to get the project back on track as quickly and safely as possible after the storm passes.


As much as we hate to say it, you may encounter overpromises in the building process if you’re not careful about who you hire. Chances are good that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is, and those overpromises can end up wreaking havoc on your project’s timeline.

The best way to overcome any delay in a project’s timeline is to plan ahead and hire for success. That’s why at Seacoast Construction we work diligently with you to ensure that any and all potential delay factors are taken into consideration during pre-construction.
