CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULES FOR BETTER CASH FLOW|
PRESENTED BY BRIAN SMITH (CO-AUTHORED BY PETE BASSFORD)
The State of Washington bonds millions of dollars per quarter to fund the Department of Transportation's capital projects. Accuracy in forecasting the amount and timing of bonds to be sold is crucial in order to avoid incurring additional interest costs, or worse, underfunding projects that may result in delay or cancellation of projects. On the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Project in Seattle, one of the largest design-bid-build projects undertaken by WSDOT, the mission is to replace an earthquake damaged section of an elevated freeway with a new approach and interchange.
Brian will demonstrate the methodology for how a Contractor's construction schedule for this freeway replacement was cost loaded using a summarization of bid-items (Schedule of Values). This methodology allowed for the development of an accurate cash flow that adjusted dynamically from month to month with the progress of the construction work as well as the effect of schedule changes that were costed through time-impact analyses. Both work progress and changes to the schedule affected Estimates-at-Completion forecasts and subsequent cash flow forecasts.
