Download A Sample Microsoft Project® Construction Scheduling Template
In response to requests from professional home builders interested in purchasing a copy of the Microsoft Project® file used to create the sample custom home Construction Schedule, we are offering a free, limited field, sample version for testing and review. Click the image on the left to view screen shots of the sample file in use and follow the directions further down this page to download free sample files or to purchase the complete template.
This construction management schedule was originally created with Microsoft Project® Version 4.1a for Windows 95. It has been updated to work with all subsequent versions of Microsoft Project, up to and including Microsoft Office Project 2013. It is not a stand-alone application. It can only be opened using a project management or scheduling program that is able to read MPX or MPP files.
You may use the links on the right to check current prices for popular scheduling software or check the Microsoft Office Project Web page to see if they are still offering a free, limited trial period, demo version of Microsoft Project Professional.
The sample schedules provided below are complete through 6 top level tasks, ending with foundation waterproofing and drain tile installation. The full working template being offered for sale contains 36 top level tasks incorporating 196 individual line items, each of which is assigned a duration in days, predecessors, starting date, finish date, and resource names. It is the result of many years of actual use by a professional homebuilder who used it to manage large, luxury custom home building projects in Maryland. Among other tasks, the template will allow you to use common scheduling software to produce Gantt charts, task lists, critical path time-lines, monthly calendars, and construction progress reports.
The sample construction scheduling file is being made available to you in MPP formats, which will open with Project 2000-2003 and/or Project 2007-2013. If you purchase the template you will be sent two (2) MPP files so that you can match file formats with the scheduling software you are using. Each file contains the same basic information as available in the respective file format.
