2.0 Gantt Chart Review
The Gantt Chart represents the anticipated 50% completion 'date' of 10/1/08. This is the date where the project 'should be' 50% complete i.e. the review and current date set to 10/1/08. From Appendix 1 - Gantt Chart, the following deduction can be made about the schedule - WBS Items 1.1 Site Layout & Site Grading, 1.2 Footings & Foundations, 1.3 Masonry, 1.4 Frames, Columns and Beams, 1.6 Slab on Grade, 1.18.1 Stacks and Vents are all 100% complete; 1.5 Joists and Roof Deck, 1.11 Elevator are both 40% complete; 1.7 Carpentry 34% complete, 1.8 Interior Studs 60% complete, 1.17 Plumbing 44% complete, 1.17.1 Hangers and Support 93% complete, 1.18 HVAC and 1.19 Electrical 39% complete; 1.18.2 Hangers and Support 23% complete; 1.21.2 Ropes Course Install & Training 20% complete. The balance of the WBS Items are yet to commence i.e. are at 0% complete. The overall project is 40% complete, which indicates that the project is behind schedule
