Subdivision Build-Out Plan

This project plan, created in OnePager, uses Primavera P6 data to show the schedule for the build-out of a multi-phase residential housing development, and gives the developers an indication of when each home site will be completed. A similar timeline can also be created from Microosft Project or Smartsheet.

Subdivision Buildout Plan Features

The subdivision buildout plan features:

  • Grouping of homesites into model build-out and two construction phases.
  • Collection of key activities (contract, construction, closing) by home site.
  • Conditional formatting automatically gives each type of activity a unique emoji symbol and color.
  • Time cursor shows today's date relative to build-out progress.

This subdivision build-out plan was created using OnePager, a project reporting app that uses data imported from Oracle Primavera P6, Microsoft Project, or Smartsheet.
