The Company is preparing a bid to build the new 47,000-seat Shoreline baseball stadium. The construction must start on July 3, 2017, and he completed in time for the start of the 2020 season. A penalty clause of $250,000 per day of delay beyond April 3 is written into the Contract.
Percival Young, the president of the company, expressed optimism at obtaining the contract and revealed that the company could net as much as $3 million on the project. He also said if they were successful, the prospects of future projects are bright since there is a projected renaissance in building classic ball parks with modern luxury boxes.
Given the information provided in Table 6.3, construct a network schedule for the stadium project and answer the following questions:
1. Will the project be able to be completed by the April 3 deadline? How long will it take?
2. What is the critical path for the project?
3. Based on the schedule would you recommend that G&E pursue this contact? Why? Include a one-page Gantt chart for the stadium schedule.
