From what we can determine so far the main issues revolving around your construction project are unionized workers starting strikes and weather concerns during December. We are also informed that the company will suffer from a $500 per week penalty fee on overhead expenses if the construction project is not finished on time. It is also stated in the contract that a penalty clause of $15,000 per week of delay beyond February 15 of the following year will be implemented.
Based on statistical data and thorough research, we have determined that the best possible route in predicament is too expedite the pouring of seat gallery supports. This would cost $20,000 and cut the duration of this specific activity from 14 weeks to 6 weeks. Despite being the most costly choice, it presents itself to be the safest route this company should take.
The reasons that we propose this are because that this is the method that will save the company the most time. Not only does it save the company time, but if the company were to ever fall into trouble with labor union strikes, this plan is guaranteed to be the most cost effective when facing with the steep penalties of not meeting the time limit. In addition if everything goes very smoothly the company will finish the project 8 weeks earlier than expected and save money on overhead expenses.
