Lookahead module

Break down your master schedule

Now your Lookahead is connected to your master schedule but lives in a separate place. We have built a powerful construction planning tool that can take your current schedule detail and apply it at the right time in the right place so that project teams can be more effective builders.

Team collaboration & accountability

Give multiple users access to the planning process without affecting your master schedule.

Easily drag and drop tasks

Once you start adding detailed tasks, it's very easy for you to drag and drop those tasks to build the right sequences with your trade partners.

Daily progress updates

Tasks at the lookahead level will automatically roll up to the activities of your master schedule as you update them.

Stop needless update meetings, avoid double data entry for your team and have your schedule updated at all times.

Lookaheads on your terms

Our construction planning software allows you to seamlessly push activities from the master schedule to your Lookahead giving you the ability to decide how far ahead you want to look, and what team members you want to involve along the way.

Customizable construction planning software

Same as the schedule module, construction planning is done on your terms. Customize your column views by crew size, companies, tags, assignees, constraints, and more. You can also color-code activity tags or companies for easy visuals to use during your pull planning sessions.

Constraints automatically integrated with Procore

Easily create constraints that will be shown on your lookahead for everyone in your team to see.

All the constraints are listed in a clean log which gives visibility on what is holding up work or has the potential to hold up work in upcoming tasks.

Every time a team member creates an RFI in Procore, it is automatically tracked in Outbuild and can be used as a constraint for one or more tasks.

Schedule updates and unexpected changes solved with Outbuild's Modification Request feature

Schedule updates and unexpected changes

The Modification Request feature allows superintendents and the field teams to communicate from the Lookahead level all the way up to the Master Schedule level.

This will allow for seamless communication regarding possible delays between the field and the executive team, creating a collaborative environment with real time feedback on your schedule.

testimonials

What our customers are saying.

From billion-dollar companies to smaller family-owned businesses. They all believe that construction deserves a better scheduling and planning tool.

“If they can take a marker and make marks on a whiteboard, they can use this platform.”

Craig Loschen
VP - Project Management, Wells & Wells Construction Co.

“The ability to couple roadblocks with our use of Procore, tie submittals, tie RFIs to tasks within the schedule that are linked together, so in that way we can truly run our project through the schedule itself. It’s different than we’ve done in the past and I think is the right approach.”

Dylan Keller
Director of Operations, Warfel

“One of the first things that sold me on transitioning over to Outbuild was that I don’t have to do Excel Lookaheads anymore, because that’s been the bane of my existence as a Superintendent for 10 years.”

Wyatt Breum
Lead Superintendent, Catamount

“In my 30 years in the construction industry, this is the most intuitive scheduling platform that we have ever used at our company.”

Jason Larkins
VP of construction, Orion

“Great tool to be able to keep our project schedule and lookaheads in the same platform instead of using 2-3 different solutions.”

Joanne Kullbacki
Sr project manager, Granger

“Outbuild isn’t just a scheduling software, it’s a support team. We thought implementation would be challenging, but thanks to their guidance, it’s now gaining traction.”

John Doggett
Director of continuous improvement, Landmark

“Outbuild makes it extremely easy for us. Unlimited users with access for everyone to the info they need at all times”

Matt Redman
Director of Technical Operations, Del Amo Construction

“I love the roadblock functionality because it’s tied directly to Procore RFIs!”

William Gallion
Project Engineer, Skender

“It has changed the way that our team manages our project schedule. We are able to track deviations easily while keeping our trade partners informed and on track.”
