A simple alternative to Microsoft Project for construction scheduling
all the features you need, none that you don't.

Replace MS Project with a scheduling
software built specifically for construction.

Outbuild is a user-friendly scheduling and planning tool for
construction PMs and Superintendents that simplifies day to day functions

use Outbuild embedded into Procore today

Procore integration.

You don't have to switch back and forth, use Outbuild embedded into Procore today. Create your master schedule with Outbuild and push it to Procore with one click.

Field and office finally connected.

Now your Lookahead is connected to your master schedule but lives in a separate place. Tasks at the Lookahead level will automatically roll up to the activities of your master schedule as you update them.

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.”

Jordan Yavari
Project Manager, Arco Murray

Track Reasons for Delays

Why are builders replacing MS Project with Outbuild?

"MS Project could be the most powerful tool on the market but does the vast majority know how to really use these tools at the end of the day? In our experience, not really.

It's too complicated to figure out all the bells and whistles it can do. 

The truth is that you have a silver superintendent who chain smokes, who doesn’t like computers and you are going to try to get him to use a program complex like that. 

Is not going to happen.

That’s why it is so important to use intuitive and simple scheduling programs. To encourage people and make it easier to have all the actors involved in the same conversation."
