Mid-sized Construction Management Firm Delivers Projects Successfully with Powerproject
Since 1911, Warfel Construction Company has established itself as one of Central Pennsylvania’s largest providers of construction management, design/build, and general contracting services.
The company serves clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and has built a solid reputation for its innovative construction solutions and sustainable building practices.
Project sectors include commercial/office, education, entertainment and hospitality, healthcare, historic renovations, and senior care.
Construction firms that last more than 100 years become adept at managing technological change – from motor vehicles to power tools to management software.
Warfel Construction prides itself on being able to apply new methods and tools to improve the quality and efficiency of their client projects.
So, when it came time for the general contractor and construction management firm to revisit its scheduling process and tools in 2015, Project Executive Guy Kingree and his team seized the opportunity. The change was necessitated by the growing obsolescence of Suretrak and the desire for a more construction-focused solution than Microsoft Project could offer.
The software was no longer being supported and created more headaches for Warfel’s IT department trying to keep the legacy tools running on up-to-date computers.
Warfel began a year-long process to replace Suretrak and Microsoft Project.
Kingree’s team researched and tested nearly a half dozen other scheduling tools including Primavera P6, and some smaller, web-based systems before choosing to standardize on Powerproject.
