Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) and sheet metal contractors continue to be faced with the challenge of improving productivity to remain successful in an increasingly competitive industry. In an effort to meet these challenges, they are turning to better preconstruction planning as a method for improving their efficiency, and subsequently increasing their profitability. The purpose of this implementation manual, which was developed as part of a three-phase research project by the New Horizons Foundation, is to present HVAC and sheet metal contractors with a comprehensive preconstruction planning process, laying out 50 step-by-step activities in 12 key planning categories. The process can be implemented fully or partially to accommodate each company’s unique project planning situation.
