Leaning into the Tight Schedule

Efficient sequencing to expedite construction.


The Enota project team utilized Lean Last Planner techniques to help maximize production to achieve the tight schedule, made tighter by abatement required during demolition. Lean concepts were used to break down the overall schedule into smaller areas of focus. To help with this process, the team utilized Bluebeam Software to break the building and site into sequences. By having these sequences laid out for everyone on site to see, we were able to know where the best laydown areas, delivery entrances, and parking locations would be. Daily meetings with the subs were also held so everyone would know what sequence they needed to focus on that day. There were some instances where individual tasks were scheduled just hours apart rather than the next day, and having the color-coded sequences helped the subcontractors understand what needed to be done.

Preserving History

Going the extra mile to engage the community.


Carroll Daniel understood that the original Enota building had a special place in the heart of the community. Knowing this, there were a few things that our team did to help make the new school feel a little more like home. There were several plants from the original landscape that were kept in a nursey and replanted, and our team took a few thousand bricks from the original building and gave them to the owner to have engraved to distribute to the community. Carroll Daniel’s team also used the original wood doors for the entrance to the main office, placed a brick from the original construction in 1954 within the cafeteria stage, and preserved the old water tower on campus.  As the chief operations officer with the school system put it, “Carroll Daniel brought into the new school a lot of the old charm.”

Carroll Daniel Construction Company did an exemplary job building our newest school, Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy. Construction was completed ahead of schedule and was under budget, which were two very big wins for us. The staff worked as a cohesive team and project management was excellent. The contractor’s attention to detail was instrumental in making this facility an outstanding school. As a client, we experienced 100% dedication to our construction project by the Carroll Daniel Construction team.”
