Who Owns the Float?

Matt Handal

The concept of float is important to the understanding of CPM scheduling on construction projects.

Theodore J. Trauner, Jr., PE, William A. Manginelli, and Brian Furniss recently collaborated on an article entitled, “Why Owners and Contractors Should Share the Float.”

The detailed article touches on many topics including float’s definition, the different types of float, “float ownership” contract provisions, and addresses the question of “who should own the float.” If you are interested in the topic of planning and scheduling or would like to learn more about float, this article is worth reading.
