    Our contract requires the use of MS Project. Does anyone know of an MS Project template available for self-supporting microwave tower construction (from site assessment through project completion)?

    Although a template might be out there, most companies will not part with their work product since they've invested some time into designing it. You might be able to adapt some of the construction templates that are available from MS Project Work Groups. The unfortunate part of developing one is that unless it's for a multi-hop high six figure project or greater, the job is typically over before the project owner's PM has even evaluated any progress or pricing. Gantt charts and other critical path programs can be the lifeblood of a major project; however, the short fuse of most wireless construction projects, and the client's inability to provide and commit to their timelines make them useless in most applications.
