Construction Draw Schedule

A construction draw schedule is a financial tool used by contractors in identifying percentage of completion points in the project for the bank to advance proceeds to the contractor. The construction draw schedule is instrumental in keeping the project moving along.

It is essential to negotiate with the buyer and the bank for proper release points in the construction draw schedule.
