Senior Consultant (ATL)
Russell Beaty is a Senior Consultant at Draper & Associates’ Atlanta office. With more than seven years of experience in construction management, project management, CPM scheduling, and claims analysis services, Mr. Beaty serves clients in all stages of the construction life cycle, from feasibility studies through project close-out, and construction claims preparation and analysis. Mr. Beaty has a strong construction project management background and brings excellent planning, scheduling, budgeting, communication, and contract administration skills, making him extremely effective as a project manager.
Mr. Beaty’s project management experience with Draper & Associates includes serving in a variety of vital functions for both public and private sector clients on projects within the multi-family, hospitality, and commercial development markets. Currently Mr. Beaty is providing CPM scheduling services, including preparation of baseline schedules, performing project site visits, providing schedule updates, and overseeing subcontractor coordination meetings and project reporting, on multiple multi-family and hospitality projects across the United States.
Prior to joining Draper & Associates, Mr. Beaty worked as a construction manager with two Atlanta based development firms specializing in the multi-family market. Within this position, he provided project management oversight, financial coordination, and quality control on various types and sizes of projects.
“Draper has been an invaluable asset to our organization, assisting Kast with its preconstruction service needs, project strategy, scheduling services and other aspects of our business. Frankly, I’m not sure what we would have done in the absence of having Draper serve as a member of our team. Clearly I would recommend Draper to any firm who is seeking high caliber professional scheduling services.”
“The value add that Draper & Associates provided on our replacement hospital project was well worth the money. While we did not have in-house scheduling resources, the Draper process proved to be flexible and functional for our project team and subcontractors. The scheduling experience, ability to adjust “on the fly” with our changes, projections through the OPS, and detail provided by the NTS format, proved to be an asset to the project. I would highly recommend Draper’s services, and consider engaging with them for another project.”
“Every project that the Draper system was fully implemented on was delivered on time or early. Every project they were not on or fully implemented those projects did not deliver on time. Financially it is a no brainer when you measure the cost of their services versus the costs of delivering one day late.”
“I’ve been using Draper on all of my projects for the last 3 years. They work with our in-house teams to set up the OPS and then work throughout the project with our team and our Subcontractors to make sure everyone is working efficiently towards meeting the project’s goals. Draper’s scheduling makes it very easy for me to look at a monthly report to quickly know the status of every project I have under construction, and the look-ahead schedules are very easy for everyone in the field to know where they are and where they need to be at any given time.”
“Draper has been an integral part of our team for the last few years. Their schedules are very easy to read and make the field team’s job much easier when scheduling the subs. The bi-weekly meetings are a great tool to use for keeping the subcontractors engaged with the flow of the job. I firmly believe that Draper is one of the most important tools we use in keeping the jobs on schedule.”
A project that is scheduled with Draper affords the user the flexibility to present the data to the Subcontractor’s and the Development Team in multiple formats (both overall and near term projections). The schedules are logic-based like primavera and other predecessors, however, they are much more visually appealing and easy to decipher for field personnel. Draper’s hands-on tailored approach lends itself to production in the field, reduces the opportunities for miscommunication, and ensures your project has a strong administrative base to support all functions of the construction process.
