Olympia & York, the developers of the 8 million sq ft World Financial Center in lower Manhattan are using a computerized scheduling system to keep the flow of materials into the job site from becoming overwhelming. Contractors are required to call a central office and reserve the time they will need on any of the site's 38 hoists. The system is also used to bill contractors for the time they use, and to reconcile worker payroll with their time sheets. Olympia & York is considering using the system when the project is completed, to schedule deliveries to the buildings' occupants.
