"We're on schedule," says FCR construction executive Sanna, but he doesn't sound certain

There's an intriguing quote from Forest City Ratner construction chief Bob Sanna in a NY1 puff piece (mostly) on the Barclays Center, keyed to a visit from Nets Coach Avery Johnson.

(Surely the headline, Nets Coach Takes His First Tour of Barclays Center, is overstated. It's the first time he visited the building since the roof was enclosed.)

"We're on schedule," Sanna said, in a slightly defensive tone. "I mean, in this kind of business where you're outside all the time and materials are coming from all over the United States, any one thing can drive your schedule, but we're on schedule right now, scheduled to complete in September."

That leads to the question: if they go off schedule, what will it take--more overtime, opening the arena without the rebuilt Carlton Avenue Bridge--to get back on schedule?
