I have shortened the turn-around on major projects significantly over the last few years of teaching. Lab reports get about 2-3 days - granted, there's very little creativity required - for the first draft, and 1-2 days for the final draft. We've usually done most of it in school, anyway, so those who work hard in class are rewarded by having less to do at home. The best approach of all may be to break the project up into bite-size pieces and give the kids intermediate deadlines on the way to the final project.
