Building Site Manager Tips


The building trade is one of the key trades within our society. Without builders, there would be no homes, schools, offices, or other public buildings. To be able to make the most of your time working within the industry, you want to make sure that you are spending your time wisely and not wasting hours on menial tasks. As a manager, it is up to you to delegate tasks, both on-site and within the office. 

You may have several processes in place already to ensure that work is completed promptly to set deadlines, however, there is normally room for improvement. When you consider the areas that can be sped up, without compromising on quality, you may be able to make the most of both your, and others’, working hours.

Digital Asset Management

Having a number of images and other valuable digital assets can become complicated for bigger businesses. Especially when you have multiple people working on one project. When it comes to communications and marketing DAM is an extremely effective way of organising and updating files. Using a Digital Asset Management system – see – can help you to keep control over your images and other important files without needing to store them on one specific computer or digital device – the right people can access the right content when necessary. 

This can allow you to search for your imagery, as well as share it with others who may be working on your marketing or communications projects. If you need this work completed, but are spending your day on-site, this system means that those who work in the office (or remotely) can access and edit these content without your presence needed. 

Increasing Morale

Keeping your team happy within their roles is an important factor in any business, and as building work is often down to teammates operating together collaboratively, this makes team morale even more vital. Individuals who feel content within their role, and appreciated for the work they do, are more likely to be more productive, whilst encouraging those around them. In addition to this, a happy workforce is less likely to experience high levels of staff turnover, meaning the business may also be able to save money on recruitment fees. 

If people know that you are part of a company who values its staff, from the highest paid CEO to the lowest paid intern, this can help your business to flourish, simply because people may be more likely to choose a company that holds set values akin to their own.

Charity Marketing

Engaging with local charities can really help with your public image, and the relations you have with clients and promoters. Choosing charities associated with your work, such as those that build and provide homes for the poor either in your country, or even in the third world, alongside spending time actively engaging with this work can really help to show your company in a positive light, and as one that genuinely cares about others. 

Boosting success rates for the business that you work for is not always about increasing profits. Sometimes, it can be just as important to support those that work with you and to also improve upon your current public relations. This can, of course, sometimes also have a positive effect on your clientele and, therefore, profits as well.
