The larger the project, the more difficult delivering it on time will become. So many things can happen that will slow down the site, throughout the building phase. Thankfully, there are tools and other ways to keep track of what is going on, so your project will not be delayed. Here are a few of them that will help you out on your next construction site.
Time lapse Cameras
If you are looking for a tool to keep track of all that is going on, on your construction site, then what you need to do is to use a jobsite camera for your time lapse. Maybe you have never thought about this before, or you did not know that such a professional camera existed today, but either way, the time lapse camera is the only solution that will enable you to know exactly what is going on, on a daily basis, and if the work rhythm is as it should be.
Most importantly, if the work is not getting done on time, you will be able to easily figure out the source of the problem, giving you the possibility to act on it immediately and stop the waste of time. It is also the best tool to help you get better in the future, as you can watch the whole time lapse, at the end. This way, you will understand the weaknesses and strengths you have had on this site, so that you can adapt next time, by solving issues and keeping the best methods that have worked well this time around.
Make Sure that Information flows on Site, all the Way to Management
Trust is not a word that should be used on a construction site. You need results. And to get them, you should ask for everyone on site to report to base, through the head of each department, daily. Anything that you postpone tomorrow, could cost you one or more days of delays, in the end. Managers are there to read the info that they receive from the people on the ground and determine if all is going as planned.
If it is not the case, it is also their job to react and change whatever needs to be, so that the work can get back on track. Sharing knowledge and receiving input from the people on site regularly, is also a way to get everyone involved and to benefit from any great idea one might have to accelerate the proceedings or to make the site safer for employees, as well.
Acquire Digital Tools to maximize Your Efforts
We live in modern times, where almost everything that we do can be helped through the use of digital tools. If we don’t keep up or use them to the maximum of their capacity, then we lose on efficiency, which we will probably end-up paying in time-loss on the site, which will translate into fees related to a late delivery. Digital tools offer a comprehensive platform for information to be translated into better management techniques and decisions. It should be used in every aspect of decision-making, when it comes to a construction site.
