Efficiency on the job site and during a construction project is critical if a contractor wants to deliver a project on time and within budget; however, this is easier said than done and it can be quite the challenge to be efficient. New technologies are helping improve efficiency on the job, but new techniques and approaches are being worked on and introduced all the time to solve productivity issues.
How can construction companies improve efficiency?
- Improve decision-making and management workplace. Reduce nonproductive activities. Take a look at daily on-site activities and operations and review when issues arise. You can identify opportunities that can speed up workflow. Measure the current level of productivity. Through this data collected, you can find flaws in the workflow and better streamline the operation. Establish an efficient communication system. Find ways to communicate with upper management in real time. Set a regular meeting where questions can be asked and answered.
- Embrace technology to manage the worksite. Technology can provide a competitive advantage.
- Listen to staff members and provide the right kind of training. Employees on site can be the best insight into how to make site processes efficient compared to the upper management who isn’t on site. Conduct regular face-to-fact meetings to ask about issues and get workflow suggestions. Training is important for efficiency. Give people the right skills to work and/or lead people.
- Give equipment regular maintenance checks. You want to keep the tools and machinery in good working condition. Broken equipment can delay projects.
- Improve procurement and supply chain management. Maintain positive relationships with suppliers.
