Every construction professional knows unanticipated events are a normal part of working in the construction industry. These unexpected nuances can have a ripple effect on everyone’s productivity. However, this does not have to be the case. In Part 1 of our series, we talked about the importance of hiring qualified people and making safety a priority. In this second part, we will discuss more areas where site productivity can be improved.
Secure Quality Tools and Materials
If the proper materials, equipment, or tools needed to complete a project are not available, productivity will certainly decrease. When workers have to wait on equipment, idle time increases. Additionally, inefficient storage size and location, as well as a poorly planned job-site will halt progress.
Improve Site Access
Planning a job-site is vital. Too many interferences to the work area will have a significant impact on productivity resulting in more expenses, delays, and disruptions. It’s vital contractors plan in advance to avoid these issues or ways to mitigate the impact it has on the entire project.
Dealing with Claims
Since a decline in productivity can lead to loss of productivity claims, a proactive plan for dealing with claims is necessary. To prove or disprove these claims, construction professionals need to understand how inefficiencies are measured, how they are identified, and if recovery is possible based on the contract agreement.
