How To Increase Construction Site Productivity
with our Productivity Analysis Service
We understand some of the major challenges facing the construction industry are controlling costs, complying with regulations and managing your workforce to make sure you have enough people with the right skills to get the job done.
Inefficiencies in processes, unplanned costs and an unproductive workforce can amount to up to 25% of the overall cost of a project, which could have a negative impact on your business and its profitability.
If you’d like to take out some of the guesswork, talk to one of our Productivity Experts about a Productivity Analysis. We can help you reduce costs and increase productivity where and when it matters most to your business.
Key jobsite productivity drivers
Using modern equipment
There are many brands and types of tools to choose from.
This seemingly straightforward choice of construction equipment and tools often affects the amount of time and effort required to complete a job, so can have a big impact on the productivity of a project.
Armed with the latest tools, your workforce can work more productively and if you choose a partner who can guarantee you support for when breakdowns occur, your business will avoid costly downtime due to unreliable tools.
Understanding the real costs of your tool park
Have you ever thought about how much your tools are really costing you?
What you pay for the initial purchase of your tools is usually only the beginning as the cost of ownership comes with many direct and indirect fees. From repair and maintenance, calibration and batteries, to the time it takes to organise tools.
To calculate the true cost of your tools, you’ll first need to highlight the direct and indirect costs. The purchase price is often only the tip of the iceberg.
Managing safety and risk
The construction industry is particularly vulnerable to theft because there are often untested personnel onsite.
In order to reduce the risk of theft onsite, you need to have a clear record of all equipment and materials owned by your business. This encourages workers to take more care of their tools, leading to fewer lost or stolen items.
Having a clear record of everything also brings Health and Safety benefits as you can easily keep track of employee training certificates and calibration and service certificates to make sure your teams are operating safely with certified equipment.
When it comes to increasing productivity, adopting digital technology is the fastest path to the biggest payoff.
It’s important to have the ability to measure data on your construction sites and projects, such as how well your tools are being utilised, where your tools and equipment are and when your employee and calibration certificates are due.
This means you will be more informed on the areas in your business where you can make productivity improvements and save money.
