Highly competitive, construction is all about cooperation. You compete with your peers for the job, but once you win it, you must cooperate with every other business that you award a piece of the build in order to complete the structure to the best of everyone’s abilities.
Sure, there will be disputes – there always are on site. These disputes can either blow up, or they can be dealt with quietly and in an orderly fashion.
It is most people’s experience that the level of “blow up” is in reverse proportion to the level of visibility of all relevant information.
There’s a new construction project management tool on the market that will assist with just about every aspect of your build, right from the initial architectural drawings, through to the sub-contractors, compliance, the assignment and management of tasks and all communication related to the various work activities, maximising information visibility.
One of the key aspects of this tool is the ability to upload key documents that relate to both businesses and individuals, shining light on everyone’s certifications, licences and all manner of other important documents. This ensures that suitably qualified people are engaged on work appropriate to their skills.
All relevant site plans are available on every single worker’s mobile phone. Each has the ability to focus in on the smallest detail on a plan and to annotate that detail when making a query to the leading hand about how it should be implemented.
The more the teams talk, cooperate and interact with each other, the smoother the job will run and we’re left with many more fingers wrapped around construction tools rather than pointing at others in a blame-game.
In order to create this cooperative environment, it is obviously necessary to invite other businesses to the party. If you haven’t done that, you’re back where we started, one single business going about it alone.
