7 Factors That Ruin Productivity in Construction

Each business depends on well-thought planning and the efficient strategy of leads. If you have weak spots in your management, it can become the main reason for the failures and unpleasant experiences. The same story is about construction and building firms that require high-level productivity to stay among leading market players and set the pace in the niche.

One of the best ways to make a difference right today is to start digital transformations. For example, project bidding software can come in handy for accuracy improvement and speeding up most estimating and cost-calculation processes. Of course, the productivity of your estimators and managers will increase with modern digital solutions.

But this is not the only tactic to take into account. Do you know the most dangerous factors of poor productivity? Here they are.

5 Most Risky Factors of Poor Productivity
A well-thought-out plan is a very important thing in any business. While forming a construction project it is the best moment to analyze everything thoroughly. Think beforehand about what equipment you will need. If the necessary tools are not available, productivity will suffer. A poorly thought-out plan can also lead to misunderstandings in the workflow.

Additionally, take a closer look at other risky factors that ruin your productivity in the departments day by day.

1 - Poor Communication
Productivity will be adversely affected by poor interaction between people. If employees have questions, someone should answer them in a timely and correct manner. If your team members do not communicate with each other, there will be no well-coordinated process and high-quality results. If there is communication, but it is chaotic and without stipulated rules, this is also bad.

2 - Force Majeure & Sudden Changes
Changes that occur during the execution of a project can reduce productivity. There are also force majeure events when the number of changes gets out of control. In situations like this, resilience comes in handy.

For the changes not to shift the project timeline, it is necessary to have a good experience, composure, and calmness. All parties to the project must respond quickly to any changes.

3 - Poor Cost Planning and Management
The importance of proper material planning cannot be overemphasized. It is bad when the estimate of materials is "flexible" or inaccurate. Then some materials may not be enough, while others will be superfluous at some stage of construction.

Pay attention to your management as well. To do away with the poor performance of your managers, be ready to:

• Control your workers through time tracking and other digital tools;

• Arrange meetings every week and discuss their tasks;

• Monitor their reports and decision-making quality.

4 - Delay in Making Decisions
Construction projects run into unexpected situations from time to time. At such moments, it is important to make quick, but informed decisions. This directly affects the productivity of construction. Ideally, if the contractor has access to the necessary information to perform immediate reactions.

5 - Lack of Skills & Overtimes
Redoing something is always expensive. It also takes time. Construction managers need to know for sure that workers are well-trained and briefed on all tasks before construction begins.

Remember also that construction is a tedious business. If builders are overtired, it can affect their productivity significantly. When construction managers only demand, while not caring about the rest of the workers, this ultimately negatively affects productivity.

To avoid all these problems, construction companies need to use modern software, which helps to improve planning, project management, and communication. With a centralized system that covers most processes and makes operations automated, companies can make faster and smarter decisions with real-time analysis.
