Construction is a very competitive industry: with increasing project challenges, shrinking budgets, and higher client expectations, construction professionals need to get things done right the first time.
Focus is usually on skills, planning, and productivity. But a recent survey in Australia showed that 85% of new build strata units are defective on completion.
Has quality fallen off the radar? Here are 3 insights and tips to better deliver your projects and drive down the cost of managing quality.
Start as early as possible
Starting the quality control process well before handing over reduces the number of defective works at project completion. Statistics from the platform indicate our customers achieve 90% less defective works at completion when starting to use Rawfor at concrete works on site.
Tip: Action quality issues as you go and as early as possible.
Enable everyone on site to take part
Quality control is usually run from the top down as a company objective. But we see greater results when everyone works together from down to top: That is your workers on site all the way up.
Tip: Enable your workers to take responsibility on quality issues and give them the right tools to capture and respond to defects and issues as they go.
Use smart tools to reduce your cost
Construction companies hire at least one full time employee to use spreadsheets, emails, and phone calls to manage defects: a very inefficient, inaccurate, and expensive way to do things.
Know that cost of technology and smart applications have fallen down in recent years. Everyone nowadays has access to the internet on their mobile phones.
Tip: Start using smart apps to drive your cost down and better allocate your resources.
