Running a construction jobsite can be like directing a finely tuned orchestra. Or, it can feel more like herding cats. Multiple trades, different building phases, materials, machinery — not to mention unpredictable weather and other issues — make for a complex process of coordination from beginning to end. And in the midst of COVID-19, with additional safety measures needed, it only becomes more challenging.
The increasing role of technology both on the jobsite and in the office presents yet another layer of complexity that must be managed. Technology is used to facilitate on-site execution, digital communication across teams, and information collection for back-office work — ranging from real-time payments to building a historical database for future use.
Tapping the ecosystem of construction technology
The technology in question is often owned by other stakeholders, such as the project owner. Which begs the question — how do you leverage the value of technology and data that doesn’t belong to you? Effective partnerships and integrations between stakeholders and systems create a valuable mine of data that can be used at all phases of construction to:
- Enhance communications for teams and stakeholders
- Improve future bids through data and predictive analytics
- Monitor and optimize labor, budgets, materials, scheduling, productivity, quality control, resource planning, equipment management, and much more
“Ryan Companies has always seen great gains by opening up our technology to all of our partners and teammates on a project, regardless of the company they work for. This provides transparency … and transparency provides trust.”
–Mike Ernst, VP Insights and Innovations at Ryan Companies
