Tips and Tools to Manage Construction Projects in Uncertain Times is a useful guide as provinces begin to re-open for business
BuildingPoint Canada today launched a new eBook to help the construction industry navigate the next phases of reopening during the global pandemic. Tips and Tools to Manage Construction Projects in Uncertain Times is available for download on the BuildingPoint.ca website.
While the world has been sheltering in place, “essential industries” like construction have been moving forward under specific guidelines and conditions. As the world’s economies continue to open up, construction jobs that were paused are beginning to resume, jobs that slowed down are getting back on schedule, and projects that didn’t get off the ground now have a chance to begin.
As most of Canada transitions into Stage 3, a new set of complications arise. There are currently no universal, workable guidelines on how people can safely return to the workplace, and not everyone is able to return to the jobsite or office just yet. This means that technology, automated jobsite controls, and seamless paths of communication are more important than ever. And while the construction industry is looking forward to a return to normal, it will be facing a new normal – one that will lean more heavily on technology.
Tips and Tools to Manage Construction Projects in Uncertain Times helps construction companies many of the challenges, including how to:
- Keep employees safe on the job
- Keep the jobsite safe and secure, even when managers are not present
- Keep track of equipment on site when staff is limited
- Collaborate and communicate well with workers onsite, in the office, and at home
There are also useful links to COVID-19 public response sites and construction industry resources for each province.
“COVID-19 has created a dramatic shift in the way we work, and there are tools available to help,” says David Davidson, General Manager of BuildingPoint Canada. “BuildingPoint Canada offers a broad range of labour, equipment and materials (LEM) solutions to help the industry improve productivity, manage risk, and reduce liability – but many businesses might not even know where to start in this ‘new normal.’ We created this eBook to help business leaders assess their needs and find the right solutions for their projects and teams.”
