My Favorite Construction Productivity Paradox

My Favorite Construction Productivity Paradox

Here is a productivity paradox for you: “how can 15 people gain at least an hour a week more field time by spending an hour a week at the office?”

Right…, this is not really a paradox but more a ‘puzzle’ which has a clear straight forward answer.

The answer is this:

What is this?

This is the SiteAware Viewer with its 3D Annotation tool on an updated model of the jobsite, used to prepare and conduct a weekly trade coordination meeting with 15 people in the trailer on-site.

So why is that the answer? The use of our digital replica solution by a customer of ours, resulted in saving about 1 hour per week of his trade meeting duration, which usually takes over 2 hours and involves 15 people. This is about 7 hours a week or about 6 days a month added to the project productivity!

But this is not all there is to it. The additional “after-effects” are that coordination between subs increases, clarity is improved, less confusion happens later, so work is better streamlined and less errors are likely to happen.

I am sure that by now, the paradox is clear… and what I hope resonates even more is how with SiteAware, digital transformation of the on-site activities can increase productivity and quality.
