Factors affecting job site productivity

Posted on November 7, 2018

Technology is being developed to enhance job site productivity. This is a statement we continually see in articles, and it most often refers to wearable technology, scanners, and drones. Rarely does it reference the products being installed on the job site, how safely these products install, or the accessibility of installation instructions. However, these are three factors affecting job site productivity for the better.

3 Factors Affecting Job Site Productivity for the Better

  • Ease of installation – the true timesaver

When putting furniture together, we know the ease of installation will impact how long it takes to complete that task. It goes without saying that a coffee table with labeled parts, easy installation instructions, and simple tooling will assemble quickly. The same is true in commercial construction. Whether you’re installing an HVAC or a fire protection system, installing the system efficiently will get you off the job site faster. Choosing products that only require a quick pipe mark to prep the pipe and battery-powered hand tools to install, like the QuickVic™ SD Installation-Ready™ System, can have a major impact on the overall schedule for those systems.

This same principle holds true for fire protection systems. Grooved sprinklers eliminate the need to tape and dope sprinkler heads, removing up to a day or more of prep and allowing all fitters to be in the air installing sprinklers out-of-the-box. Add up these hours, or even days, saved, and you could save weeks on your overall project timeline.

  • Safety is king

Onsite injuries are a common reason for stalled job site productivity, but the incident itself is also to blame. Construction stops temporarily, and the crew is short-handed while the injured individual (or individuals) recovers. Choosing safe products, which are fume and flame-free can help you move toward a zero-incident job site. The key is eliminating the risk by taking the dangerous activity off the job site. This will help keep your project moving forward, and in turn, enhance job site productivity.

  • Accessible instructions on the go

Choosing products that install quickly and safely can be one of the positive factors affecting job site productivity. If you pair this with industry-leading construction technology, like 3D scanning and preconstruction software, you will surely enhance job site productivity and see the impact on your bottom line.
