When construction projects run into delays or disruptions, site supervisors and project managers need to be able to communicate with a variety of contractors about impending delays and changes to plans.
A digital solution can help by creating an automated process where construction site managers can track and send messages to all relevant staff and contractors at any given site.
SimplyCast has created the Construction Project Disruption Notification use case, a complete solution for managing the response to project disruptions.
The solution makes use of worker tracking, disruption alerts, and live survey tools in order to streamline the project disruption communications process.
Steps to Improve Project Disruption Communications
SimplyCast saw the need for construction companies to be able to leverage a quick response solution for notifying contractors and other stakeholders when delays occur at a construction site to minimize the effect those delays can have.
The answer to this need comes in four parts:
Digital forms or existing contact lists can be used to log contact information for all contractors or key stakeholders involved with a jobsite into a single, centralized database where it can then be used when sending out disruption notices to workers.
When a disruption occurs on a construction site, all personnel tied to that particular job site can be alerted simultaneously that there will be delays using text messages, emails, or even phone calls.
As needed, surveys can be sent out to contractors and stakeholders to determine the impact of a disruption in order to ensure plans and timelines are updated effectively. Contractors and stakeholders can submit these surveys as many times as needed whenever a new development occurs.
Once new plans are determined, further alerts can be sent to stakeholders to ensure all parties are properly informed and can resume working once the disruption has been resolved.
By following these steps, a straightforward, automated solution comes into effect that allows for the management of disruption-related communications from within a single platform.
The SimplyCast platform is a no-code platform that allows anyone to build and edit their solution. As a result, this project disruption communications solution is fully customizable and can be tweaked or altered to meet the exact needs of every construction company.
