Construction, being an industry geared around collaboration and hands-on teamwork, is not the standard “work from home” business. However, with new distancing protocols to keep us all safe, the industry is finding ways to adapt.
Management team members are on rotation, keeping the people in the site office to a minimum. Attendance is reduced in the office to as low as 1 or 2 people at a time, depending on the size of the site trailers. With this new anemic norm for site management, general contractors as well as their subs are finding new ways to connect and maintain progress visibility on sites.
Cloud-based technologies, including the Eyrus platform, are becoming more and more essential to keep operations flowing. Accessing project data from a laptop, desktop, phone or any other internet enabled device is key to maintaining control over a project no matter where management is located.
With Eyrus, management can remotely see everyone on all their construction projects across their portfolio in real-time. That includes which subcontractors are present, how many trade members are on site, which tasks are being completed, what areas on site are being worked on, the density of those areas, and who is authorized, or unauthorized, in those areas.
