Resident Progress Update Videos during the Pandemic

The contractor has introduced an exciting and cost effective way of showcasing progress through video newsletters.

In response to coronavirus restrictions preventing the community visiting site in-person, the contractor has diversified communication away from hard-hat visits and resident meetings to digital video newsletters demonstrating progress that is otherwise impossible to observe. This has been a brilliant opportunity to increase the inclusivity of their communication methods as video updates are more easily accessible to people than site visits, and the videos have been well received by local residents.

To create the videos, each month site management film activity, such as craning in façade panels, on their mobile phones. These clips are edited into video newsletters by the contractor’s communications team and shared on the community website. These videos demystify the inner workings of the construction programme by exhibiting progress on site, as well as encouraging improvements in the image of the wider industry by realistically showcasing what happens during a complex build programme.

Over time, the videos will provide a strong record of the build and is an intimate insight documenting the transformation of the area.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
