Using technology for technically complex projects

Effective communication is vital to the successful delivery of a project.

The contractor has a responsibility to firstly, effectively communicate the aims and timescale of the project as well as the plan devised to carry the project forward. Secondly, to ensure that tasks are fully understood and performed correctly, to an excellent standard.

Technically difficult projects pose a particular problem, in regards to effectively informing operatives on-site of the relevant details and information of the project, resulting in miscommunication of tasks and waste being produced due to over ordering of materials.

Such technical difficulties have been countered by:

  • The use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a major element on a technically complex project, providing all technical staff with tablets, this has enabled the effective transfer of information to describe the technical details on site with the operatives;
  • It has also reduced waste with a huge reduction in printing drawings, and more accurate ordering of concrete for site, thus reducing over ordering of concrete.
