So much time and consideration go into commercial construction projects, and sometimes, things can get back up or slowed down, costing you lost time and money. [bctt tweet=”How can you reduce the chances of delays in your next construction project? Here are 6 ways to ensure your project is done on time.” via=”no”]
Complete Your Construction Project On Time
When it comes to a successful and timely construction project, it takes everyone working together to get things done. To ensure your next project doesn’t have any setbacks, follow these six tips to ensure it’s done by the projected time:
- Plan Effectively
- Hire the Right Team
- Assign Accountability
- Keep Clear Communication
- Choose the Right Tools
- Monitor Progress Daily
1) Plan Effectively
Before you do anything else, you must have a master plan that is clear about objectives, scope, budget, and even the methodology for getting the project done. One way to do this is to have a meeting with all the major players involved to discuss the project and how it can best be completed in a timely manner.
2) Hire the Right Team
If you want things done right, you have to hire the right people. Do your homework and make sure you are working with contractors, subcontractors, and vendors that have good reputations and are known to follow through.
3) Assign Accountability
Make sure everyone knows exactly what their tasks and jobs and hold them accountable for their work. Make sure everyone has a clear understanding of what is expected of them, as well as the timeline for completion.
4) Keep Clear Communication
Without clear communication, people might become confused, make assumptions, or miscommunicate what they need to complete the project. Make sure all members understand your expectations and be sure to communicate with them regularly so there are no misunderstandings.
ProTip: To ensure your team completes the construction project on time, make sure all workers understand your expectations, as well as what they are responsible for.
5) Choose the Right Tools
Not having the right tools for the job can slow a project down. For example, if your project requires dewatering, you can save time (and money) by using an Aqua-Barrier® cofferdam instead of other time-consuming alternatives, like sandbags.
6) Monitor Progress Daily
The construction project manager needs to be aware of everything that is happening through the entire design and construction phase of the project. By communicating and checking progress daily, the project will move forward just as planned.

With the right people on board, a solid working plan, and the right tools, you are on the right path to ensuring a timely construction project.
