Unlocking the Efficiency of the Construction Industry

2020 was a challenging year for the construction industry. The pandemic, followed by the various restrictions, bans and lockdowns, caused major project delays, cancellations and increases in costs for many companies. The industry, which had been a traditional one, was forced to innovate and digitise to increase productivity during unprecedented times. For companies that are looking to increase their efficiency further in the upcoming year, here are some ways they can work towards it:


The role of each of us can impact efficiency at every stage of a project

The role of every member of your team is essential to ensure increased efficiency. To achieve this, companies need to check-in with their workers regularly and ensure they are motivated. This will guarantee that the construction site is up to date while understanding the problems the workers could be facing and also giving them further instructions. Regular check-ups ensure that managers can assess the productivity of the workers at timely intervals and make suggestions on the best ways to proceed with the project. Additionally, when workers know they are being monitored regularly, they will be pushed to put their best foot forward, increasing individual and team productivity.

Especially in the current scenario, with a limited workforce on site and teams working remotely, this is one of the most important ways for companies to increase overall efficiency. Companies need to ensure that workers feel comfortable sharing the challenges and problems they face so that the right steps are taken to help them solve issues. Building such an atmosphere within the company is essential to mitigate risks and increase efficiency in construction.

The role digital can play toward efficient planning, design, management and construction of buildings

The construction industry has always been an extremely traditional industry. Studies show that it is among the least digitised industries in the UK. For the industry to increase efficiency, companies need to adapt and use digital means to increase efficiency across the planning, design, management and construction phases of each project.

Utilising design software like BIM and CABS can help to design 3D, realistic models of buildings that are completely compliant with the latest building regulations. They help with earlier risk analysis, reducing the chances of error, construction costs and time. Similarly, utilising technology like drones and AI can exponentially help to increase efficiency on site, even with limitations on capacity. Such technology is crucial in increasing efficiency through the construction phase of the building.


In the current environment, with restrictions on large gatherings and travel bans, utilising project management systems and video-conferencing technologies can help teams stay connected and motivated towards being productive.

How standardisation and modern construction methods drive efficiency

Another essential way for construction companies to drive efficiency is by employing modern methods of construction to standardise designs and processes to drive efficiency and quality in the industry. Using such methods can give construction projects a substantial boost as they reduce construction time and costs, and provide greater certainty over outcomes.


Modern methods of construction are also known to create safer work environments and can help significantly lower capacity on site. Since components are pre-fabricated in a factory-like environment, weather-related delays are avoided, and they can be pivotal in reducing delivery times for projects. Glide on balconies, modular frames and walls are becoming increasingly popular in the industry.


How the adoption of new technologies can stimulate growth and efficient construction practices

Companies that adopt the latest technologies in the construction industry stand to stimulate growth and efficiency as these technologies can help reduce risk, bring down project delivery times, reduce construction costs and increase safety on site.
