Productivity tips: keeping your projects on track

With productivity being a key focus for successful projects, we wanted to share our approach to working within the timeframes you need to keep on track.

Keep the bigger picture in mind

Completing a job on time and to a high standard of quality isn't only about the specific job tasks you need to complete, it also requires that you collaborate well with other contractors on site to ensure the whole flow of work stays on course, while adhering to health and safety requirements as a team. Keeping the whole project in mind and being aware of other contractors’ timescales when you plan your specific jobs is essential.

Accurate planning and time management

Account for every element of a project that will influence the way you work and how long it will take. This will give you a correct timeframe for completion. Accuracy of pricing and budget is also important. A professional estimator can make that sure proposals and quotations are exact and that you are able to follow through and deliver in line with your recommendations without putting yourselves, or the main contractor and project, at risk.

This approach helps ensure work packages are delivered within budget, on time and to the high level of quality expected.


Communicating with other teams is essential. As subcontractors, we are in close contact with the main contractor and the client at all times. We’ve put in place a number of processes to keep clients in the picture. One of the most important ways we communicate is with our detailed daily project job sheets which record everything that’s taking place on site, down to the finer detail of who’s driving the digger, what hours are done and by whom.
