With a growing population requiring new homes and the government’s target of building 300,000 new homes per year, the housebuilding industry is showing signs of good health.
We’ve witnessed great advances in housebuilding processes and materials in the last decade, reflected in the widespread adoption of on-site technology. While manual methods persist on certain sites – risking inaccurate information, duplication of effort and silos of data between teams – a climate of progress is being felt right across the industry.
Problems on-site have been identified and solved with intelligent construction-specific solutions, transforming the way site workers go about their daily business. Needs have changed too: workers require instant information, more visibility and streamlined processes to build homes in a safer, more efficient way to meet current demands.
Challenges on the typical construction site, including workers having to communicate with each other between remote locations, should be met with new technology that’s intuitive to use and easy to deploy. Along with popular equipment like surveying drones and building-information modelling, mobile apps that integrate directly with housebuilding software and other devices are now being used regularly by construction workers.
Mobile Tick Sheets is an app linked directly with the Build module of Eque2’s Housebuilding Software, which connects your site and back-office activities, joining up your team and giving you complete real-time visibility of projects. With this housebuilding software, on-site staff can access site valuations remotely and instantly update Eque2 Housebuilding.
Mobile Tick Sheets also allows workers to track the progress of construction stages for each building plot, infrastructure section or any other managed work area. This provides you with greater control of subcontractor payments, budgets and stock, keeping your projects on track. Furthermore, our user-friendly app enables all planning to be completely automated, giving you significant time savings in all aspects of housebuilding management.
