Construction companies across the globe are readying to return to work following the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. If you are part of one of those companies, now is the time to begin to put together a strategy for how to reemerge from the quarantine in a way that is productive, safe, and successful for your business.
Today forward-thinking companies need to be creative and, in many cases, pivot businesses to tap into new opportunities. For many, the answer comes in the form of leveraging new technologies to continue with work in a way that is safe for teams.
In a recent blog, Leica Geosystems, a Hexagon company, shares tips to prepare for when jobsites reopen and teams return to work. The organization is also hosting an upcoming webinar with industry experts on how to continue construction operations during these current times of crisis and disruption, and determine the next steps you need to take now to prepare your business to emerge stronger.
Some of the tips that it offers includes:
- Capture reality: This allows for a limited crew, while still having access to the jobsite.
- Access data remotely: Stakeholders can have access to information virtually through the cloud.
- Manage spatially: Be more intentional about using 3D data, understanding the role of BIM (building information modeling), and managing crews.
- Onboard crews: Train teams and get them up to speed quickly.
- Engage with teams: Maintain open lines of communication.
Now is the time for construction organizations to consider how they are going to return to work—and how technology might help in the process. How are you preparing for what comes next? What steps are you taking? What technologies are you tapping into?
