The data you generate is more than simply your annual and interim accounts – it will probably include timesheets, delivery dockets and on-site wastage, sub-contractor progress, plant performance and daily site progress. All these factors can affect your project’s profitability. Understanding what data to capture and why is a key part of making better decisions. We can advise on what, why and how data should be captured, and best practice in its storage and interpretation.
Why we do it
We are passionate about the industry, to make it better for the people who work within and rely upon it for livelihoods. Many companies have used our services for claims and dispute resolution, and this can be an expensive, profit-draining process. Over the years we’ve come to realise that many of these issues can be avoided if managers could easily visualise their project’s progress and identify problems as they happen. We want to give you the tools to help you maximise your company’s potential and spot problems as they happen and identify and mitigate the risks to your future projects.
We provide a bespoke service that allows rapid exploration of the large quantities of data generated by the modern construction project. This cost/benefit analysis can be securely hosted for appraisal by all relevant stakeholders and can – subject to your permissions - allow them to collaborate, iterate and test their ideas, offering significant benefit over other ways of working.
We are passionate advocates for the adoption of new technology to reveal better and more profitable ways of working in the construction industry. The most important thing for your business is to look to cut unnecessary costs and improve practices; the information your business produces on a daily basis can be used to provide near instant insights. But possessing data is no good if you cannot analyse it, and the best analytics are no good if you haven’t captured the data. Helping you to capture the data required and develop the tools and visualisations your company requires is our goal.
Having reviewed the business and implemented any suitable software tools, we can arrange for either in-house or classroom training tailored to meet the needs of your company. This will include training in the software tools so that you gain the maximum benefit from their implementation. Our training goal is for you to maximise the return on your investment and for your company to become self-serving analytics. Our aim is for you and your company to develop an evidence led cycle of efficiency gains and build upon your success and skills.
With over 32 years in the construction industry, 23 of these as a quantity surveyor dealing with claims analysis, we understand what information is important and what your business needs to capture. But it’s not just about having the information ready for bringing or defending construction claims, it’s also about using it to make informed daily decisions. Using the data your company routinely produces you can identify problems as they occur, help prevent unnecessary costs, and ensure that unproductive processes do not simply reoccur on the next project.
Getting to know your business
Each business is unique; understanding your business enables us to gain greater insight into your current operations to identify areas that are perhaps less efficient. We do this by exploring the information your business generates to develop bespoke analytical tools which both maximise your businesses capabilities and return greater profit to stakeholders.
