As a construction business owner, you're likely always looking for ways to make completing your projects a little easier on everyone involved. Here are a few important things you can use to make your construction company's projects easier and less time consuming overall:
A Refreshment Center
It's important to keep your construction crew hydrated while they work, or you may experience reduced production levels and a loss of manpower when you need it the most as time goes on. And if you rely on your crew to stay hydrated during working hours, there is a chance that the job won't get done – at least every day like you expect. So take it upon yourself to make sure that your crew members stay hydrated throughout the day by setting up a refreshment center for them to enjoy during break time.
The refreshment center should include at least a multi-gallon water container with spigot and an ice chest full of ice to cool cups of water down with. You can turn the refreshment center into a perk by including containers of sports drinks and iced teas that are tasty yet hydrating. Stay away from sodas and coffee, as they'll likely have a dehydrating effect on your crew as the day progresses.
A Roll Off Container
Having a roll off container dropped off at a job site before you begin a construction project will make cleaning up the construction area and transporting debris off the property a breeze. Instead of your crew members having to stop work a few minutes early to clean up before they clock out, they can easily clean up after themselves as they work by throwing their debris away in the roll off container. Then they can work all the way up to clock out time.
You can throw even large pieces of building material in a roll off container, so you won't have to worry about making special trips to the landfill. And when the roll off container gets full, just call the company you rented it from to have it removed and an empty one delivered in its place.
A Portable Toilet
You stand to lose many production hours throughout the year if your crew members and colleagues have to go offsite or walk to a distant building every time they have to use the restroom. So make the chore easy on everyone by placing a portable toilet near the construction site. When someone needs to use the restroom, they can be gone and back to their jobs in a matter of just a couple of minutes. And renting portable toilets that feature sinks will help keep your crew members healthy as time goes on so they will be less likely to call in sick when you're counting on them to help you complete a construction project.
