6 Tips to Maximize Productivity on Your Construction Site

The statement ‘time is money’ definitely applies to the construction industry. Whether it’s a loss of equipment or an inefficient use of your employees, your project’s deadline could be missed by weeks to a month. To ensure you are maximizing your productivity, follow these six tips.

Plan for Everything

The most expensive part of most construction projects is improper planning. There are too many predictable things that can happen that can cost your project a fortune. Before bringing anyone on site, plan for those minor details to avoid a major catastrophe. This keeps your project on schedule by ensuring you will have the proper manpower, supplies, and equipment every step of the way.

Optimize Your Crew

It’s understandable that you have particular crew members trained for specifics on the job. To remain up to code, they should do what they are trained for. However, there are a few non-certified activities that anyone can perform during their downtime. Be sure to speak to your entire crew about remaining productive, be it training another individual or cleanup at the construction site.

Use Storage Containers

Storage containers are not just meant to keep outdated items out of the way. You can rent temporary storage containers for each construction project you work on to keep a clean and organized site. Rent storage containers to keep any waste at bay.  Order your materials ahead of time and store away in case your project is ahead of its timeline. Your items will be there ready to implement into the next phase.

Implement New Technology

Every organization should embrace new technology. It improves workplace performance, saves time, and reduces costs. It is scary for some employees that have been on the job for a number of years to embrace any change. However, with proper training they can see how technology is not there to replace them but make their jobs easier at your construction site.

Track All Your Equipment

Can you recall how many times your employees have lost equipment or unfortunately borrowed equipment? It’s easy to keep track of all your equipment, tools, and other materials by adding an inexpensive GPS tracker on them. Mistakes do happen, and it should not slow down your construction project.

Keep Sanitation Units On Site

As your employees work long hours, they are bound to need frequent restroom breaks. Disturbing neighboring businesses may bring more problems than collaboration. It’s not very productive for these restroom breaks either as they need to spend the time walking or driving off site. Instead, provide clean restroom facilities and portable sink options for employees to access easily in seconds.

Don’s Johns has many sanitary options available for your construction site. The above tips combined with portable restroom options are a sure way to increase production for your next project.

Keep Your Customers Happy, Even During Business Remodeling

remodeling

Don’s Johns has been servicing the greater Washington, DC area for 50 years. As you may think of us as just a provider of portable restrooms for construction crews, concerts, weddings, and other special events, we also are here for our local businesses, even during remodeling.

If you’re working on a simple or complete remodeling project, you still have a business to run; you can’t just close your doors. Don’s Johns understands your pains of trying to keep happy customers, even during your business remodeling season. Here are three ways partnering with us helps you keep your customers happy during such a hectic and unorganized time.

Leaves the Impression Your Employees Practice Sanitary Habits

In most establishments, there are employee restrooms and separate customer restrooms. However, sometimes a place of business only has one. Your customers are going to notice the lack of restrooms for your staff, be it a food establishment or general retail store. Good hygiene and sanitary practices are expected nowadays. With germ spreading on the rise, a customer can’t help but notice and wonder if your employees are washing their hands throughout the day.

Help ease your customer’s mind and let them know that you have a clean restroom facility on site for your staff to use. This is also a great way to show the contractor and their crew you are looking out for their best interests as well. Don’s John’s restrooms each have hot and cold running water and ample amounts of soap. You’ll also find having a few hand sanitizers in your restaurant establishment for employees to use once they’ve left the restroom is comforting as well.

Don’t Lose Customers Because of a Lack of Restroom Facility

When your customers come out to shop and browse, they want to do so comfortably. However, having children with them could cut their trip short, if you are renovating the store and restroom area. Your customers may need to change their babies. Toddlers alert parents right then and there they have to use the restroom, not a moment sooner. Once your customer leaves your place of business, this opens the door for them to visit your competitor, with a clean restroom waiting for their use. The possibility of them walking back to pick up that item they were eyeing is drastically reduced.

Get the Portable Option to Meet the Needs of Your Customers

Make sure your customer needs are being met. Don’s Johns has a variety of standard portable restroom solutions as well as luxury restroom trailers that are ADA compliant. Each trailer is stocked with antibacterial soap to use with hot and cold running water, which is perfect to prevent the spread of germs during the cold season. The cool winter air prevents most from wanting to use a standard portable unit outdoors. However, our restroom trailers are a climate-controlled environment, for those side-walk sale shoppers to relieve themselves in comfort.

You can count on Don’s Johns to provide the portable restroom facilities your organization needs. We have plenty on hand and available for you to use for as long as you need.
