Managing costs and projects
The industry has always been subject to economic trends, so when building demand is low, it's more important to budget properly and spend wisely. Profit margins hinge on project management and finding ways to come in on time and under budget.
Communicating and liaising
Engineers and architects readily embrace technology and digital tools. Collaborating with them through technology reduces the risk for receiving inaccurate data and delays in receiving documents like schematics.
Tablets, laptops, and other mobile devices allow you to be connected, no matter where your job takes you. It's also expected that you will be readily available, and in turn, you need your workers and subcontractors readily available and with answers at their fingertips.
