For a proper project management in construction, it is necessary to use tools that improve communication and organization between teams. Find out more:

A construction project involves several stages and different professionals. From the study of the site, through the necessary materials and human resources, to the construction itself. Keeping communication focused and ensuring that everyone knows what to do, when to do it and how to do it is extremely important.

Nowadays, the management of civil construction projects is facilitated by the technological and digital tools that exist in the market. It is by sharing a little of our experience as a construction company, that Carul brings some of the tools it uses to manage civil construction projects.

These are our 4 tools for managing civil construction projects
#1 Microsoft Teams - A virtual office

It is normal for a construction company to have enough projects at the same time and in different zones. Therefore, it is important to streamline and facilitate processes, minimizing travel and ensuring that everyone remains in communication. This is where a virtual office comes in.

At Carul we use Microsoft Teams to manage construction projects. On this platform we are able to schedule meetings, hold videoconferences, chat via real-time chat, share documents and always have them on hand to access at any time.

As you will see through the following points, Microsoft Teams is a complete tool that allows you to assemble and work with all the applications that we will refer to below. Another particularly interesting advantage of this tool is the editing and collaboration in real time of Word, PowerPoint or Excel documents. Imagine that you are preparing a presentation for a client: you can perfectly do it as a team with everyone in your home, but accessing all the same PowerPoint.

#2 Sharepoint - Intranet anywhere

The tool Sharepoint it is also a Microsoft application and integrates easily with Microsoft Teams. Its great advantage in managing civil construction projects is its intranet function, that is, it allows you to have all the necessary documentation and information online anywhere. You can, for example, create a section dedicated to the expenses of a specific job and upload all invoices for that job there.

#3 Microsoft Planner - Checklist with online scheduling

It is important that the entire team, especially those responsible for each department, have access to a common timetable on the deadlines for each task. This helps to ensure that everyone knows what they have to do, how much they have to do and which tasks are dependent on other tasks.

This is where Microsoft Planner in the construction projects management. This tool helps to create order in teamwork, creating new plans, organizing and assigning tasks. It also allows file sharing, commenting and giving feedback on the work being done, sending notifications whenever there is an update.
