Thinking of developing a building? Consider technology as one of your building tools
Building development is a complicated process, to say the least. From beginning to end, there are thousands of interconnected pieces all moving at the same time. With so much going on, it can be tricky to stay on top of it all. Luckily, integrating technology into your toolkit can help improve a few different processes.
The inevitability of defects
If you’re a building developer, you are eventually going to stumble across a defect or two, it’s just par for the course. Although at some point they are inevitable, how you stay on top of them is what matters. Keeping an eye out for possible defects along the way is a good start. Looking for design flaws or at the plumbing at earlier stages will reduce stress further down the track. From here you can keep track of them by integrating easy-to-use technology so these issues are easily accessible.
Handling of assets
During the process of development, you are going to acquire more and more assets for your building. From cooling fans, to hot water valves, to fire extinguishers – there are so many items each with their own locations, warranties and more to keep track of. By incorporating all the information into one location, via the use of technology, you can make it easier to find and keep track of these aspects when needed.
Trying to manage all those keys
So you’ve gotten past the stages of the build and now you have a building with a multitude of doors, a multitude of keys, and a multitude of tenants and contractors who need those keys? It can be incredibly tricky to keep track of keys no matter what stage of its life the building is in. By putting a system in place where you know where all keys are at all times, you can reduce stress. While this can be done in a variety of ways, using technology (even something as simple as coloured system) will help you to stay on top of who has what.
