6 Essential Monday.com Tips for Streamlining Your Construction Projects


Running a construction firm is complex, to say the least. Juggling multiple projects at once, keeping track of deadlines, and ensuring everyone is on the same page takes meticulous planning and organisation.



Enter monday.com, the platform built to streamline these tasks. Below, we'll break down six invaluable features you shouldn't ignore.


1. Mobile App: Keeping Field and Office Teams Aligned


Staying connected with your field workers is often a game of phone tag, but it doesn't have to be. With monday.com's mobile app, your on-site staff can update statuses, send pictures, and communicate directly with the office team, who in turn can assign tasks or projects as they come in. Imagine real-time updates without the mess of emails and text messages. You not only keep everyone aligned but also make life easier for your field workers, who can now report and track their tasks seamlessly.



"The monday.com mobile app gives our technicians on raw construction sites instant access to the project information they need and makes connecting with the team at HQ easy." Allie Swindlehurst | Operations Manager, Falkbuilt

2. Dependencies: Streamline Your Timelines


Construction projects usually comprise stages that depend on each other. Using monday.com's Dependency feature allows you to link these stages. If you can't start the metalwork until the concrete is dry, the platform will automatically push the timeline for the metalwork until the concrete phase is complete. This ensures you don't set up impractical timelines and keeps your project running smoothly.


3. Document Storage: Centralise Your Files


Cluttered email threads with various versions of blueprints and RFIs are chaotic. monday.com offers a centralised hub for all your crucial documents. Store everything from electrical plans to floor layouts in one place, and track versions to make sure everyone is using the most current. You can even add a tag to show who uploaded it and its approval status. No more sifting through endless files; find what you need when you need it.


4. Maps View: Visualise Project Locations


When you're overseeing multiple construction sites, a clear understanding of each location is invaluable. With Maps View, you can see all your project sites plotted on a map. This spatial awareness could even help you allocate resources more efficiently. For example, you might decide to use the same contractor for two nearby projects.



5. Weather Widget: Plan with Precision


Weather plays a significant role in the construction industry. A storm could delay your project, costing you time and money. Incorporate the Weather Widget into your dashboard, and you'll have weather forecasts right alongside your project details. You can plan your week knowing if weather conditions might interfere with your timelines.



6. Calendar: Keep Track of Upcoming Meetings and Milestones


As a construction manager, you likely have a string of meetings with stakeholders to keep your projects on track. With monday.com's calendar feature, not only can you see upcoming meetings, but you can also sync them with your Google or other calendars. Receive timely notifications and always stay ahead of your schedule.

What's the Learning Curve Like for my Team?
