This visit to the site is also scheduled in prior and intimated to the rest of the team whose co-ordination is required for the task allocated for the day.

This is where there is a need for training to acquire the new skillset. It is the responsibility of a construction professional to identify the training needs for the labourforce and plan them such that it doesn’t affect the progess of the project. Such new approaches shall be identified based on the project reports on quality, cost and time with new equipment or construction methods, whichever is found necessary.
