When working on residential construction projects, whether large or small, you need to bring together teams with different skills, working on different elements at the same time. That means it can be difficult to gauge progress and, with so much going on, it can also be difficult to ensure that every single element is built to the correct standard.
Residential construction management software gives you the ability to monitor everything happening on-site, communicating centrally with your team, intervening where you need to and pulling data for your clients so that they’re always up-to-date. By digitising data entry, construction software for residential projects can also reduce the amount of time site managers and project managers spend on paperwork, keeping all data organised in one place. In addition to project management, you can also use construction software like PlanRadar to conduct inspections, manage health & safety regulations, create key building documentation and carry out simple tasks like snagging.
When you’re choosing the best project management software for your residential projects, it’s important to consider what is best for your business. Maybe you need software that focuses on reporting, or maybe you need an app that is specifically helpful when managing subcontractors. When you’re trialling different software options, make sure to include a representative from all areas of your business, and maybe even some subcontractors. Their feedback will tell you if the software can be successfully implemented. It’s especially important that site software is available on all mobile devices and is easy and intuitive to use.
Once you’ve tested several potential options, gather all the feedback, compare the prices you’ve been quoted and make a decision confidently.
PlanRadar is an extremely flexible platform that can be used in a number of different ways. Here are some of the key ways that residential property developers use PlanRadar:
Yes. PlanRadar is suitable for use by housing developers of all sizes and structures. One of the key reasons is that subcontractor accounts are included free of charge, so you can manage an extremely large team with a relatively small number of licences.
For smaller developers, we recommend a custom consultation with one of our experts so that they can discuss the best package that will enable small teams to take on bigger and bigger projects.
If you’re a housing developer that also manages properties post-construction, you can take advantage of PlanRadar’s functions throughout a building’s life cycle. Our platform can be used for maintenance, safety inspections and many other elements of facilities management. You can simply hand the project over, with all final plans, BIM models and as-built drawings, to your property management team and they can use their own ticket templates and reports to carry out their daily tasks.
Alternatively, you can export and handover all project data to an external property management firm selected by the building’s owners and they can choose to continue managing the building with PlanRadar or another software of their choice.
