What 3 Roles Does the Construction Daily Report Play?

The daily report keeps management engaged and informed on what is happening on the work site. Daily reports were once done manually via Microsoft Excel but now most daily report applications can be downloaded to your personal device, allowing quick access to all project information. It is vital to update your construction daily report frequently as it may be a point of reference in a contractual disagreement or construction claim. In this article, our Orlando construction attorneys supply you with three roles your construction daily report satisfies.

Worksite Overview

The construction daily report is a worksite overview and is intended to highlight the changes on the worksite. The daily report gives an overview of weather, delays, equipment, inspections, and materials delivered. It allows you to notate issues, task names, due dates, and the status of the task (complete or incomplete). You can even include the sites safety hazards specific to the day so all incoming and outgoing workers are briefed and advised.

Reporting Analytics

The daily report allows you to keep an eye on every detail and dollar spent. Your daily report will automatically include the date, report numbers, and project information. Observations and pictures of each stage of completion can be easily added and formatted. These analytics can automatically be converted to PDF versions and then sent to anyone.

Contacts Manager

The construction daily report serves as an excellent contact manager. The report can help you identify who is on the worksite each day, the overseeing supervisor, and who is available to schedule. Each contact should include their name, position, affiliated company, and what day they were on the worksite.
