Reconstruction of an old family or apartment building is always a step into the unknown. Defects are often hidden and you only discover them when the work is in full swing. The moment a problem is discovered, a lengthy approval cycle and the search for an adequate solution begin. Several parties often have to be involved in it – worker, construction manager, budget manager, company management, investor and others. Communication stalls and reconstruction costs. The information system for construction companies Stavario is directly created for solving crisis and unexpected situations. Let's show the possibilities of use with concrete examples from practice.
While uncovering the old floor covering, the employee discovers that there are rotten beams under it. Initially, it seemed that the beams were in good condition and would not need to be interfered with, but the opposite is true. You need to inform management, propose a price for more work, get it approved by the customer, order the material and make the repair.
If the construction company uses the Stavario system, the processing will take place without unnecessary delays. An employee uses a mobile application to create a request to repair a charred beam. Attach real photos or videos and add notes about the scope and severity of the problem. At that moment, the company's management receives a notification, so they are immediately informed about the situation. He evaluates it and prepares a budget for more work. He sends it directly to the investor for approval via the application.
Once the investor approves the repair of the charred beam, the management orders the necessary material and sends it to the craftsmen for construction. He then informs the construction manager via the information system that he can start repairing the beam. Everything is resolved quickly without the need for a single phone call. In addition, you can also grant access to the photo documentation to the investor, so they can easily be convinced that the beam is really rotten and needs to be repaired.
Hand on heart - everyone can make a mistake, so it is possible that some of the defects will appear even during your implementation of a new building. If you detect it yourself before it's done, you'll save yourself a lot of trouble in the future. How to handle processes when an employee on a construction site discovers a technological error made by someone before him?
Among the most common defects in new buildings with a flat roof is the unevenness of the waterproofing base. Then there are problems with the drainage of water, its accumulation and the formation of puddles. The waterproofing layer has a much shorter lifespan in these places and often leads to leakage into the building. The unevenness of the substrate can be detected by the worker in charge of laying the insulating layer.
In such a case, again through the application interface of the Stavario system, it registers the detected defect, adds additional information and photos. Since the online construction diary is part of the system, the management can easily find out when the underlying layer of the roof was implemented, who worked on it and why technological procedures were not followed. The employee enters a solution instruction through the system, and the waterproofing layer is laid only after the defect has been removed.
Many investors supervise the progress of the construction themselves and check whether the work is in accordance with their ideas. Of course, they often also use the technical supervision of the investor, who checks compliance with the procedures. It may happen that the investor or the technical supervisor discovers a defect during the construction, or the execution of the work is not in accordance with his ideas. Investors also have access to the Stavario information system and can communicate directly with the construction company. He has the possibility to view the electronic construction diary and monitor the progress of the work.
Often there is a misunderstanding between the investor and the company. The work is done differently than the customer originally intended. In such a case, he has the option to record this fact in the system and ask the construction company for correction. In addition to the text message, they also insert photos and videos documenting the problem into the system. If necessary, they will also attach specific parts of the project documentation or technical drawings, which prove that the construction work was not carried out in accordance with the assignment.
Everything is recorded in the system, so the entire set of documents and reports is evidence for both parties. The system is transparent and prevents unnecessary misunderstandings and resentment between the construction company and the investor. At the same time, it simplifies all processes and ensures quick resolution of defects and problems, without unnecessary delays.
