  • Article title: How Construction Fleet Management Can Be Beneficial
  • Article text: Managing a construction company can be a hassle because of all the challenges that accompanies it. Some key issues are bad communication, low vehicle visibility, unrealistic forecasting, poor [*link *]truck fleet tracking[*endlink*] capabilities, stalled cash flow, and driver dissatisfaction. Letting these issues persist could be detrimental to the business, but the implementation of effective and trustworthy construction fleet management could turn the situation around.

    Construction fleet management involves the planning, coordination, and supervision of construction fleets with a view to improve and optimize all related business operations. A construction fleet includes trucks and other vehicles, dispatchers, operations, drivers, and other key stakeholders. The management of such fleets allows key stakeholders to have insight into the day-to-day operations, and control over operations. This helps them determine the best way to improve all aspects of the business as needs arise.

    [*heading*]Main Aspects of Construction Fleet Management[*endheading*]

    Construction fleet management involves route planning, fleet vehicle monitoring, operator direction and supervision, data collection and reporting the status of the vehicles in use and the activities of the operators. Various tools can be used to achieve all this, depending on company preference. However, construction fleet management companies have recently started gravitating towards online solutions.

    [*heading*]Benefits of Construction Fleet Management[*endheading*]

    [*subheading*]Optimization of fleet vehicles and operator performance[*endsubheading*]

    To efficiently manage a construction fleet vehicle and operator data has to be collected, stored and analyzed. This data includes mileage, routes, purchase history, records on repair and maintenance, accident history, information on previous drivers, mechanical diagnostics.

    This collection of historical data guides fleet managers’ decision making and helps them implement policies that spur growth, increase productivity, and improve daily operations. For instance, the repair of vehicles in construction fleets is expensive but adhering to a well laid-out maintenance schedule will avoid unnecessary breakdowns and costly repairs. Having reliable records of the maintenance of vehicles would help to prepare and update the schedule as time goes on.

    This action will keep the vehicles in optimal condition, making sure operators can use them while they are at their peak performance capability. This reduces long-term cost, since the fuel consumption in a well-maintained vehicle is significantly less than the consumption of those not traveling at their maximum efficiency. Regular maintenance will also reduce the potential for safety hazards involving the operators, increasing their job satisfaction levels.

    [*subheading*]Improved Productivity and Increased Workflow[*endsubheading*]

    Construction fleet management systems significantly reduce the errors and issues that can cause disruptions in workflow. Fleet managers are meant to have a broad understanding of projects at hand, and by using the historical data gathered from such projects, the managers can map out more effective travel routes, reducing mileage and fuel consumption, and improving the company’s finances.

    [*subheading*]Efficient Invoicing[*endsubheading*]

    Construction fleet management facilitates the organized, accurate and trustworthy handling of invoices. Traditionally, payments, billing, ticketing, time tracking, signatures and ticketing have been done manually, but these processes can now be done entirely on secure digital platforms.

    Fleet managements that use these electronic methods can have their payment tickets and receipts signed, approved, saved, processed and accessed more easily by managers, operators, drivers, and subcontractors. This speeds up payments and builds trust between all parties involved.

    Using digital platforms also makes financial records more organized, safe and accurate. It even facilitates audits since transaction history can easily be traced.

    [*subheading*]Improved Budgeting and Forecasting[*endsubheading*]

    The insight gathered by construction fleet management systems paints a clear picture of the aspects of the business that are either gaining profits or losing money. This would make it easier to forecast expenses and revenue. When all business activities are organized, it would be easier to plan budgets and schedule the provision of services to clients, vendors and partners.

    [*heading*]How Construction Fleet Management Can Be Improved[*endheading*]

    Traditional fleet management systems improve construction businesses by helping to cut down operational expenses, boosting productivity and enabling safe working conditions if used properly. However, the usage of automated fleet management software based on cloud technology makes it work even better.

    This software provides real-time insights on vehicle location, performance and travel path. The truck fleet tracking software also picks up idle behavior, deviation from planned routes, and overspeeding, making it easier for fleet managers to train their drivers on how to drive better. Furthermore, the software can estimate arrival times, and can help determine departure times for the delivery of construction materials.

    The tracking software is installed in either the fleet vehicles or smartphones and uses GPS and other integrated technology components to send signals from the vehicles to the company database.

    Construction fleet management systems rely on a central integrated network for real-time information of all vehicles in the fleet to be collected, analyzed and stored. It is worth noting that there might be more than one fleet manager needed for the system to work as intended, depending on the size of the construction fleet.

    Lastly, construction companies that adopt tracking systems should note that it is important to let drivers know that they are being tracked, and should explain the need for the tracking exercise. Failure to do so might build distrust and dissatisfaction among those employees.


    Construction companies have begun to embrace the concept of fleet management due to the benefits and added convenience it provides. The usage of cloud-based fleet management software makes the work even easier and enables the collection of real-time insight and data used to improve the business.

_Article text: Many people purchase properties that already have furnaces and HVAC systems installed. In that case, all you have to worry about is maintaining the current systems and ensuring they’re suitable for your family’s heating and cooling requirements. However, when you’re in the desirable position of being able to build your dream home, there’s one more thing you need to think about, and that’s how your HVAC system can be integrated into the house design for efficiency and convenience. When you’re busy focusing on how many bedrooms and bathrooms you’ll have, the logistics of a heating and cooling system can seem like a minor consideration. However, it can be pivotal to your comfort and heating affordability going forward. As your house sketches are being brought to life, take a moment to consider the following house design information [*heading*]The Size of Your House[*endheading*] Before you purchase one [*link *]new furnace[*endlink*], think about the size of your home. If your combined square footage over a single floor or more than one floor is upwards of 3,000 square feet, you may require at least two furnaces for efficient heating and cooling. There are many advantages associated with having two furnaces for a larger home, including additional heat so that you don’t need to overwork a single furnace and enjoying even heat throughout your home. You also have more control over how warm or cool your home is, which can be crucial in the middle of summer and winter. A second furnace may also prove helpful if one is malfunctioning and to reduce wear and tear on both furnaces [*heading*]The Positioning of Your Mechanical Room[*endheading*] Careful consideration should be given to the positioning of your mechanical room or boiler room. Typically, this is an entire room within your home or a furnace-sized cupboard discreetly tucked away out of sight and out of mind. While it’s not an area of your house that you’ll often visit, its positioning while you build your home can be important. Many people install their furnaces in a garage, attic, basement, or utility room. While these areas can all be suitable, you may see the value in positioning your mechanical room or furnace on the garage side of the house. Typically, rooms over garages have the longest heat runs, which means installing the furnace as close as possible may prove valuable for efficiency and possibly even reduced maintenance. Some experts also recommend building mechanical rooms close to the exterior side of the yard. If you position it further away, you may need to have longer furnace and water tank venting, which might see the need for a more advanced system than you anticipated. [*heading*]Don’t Forget Heat Transfer System Requirements[*endheading*] The building code is constantly changing, and one of the most recent changes relates to ducted heat transfer systems. You may need more walls on your home’s main floor to install these systems in the basement. If you only set the dimensions of your mechanical room to accommodate a furnace, you may need to extend them for the addition of a heat transfer system. [*heading*]Be Aware of Increased Costs With Open Web Joists[*endheading*] Open web joists are trusses with parallel chords and a triangulated web system. When you’re trying to make your new property more eco-friendly, they can be a worthwhile consideration since they allow for thicker insulation. While HVAC systems can comfortably cater to open web joists, you may find that installation costs can be more expensive. Sometimes, HVAC system installers are able to install the main duct lines inside the joists, but that’s rarely the case. Typically, installers have to close in the sides of the joists while installing the return air system, which can come at an increased cost. [*heading*]Consider the Supply Duct[*endheading*] Your HVAC supply duct likely doesn’t factor into your thought processes when designing a new house, but it might save HVAC installation challenges if you at least consider it. During your home’s early stages of development, install window pockets in the foundation about two feet from the beam. By doing so, you may allow the supply duct to be installed along the total distance of the house, taking care of the heat runs typically located in the last joist spaces of the structure. [*heading*]Considerations When Choosing a New Furnace[*endheading*] Alongside making sure your home can comfortably cater to a new heating and cooling system, there’s also the challenging process of choosing one. Many different models are available, including four different types: electric, natural gas, oil, and propane. [*subheading*]Electric Furnace[*endsubheading*] Out of all furnace options on the market, electric furnaces are generally the most cost-effective to purchase upfront. These furnaces pull cold air from your property into an exchanger where electric heating elements warm it up and push it through the ducts in your home to heat each space. They don’t produce carbon monoxide, making them safe for your home, but they might impact your electricity bill. [*subheading*]Natural Gas Furnace[*endsubheading*] Anyone living near a natural gas line may see the value in considering natural gas furnaces. They can be more affordable to run than electric furnaces and work by igniting gas inside the burner. The flames warm the metal heat exchanger, which heats the cold air from your ductwork. It then returns hot air through the ducts, warming your home. These furnaces require flues to exhaust gasses but are often considered faster and more affordable than their electric counterparts. [*subheading*]Oil Furnace[*endsubheading*] When you require fast heat, you might look at purchasing an oil furnace. They operate similarly to natural gas furnaces, but oil is drawn from an underground oil tank, converted into mist, then sprayed onto the furnace’s burner. Oil furnaces burn hotter than natural gas. [*subheading*]Propane Furnace[*endsubheading*] Propane furnaces can be installed by a vent on an external wall rather than with a flue. They are more efficient than natural gas, and you don’t need to burn as much propane to warm your home. Designing and building a home can be an exciting project, but there can be a lot to think about. Don’t neglect catering to your HVAC system to avoid any costly installation issues later on.
