5 Must-Have Construction Management Apps

July 3, 2019

There’s a lot more to construction work than just — well, constructing.

Contractors and project managers are also responsible for meeting deadlines, construction standards, and safety regulations.

Construction management apps enable construction firms to collect and share information from job sites in real time so they can stay on schedule and in compliance.

By leveraging mobile technology, construction workers can spend less time on paperwork and more time on the high-value work that they’re trained for. And construction management apps — particularly on a robust platform with SAML SSO and audit logs (like Fulcrum) — give project managers more visibility and control over job site processes.

From access floors to zone valves, you can easily build a construction app for any type of inspection or reporting with Fulcrum’s drag-and-drop custom form builder. But to get you started, here are five construction app templates that every firm should download.

Asbestos Inspection App

Asbestos Inspection App

One of the biggest risks to construction workers is exposure to asbestos, which can increase the risk of developing lung cancer. Download this app to indicate areas where asbestos is present to ensure contractors are protected from inhalation during demolition.

Building Inspection Checklist

Building Inspection App

Use this building inspection checklist to conduct a general overview of existing or new construction, including HVAC and electrical systems, even in areas without wifi or cellular connectivity. Document deficiencies that need attention and report inspection results to managers and other stakeholders.

Construction Equipment Inspection App

Construction Equipment Inspection App

Download this construction equipment inspection app to conduct detailed checks of tractor-dozers, loaders, excavators and more on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Keep inspection and maintenance logs and note when replacement parts should be ordered to ensure continuous service of all machinery.

Construction Safety Audit

Construction Safety App

Did you know that 20% of worker deaths in the United States occur in the construction industry? Use this construction safety checklist to report hazardous materials, unsafe working conditions or misuse of equipment, including photo and video documentation.

Roof Inspection App

Roof Inspection App

Use this roof inspection app to evaluate and easily document the condition of a roof based on materials, geometry, age, history, and signs of damage. Take photos of areas that need repair to ensure the proper pieces are ordered and reconstruction can be completed in a timely manner.

Once you’ve downloaded these templates, you can either use them as is, modify them to meet your project requirements, or use them for inspiration for other construction management apps you want to build. There are no limits to the number of apps you can build with your Fulcrum subscription!
