Daily Project Reports: The Need for Transparency on Job Sites

Construction projects can be chaotic, for there are a lot of moving parts. In order to keep up with the busy day to day tasks, it is important to maintain daily project reports. These reports provide a general overview of how the project is progressing over time.

What is a Daily Project Report?

A daily project report is an important aspect of successful Project Management. These reports explain the details of the job site. It discusses how the project is currently doing. It also helps keep a written record of any delays or setbacks during the project with specific details to give reason to why the project got off target.

What Does a Daily Project Report Include?

The information for a daily project report should be collected at the end of each day. It should include the time and date, material and labor information, weather conditions, and any incidents that occurred during the workday. You can also add any other important notes or comments that will be useful to keep in the project’s records.
