Sustainable Property Development

Can We Make a Difference?


What are the costs and gains of using sustainable methods in property development? Is the game worth the candle? Check out how a construction management platform can help reduce the overall costs of projects in your company!

As an innovation officer, you drive a digital and cultural transformation while managing innovation on a shoestring. You are the person responsible for leading the technology strategy in your company. A lot is on your shoulders as you have to keep up with technology and its novelties all the time.

Being in control of the budget and organisation in a company 24/7 is not a piece of cake. It requires not only a huge amount of dedication, but also fast forward thinking, holistic view and proactivity. Naturally, challenges occur along the way but it is not the reason to be discouraged.

Are you curious to find out how to support sustainability within your company? Whether using sustainable materials in property development projects is actually worth the price? What innovation has to do with it? And finally, how can a construction management platform help you reduce the overall costs of a project? You will find all the answers to these and many more questions in this article.

Sustainable Methods - Worth It?

If you have been following our blog posts for quite some time now, you may recall that at the beginning of this year, we touched on the green building phenomenon and how beneficial it can be in construction. And we are still very much sticking to this idea. So in case you missed it, we’ll give you a quick recap.

Green building refers to the way of design or construction where maximising the employees’ safety and decreasing the amount of used materials is a primary purpose. It consequently helps to reduce construction’s negative impact on the environment.

To help you achieve that, you can reach for some sustainable building materials available on the market, such as: bamboo, cork, recycled materials, straw bales or even fungi (yes, the ones that include mushrooms). All these construction materials have one thing in common: they are produced from renewable resources and have, therefore, no adverse effect on the environment, which is a win-win!

How about Innovation?

Innovation is and will always be driving the company’s growth and development. It should never play second fiddle when it comes to your business processes. Why? Well, innovative solutions and technology will not only support the company’s operations, but they will also give both you and your team more confidence in putting brand-new ideas and solutions into practice.

Still not convinced? Treat it as a booster shot for your business that will instantly speed up new technology adoption at your company and build its agility.

We realise, however, that your doubts concerning investing in innovative solutions can stem from the cost of such investment. Let’s be honest, it is not the cheapest option out there, but it is definitely the right one for your business! And although it may seem costly at first, eventually, you will notice that your decision totally paid off.

Construction Management Platform - A Step in the Right Direction

An excellent example of such innovation could be a management platform. Its benefits definitely outweigh the cons (which, by the way, are not numerous). As the list of gains is quite extensive, we have decided to contain ourselves a bit by presenting the most crucial advantages for your company and you specifically. Take a look:

  • Reduces the overall costs of projects

  • Improves communication

  • Improves the budget spending

  • Improves management

  • Supports daily processes

  • Plans operations optimally

  • Reduces carbon footprint

  • Centralises data

  • Reduces manual processes

  • Increases revenue and growth

And we could go on and on but that’s not the point. The bottom line is you will gain so much while investing so little that it would be a sin not to try and take advantage of a construction management platform and its “blessings”.
