Change Your Change Order Management

Want to hear a wild idea? Here it is: a new app. One that perfectly replicates the current system of managing Change Orders and RFI’s, as operated by thousands of businesses every single day. How does it work? Glad you asked. Here’s a typical day in the office using...

Progress Report

Before we get down to talking about Change Orders today, check this out. Now, no one loves making up facts up more than we do, but sometimes real facts are even funnier. According to the latest archaeological discoveries, the hammer existed before humankind! How do...

The Builders’ Holidays

August: the greatest month of them all, for at least three reasons: 1. The Galway Races. 2. Football returns on telly. 3. It’s National Water Quality Month in the USA. Okay, some of those are pretty lame (here’s looking at you, National Water Quality Month), but we...

Tech in Construction: Ignore It (and maybe it will all just go away) The Story of Mr Clayhouse Once upon a time, around 8,000BC, people built houses out of clay. They would literally just slap lumps of clay one on top of another until they had made what passed for...

The Tender- End Part – Epilogue

We come downstairs and out through the lobby, still blowing like two whales in the North Atlantic. The boss rips the sign from the wall as we leave the building and folds it delicately into a pocket square for his destroyed shirt, the crisp white paper in contrast to...

The Tender – Part 9

The Tender – Part 8

Women and children next, I suppose. The tenders are hermetically sealed in short order, using twenty bin liners, from an open pack of fifty he withdraws from the backseat. I idly wonder if the other bin liners were used for the last set of tenders or the body parts of...

The Tender – Part 7

Only the complete terror in my shrieking compels the boss to grind to a halt, our front wheels searching for purchase beyond the grass. A suspicious fringe of green grass verging the bare mucky field, disguising a drop of about twenty metres to the river and fields...

The Tender – Part 6

Thankfully, as he returns to the vehicle, he is shaking his head ruefully. I consult the map once more for another route, but in vain. “That’s it, just over there,” I say, pointing to a glistening steeple in the distance to our left, “but there’s no other road...

The Tender – Part 5

The boss engages handbrakes, clutch brakes and heavenly favours, and we lose only some paintwork to the rock wall as we pull out of that bend. “Here, start calling out them turns to me,” he says, “or we’ll never make it.” He pushes the map at me. “One, two or three,...
