Productivity


Canada is a centre of excellence in construction innovation. To stay globally competitive, we need to put our pioneering knowledge of best practices to work — seeking processes to ensure safety, keep quality high, and bring costs down. 

The industry-led Canadian Construction Productivity Initiative is defining what productivity means for Canada’s construction and maintenance industry. Through awareness-raising, education and sharing of leading/best practices, our goal is to make productivity a core value of the industry — at the heart of how we work, and key to our sustained competitiveness in the global marketplace.

We all have a part to play. Get involved! Become more productive and help keep our industry competitive.

You can begin by:

  • Participating in benchmarking by completing the performance benchmarking tool.
  • Checking out the research, tools and resources available
  • Championing productivity in your organization
  • Leading the productivity cultural change in your organization
  • Being aware of the impact of decisions and actions that can impact productivity on your projects
  • Implementing tools that are available to measure and improve productivity

In addition, please follow us on Twitter (@BuildForceCan) and LinkedIn (linkedin.com/company/buildforcecanada) where we will be continuing the discussion on productivity (#ConstructionProductivity #PerformanceBenchmarking #HowWeWorkIsHowWeWin).
