The development of a construction project is a business that represents many challenges and is subject to the influence of several external factors that are sometimes difficult for developers to control.
While the industry is often very lucrative, profits can quickly become affected by cost overruns. The manufacturer assumes all risks, with no guarantee of return on investment. To ensure successful results, however, everything that can be controlled must be thoroughly considered, planned, and executed.
If you want to further ensure profitability in terms of construction development, you have to take into account preserving efficiency and productivity. Naska.AI is a unique software platform that helps builders in all phases of development.
Below we will share 10 tips to improve the efficiency of your construction project both.

1. Clear Vision of the Project
Builders of residential buildings and units must be able to clearly present a vision of the design. Naska.AI therefore enables you to quickly create detailed documentation to support your sales.
The software also offers unlimited possibilities for creating property views and provides fast and accurate visualizations without the need to outsource this work. Another advantage is the fast production of documents for clear, secure and easy coordination with customers or specialized suppliers and subcontractors.
2. Optimize Design Processes
The production of engineered derivatives must be efficient, productive and accurate at all stages. This is a fundamental requirement for delivery. Our construction AI software is particularly suitable for creating and reviewing design variants.
Its file structure allows a quick comparison of changes, thanks to its customizable design hierarchy. It also offers several options for customizing and defining standard construction components, which can then also be adapted to new projects.
3. Comply with Planning
The detailed templates of our software can be used for all types of regulatory and planning requirements. Moreover, the level of detail offered makes it possible to
- Extract data from the model to meet design or drawing requirements.
- Obtain the exact geometrical dimensioning of the components.
- Provide accurate information for the production of prefabricated elements, all through a single solution.
Naska.AI supports all standard data formats. This further simplifies data export procedures.
4. Manage Change Effectively
Managing and controlling changes in a construction project to avoid errors and overlaps is essential to stay on time and on budget. The associativity between views and sections, reports and other derivatives offered by this type of software allows changes to be made only once in the model, with automatic updating in each area, thus avoiding design errors.
On the other hand, the integrated issue manager, which is synchronized with a cloud-based platform, allows the comparison and management of templates, also created by third parties. With these tools, design quality is assured and the impact of any changes in project planning and construction is mitigated.
5. Keeping the Budget Under Control
Establishing a budget based on a reliable take-off of quantities and materials is important to control construction project costs, including understanding the implications of any changes.
Thanks to robust reporting functions, Naska.AI contains all the information for reliable budget allocation and calculation. The reports are also customizable and the software also allows the calculation of materials of non-modeled elements, so that quantities not included in the model can also be calculated.
6. Create Detailed Construction Documentation
Ordering materials, scheduling operations, managing safety: everything depends on the quality of construction documents. The use of software represents excellence in the creation of executive and construction documentation, because it makes it possible to easily develop detailed models with a view to buildability and to generate tables and documents.
Models are designed quickly with a very high level of detail and less effort. Moreover, the possibilities for creating derivatives such as calculations or details become endless. In particular, automated tools make the creation of tables quick and easy.
7. Design and Produce Prefabricated Elements
Prefabricated components are increasingly used in a construction project because they offer greater cost control, high efficiency and construction simplification. With BIM design software, production sheets become created quickly, with a high level of automation and significant time savings.
8. Facilitate Site Planning
Accurate construction site planning can make all the difference in the success of your project. Our construction AI software includes tools for terrain modeling, access planning and utility planning functions, allowing you to consider unique aspects of construction sites early in the planning process.
It also supports site layout planning with construction equipment, such as cranes, so that their location can be considered and space and location issues can be resolved before the structures are actually on site.
9. Invest in Employee Training Programs
Of course, the use of BIM software only facilitates the development processes of a construction project, so having a competent staff is also essential to ensure the efficiency of the work. So training workers is very important, especially those who manage the principles and techniques to ensure a smooth implementation of the project.
When personnel acquire the relevant skills to develop these types of projects, the company can make significant gains. A field operations manager, for example, could use the skills learned to guide employees in installing beams more effectively.
10. Automation in Construction
Executing a construction project nowadays involves resorting to the automation of certain activities in order to improve efficiency on the job sites. Robots and drones, for example, perform activities that streamline the construction process, optimizing accuracy and productivity without the need for employees to move from one place to another. Automation, in short, allows workers to concentrate on more important or critical tasks, while robots take care of repetitive tasks, reducing overhead costs.
The construction industry is profitable, as long as you control costs as much as possible. AI construction Software like Naska.AI can help you achieve that goal with a range of tools to optimize sales, design, quantity surveying, scheduling and construction planning.
We can say, therefore, that this software supports builders throughout the entire project life cycle with tools that improve productivity, minimize risk and protect profit margins.
