Do you need people for your construction project? Find out how much manpower you need here at Diya Consultancy. The number of people you need in a construction site depends on the size of the project, its complexity and many other factors.
However, there are some general rules that will give you an idea about how many workers you’ll need. As a guideline, we’ve listed below the approximate numbers of workers you’ll need for the most common types of construction projects. This list is not all-inclusive and may vary depending on the type of worker you need (e.g. bricklayer or plumber). Remember that these figures are only an approximation and you should pay special attention to the following points: How many men and how many women? What’s the average age of the workers? Is the project likely to be completed within 30-days or more than 30-days? Are the workers likely to be union or non-union? Does the project have a high or low potential for accidents? How many supervisors? What is the daily output of the workers (in man-hours)? As you can see, there are many factors to consider when estimating the manpower requirements of your project. You should never rely on these approximate figures alone. Always pay special attention to the above points and always ask for our help if you need it. Our expertise in this field is unrivaled.
This is important because the quality of your construction site and the productivity of your workforce are crucial in ensuring the successful completion of your project and the satisfaction of your customers. A small job: Up to 5 workers If you’re doing a simple job (like hanging a sign or putting up a fence) you’ll probably only need a maximum of five workers. Usually, such jobs take 1-2 days to finish and they can be done by one or two workers. Keep in mind that if you are using sub-contractors they will add to the number of workers you’ll need. Bulk of the work: 6-10 workers If you are constructing a multi-story building or a major infrastructure project like an apartment building or a shopping mall you’ll definitely need more than five workers. Such projects usually take 3-6 months to finish and they are best constructed by a team of 10-20 workers. Again, if you are using sub-contractors they will add to the number of workers you’ll need. Major renovation: More than 20 workers Renovating a major structure like a hotel, office building, hospital or school will almost always require at least 20 workers. Such projects may take 1-2 years to finish and they should be constructed in phases so as not to disrupt the operations of the building. If you are using sub-contractors they will add to the number of workers you’ll need. General construction: 40+ workers Most construction projects need at least 40 workers.
