Does anybody have a good story or example they can share w/ me that I can share with my guys as to how much filling out a detailed Daily Report can save a subcontractor w/ negotiations, back changes, mediation or arbitration?
Yes as a matter of fact just today...builder claimed I delayed a project by 6 weeks. I showed him daily reports and my foreman's time cards which proved when we were on site and what wasn't ready by him for us to start, and then I dug out emails with revised plans dated 4 weeks after he said we should have started.
As the GC or Super on the job dailys provide a record of how the job was manned and by who. Also a record of materials delivered and what was accomplished that day. Recording the weather, visitors and any issues thjat arose was very handy. When lack of production was discussed with various sub-contractors a quick review of dailys indicating their men arrived late or left early ended the arguement quickly.
