The app allows site managers to keep track of how well trade contractors are doing when it comes to cleaning-up after work.
SmartBuilder Software’s “Site Clean Up” is the first in a series of programmes aimed at helping construction join the mobile phone revolution.

A SmartBuilder spokesman said: “On construction sites, just like at home, someone has to take out the rubbish.
“The problem for main contractors is that subcontractors are often slow in doing this or leave sites without cleaning them.
“This results in untidy and potentially unsafe sites with main contractors having to employ additional staff to clean-up the sites.
“In addition to environmental and safety issues this can cost main contractors hundreds of thousands over the course of a year.”
The new app is designed to be used by building firms of all sizes and Site Clean Up provides a way for site managers to use their iPhones once they spot infringements on site.
The new app gives the contractor the ability to record and action subcontractors to clean-up by a set date or face penalties.
Sending warning notices ensures that they act quickly to rectify the problem. The app also contains a handy dashboard which displays all items, including the status of the number of pending, late or closed-out issues.
The Site Clean Up app also contains reporting functionality so that a user can benchmark the performance of different subcontractors.

Peter Daly, Managing Director of SmartBuilder Software said, “The benefits of using our Site Clean Up app will add to our clients’ bottom line immediately and also result in cleaner and safer building sites.
“It is also good for sub-contractors who get to run their businesses more efficiently so it is a win-win app for all parties.”
