Keep accurate records of your project with our Construction Daily Log template pack.


Why do I need to keep a daily log?

Records are essential to any construction project, and will be crucial to agreeing changes, settling final accounts or in the case of a financial dispute. Our construction daily log template is perfect for keeping those records.

Also, having detailed evidence of hours spent on completing activities is likely to result in your changes claims getting agreed more promptly without debate over time spent, so this can have a positive impact on your cash flow too.

You can also use the information collected for monitoring the performance of subcontractors, employees or checking that your productivity assumptions in your estimating are accurate.

Records are absolutely crucial in agreeing changes, resolving financial disputes and settling final accounts.


What do I need to record in my Construction Daily Log template?

Activities – You should record time spent on each activity. for assessing the productivity of completed works in a delay dispute.

Weather – Does you contract allow you to claim loss and expense or extension of time for bad weather? If so, a record of the weather each day and it’s impact on the works is critical to proving your entitlement.

Variations – Again, using your sheets to evidence claims for changes can prevent any dispute over the impact on the project when you come to agree the costs with the client.
