How Does UBG Keep Up With Industry Trends and Safety Guidelines?

The commercial construction industry is constantly evolving. Every year, we see an abundance of new technology solutions improving efficiency and new guidelines for enhancing construction safety protocols. In order to stay competitive, commercial subcontractors can’t afford to be left behind by all of the frequent changes. Staying on top of industry trends is essential for long-term success and for maintaining a competitive edge.

Top general contractors often look to UBG as one of the best commercial framing subcontractors in the market. Thanks to our leadership team’s more than 30 years of industry experience, we’ve built an extensive network of general contractors, subcontractors, and construction safety experts. It’s these partnerships and relationships that have helped to position UBG as an expert in the field and allowed us to stay up to date on the latest industry trends and safety guidelines.

As a result, it’s safe to say we’re always ahead of the game. We’re constantly learning, evaluating, and adopting new industry guidelines and construction safety standards aimed at improving our operations. It’s just one of the many ways we ensure strong performance and provide added value to our clients.

Wondering how UBG stays up to date on all the latest industry trends? Here is how we do it:

We’re Always Investing In Technology

Many commercial construction firms are slow to adopt new technology, but our team at UBG firmly believes that leveraging tech can set you apart. Our leadership team is constantly evaluating and investing in new solutions that improve performance and safety. This is just one of the reasons our GCs value partnering with UBG.

Whether it’s our project management system that powers our day-to-day job site operations, our advanced cameras and drones that allow us to monitor every detail of the job, or our estimating software that allows us to bid work with precision, we are quick to adopt a solution that makes a meaningful difference in our performance.

We Set High Safety Standards

Nothing is more important than safety in the commercial construction industry, and nobody takes safety more seriously than us. The health and safety of our workers, partners, and everyone who steps onto the job site is our number one priority. We also recognize that inadequacies in construction safety training can be detrimental to project timelines. 

We stay up to date on the latest safety guidelines through our robust safety program which drastically exceeds OSHA standards and is one of the best in the industry. From hazard reporting, incident reporting, personal protective equipment, and everything in between — our construction safety training covers every aspect of commercial construction. As soon as new standards are introduced, we incorporate them into our program.

Additionally, all UBG foremen are OSHA 30 trained (at the very minimum), while all project leads are OSHA 10 trained. We not only conduct year-round safety training via M2 safety, but we also incorporate those learnings into our company culture and daily habits so performing them is automatic.

We Offer Best-in-Class Training

At UBG, we’re always improving. The size and experience of our team is one of our company’s biggest differentiators. Because we specialize in some of the most complex commercial construction projects, extensive training is critical for ensuring we’re prepared for any scenario that could arise during the course of our work. It’s also essential for ensuring we remain the best at what we do.

We also have a natural curiosity and desire to learn. Therefore, we provide our teams with opportunities to enhance skills via offsite trainings, onsite seminars, recurring certifications, and more. By participating in frequent training and educational programs, as well as networking with other industry experts, we ensure we’re up to date on all the most recent industry changes.
