Construction Timesheet to Track and Record the Project
Construction work always involves a lot of workers with their own specified tasks to achieve one final target. Confusion in deciding the payments to the workers happens a lot since it is not an easy duty to control many people with different tasks and results. At this level of complexity, a tool to manage and to control the tasks also to track the work records of every employee is urgently needed to determine their final salary. A construction timesheet will be the best solution to help you in managing and tracking your construction project.
Features of Construction Timesheet
The way of managing and completing a construction timesheet will always be different. It has no universal way because each construction project has different workers, different systems, different policies, and different targets. For example, some company’s timesheet payroll system decides the workers’ payment by simply calculating the start and end time of the work, but some others applied detailed tasks accomplished during the period of the construction project to decide the payment.
Despite the different way of management and completion, there are some general features that you can find in every timesheet:
- Details of each worker
- The time period of the timesheet
- The working hours throughout the time period and the cost code
- Claimed additional cost/expenses
- Signature of the employees and supervisors
How to Create a Basic Construction Timesheet?
After knowing the general features of a construction sheet, follow the steps below to practice making the basic one!
- Write the date along with the company’s name
Specify the individual worker’s name (writing the full name is suggested to avoid mistake) and add the supervisor’s name if it is a summary timesheet of the daily work or summary of the whole project.
- Add a description of the project
Explain the details including short overview, purpose, and location of the project.
- Include the details of each worker
Add details about the tasks completed, start and end time, a total of working hours, and clarify the payment for each hour of every worker.
- Give space for signature
For accuracy and formality of the data, add some space for the signature of the workers and supervisors.
- Clarify the project’s terms and conditions
It is suggested to specify the payment requirements, mode of payment or anything important to be explained in order to avoid misunderstanding or any unwanted complains.
Types of the Timesheet

It consists of three tables. First table about the weekly start and end time of the worker (including lunch break time), working hours (overtime hours included), and working location. The second table shows expenses and the third one is a space for a total of working hours, dates, and signatures.
It contains two parts for the supervisor and the worker. The worker section shows all the worker’s detail while the supervisors show the reason for the worker’s absence, net cost code, and total working hours of each area.
This one is containing weekly data of workers in common details including the total payment in a week.
It is distinguished with the project date followed by the invoice address and contact address.
