Site Overheads

Site overheads in the construction industry refer to the costs incurred on a project site that are not directly tied to specific construction activities but are necessary for the operation and management of the project. These overheads include expenses such as site security, temporary facilities (e.g., site offices, storage), utilities for the site, and salaries of site management staff. Unlike direct costs or general overheads, site overheads are project-specific and vary depending on the project’s duration, size, and complexity. Effective management of site overheads is crucial for maintaining project profitability and efficiency.
