How Will Covid-19 Affect The Construction Industry?
Social Distancing Will Be Normal
Social distancing on job sites will likely continue even after the coronavirus is less of a threat.
Even when the outbreak subsides, state and local officials will put measures in place that mitigate risk on construction sites.
Washington state, for example, is requiring that construction workers should keep 6 feet between each other.
Non-compliance could lead to a project shutdown.
Social distancing has also changed how contractors interact with project teams and with their customers.
Web-based tools will allow employees and customers to engage with the public about the impact and benefits of proposed projects from the safety of their homes.
In some areas of the country, building departments are implementing remote technology, like 360-degree photos and videos for inspections.
This will allow the project to be turned over on time while keeping everyone safe.
