The COVID-19 global pandemic has impacted businesses throughout the entire country. However, some businesses and activities may be less affected than others because state and local governments have provided certain exemptions to the multitude of stay-at-home orders that have been issued. Many of these orders, exempt construction services and activities because they are deemed “essential.” While construction has been classified as an essential industry here in Florida, there are still several potential consequences of COVID-19-related issues that can negatively impact a construction project. Being essential does not mean you are immune to delays and cost increases on a construction project and those who manage, build and finance such projects need to prepare accordingly.
- Proactively identify what may cause a delay before it impacts the project.
Labor shortages, supply chain issues and government restrictions are but a few of the types of delays that are likely to affect construction projects during this pandemic crisis.
