Given the shock the coronavirus has had on the economy, early on it appears the construction industry is absorbing the blow and adapting.
Many projects are continuing on schedule with work sites taking measures to prevent the spread of the disease. That’s according to Lance Calloway, northern district manager for AGC Washington, which represents general contractors. He spent the past few days speaking to local contractors in the area.
In the first few days the outbreak picked up steam, the key was adapting daily with the ever-changing situations and requirements to ensure construction companies protect their crews and to prevent the spread of the virus, Calloway said.
