Covid is impacting every industry globally right now. However, the building industry faces it’s own specific challenges. Covid-19 is halting the global construction industry with projects facing supply chain issues, a delay to planning and inspection timetables, and ever changing measures to ensure the health and safety of building workforces.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to have a significant impact on the construction industry and whilst the Government has been clear that construction work can continue, and sites are allowed remain open across the UK, there are other problems facing the developers of these sites.
Architects, Project Managers, Developers and Self-Build Enthusiasts are continuing to work with their suppliers to meet deadlines, however if you throw Brexit into the mix, materials coming from overseas have been delayed dramatically, meaning projects across the country are now months behind schedule.
Businesses should continue to follow the most up-to-date Government guidance on Working Safely during Coronavirus, which includes construction and other outdoor work, especially when working in other people’s homes.
