How to Fight the Coronavirus and your business concerns while Sitting at Home – Complimentary Webinar!

Do you know what is needed to ensure your company gets stable through this pandemic?

Staying at home and practicing “Social Distancing” is socially responsible and might be your personal contribution to mitigate the proliferation of the COVID-19. However, sudden shutdowns of construction sites as we have seen in Boston and San Francisco, as well as close downs of entire businesses have or will leave also you and your business with a lot of unplanned work behind. This work will come at you sooner rather than later once the situation has calmed down and life turns back to normal. Now is the time to get your business ready and plan for the necessary steps following the coronavirus pandemic.

The jobs will fall behind and you will most likely be faced with:

  • Trade stacking and productivity losses
  • Shortage of skilled labor will be aggravated
  • Supply shortage and material delays
  • Increasing project cost that the GCs/customers are not expecting/able to pay
