With the COVID pandemic now a central part of our lives, it affects a lot of industries and the construction industry is not exempt.

See how this pandemic in this infographic by Bridgit has changed the building industry, and whether those changes are here to stay.

Worldwide, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic has been felt. What began as an issue that felt like it was half a world away, rapidly became a global problem that changed the way business is done in various countries and industries significantly. No exception is the North American building industry. COVID and construction did not mix well, with general contractors now finding themselves in a place where they have the daunting task of balancing the safety of their team while attempting to retain a sense of normalcy, as the world is trying to manage the pandemic its way.

While the effects of construction during coronavirus can be felt at the national level, the essence of the effects depends , to a large degree, on the position of the respective general contractor and its projects. The direct effect on construction ranged from the slowdown of the goods, construction materials and manpower available to the suspension or termination of entire construction projects. While construction has picked up again in some states, in some countries the construction industry tends to fluctuate depending on whether or not construction projects are listed as "necessary."
