BUILDING A POST-COVID FUTURE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
Our recent research into the construction industry shows it has had it as tough as any other sector in 2020 – projects were delayed or cancelled, supply chains were unreliable, social distancing proved an on-going logistical and practical challenge and the lack of financial reserves many construction companies operate without has brought a sense in instability in an already unstable world.
