The impact of COVID-19 on the construction sector

In this construction law webinar, the team at Blake Morgan discuss the impact COVID-19 is having on the construction sector.

 
Many businesses operating within the construction sector are facing significant challenges as productivity plummets. Additionally, the government messaging on whether to stay open or not has confused operators and workers.

Whilst the health and safety of workers is paramount, there is also a clear and understandable desire on the part of government to keep sites operating. Blake Morgan’s construction experts discussed this dilemma in the webinar and what might be the longer term implications for the industry.

Blake Morgan’s Construction panel discussed:

  • What do construction contracts say about COVID-19?
  • What is the government doing to help the construction sector?
  • What does this mean for the construction industry and its ability to survive?
