Delays loom at construction sites

Mar 19, 2020

As the spread of coronavirus impacts the economy and daily life, construction projects will likewise feel the effects. Waller's Chris Dunn told Nashville Business Journal, "I definitely think delay is coming to projects. I just don’t think you’ll see [the] level of productivity we had before the virus became a national emergency."

Chris also noted that a slow in the economy "will cut into supplies of the materials needed to build buildings." In addition to limiting the number of workers at sites at a given time, contractors may have to search for alternative sources for resources and building supplies. 

"There's not the time there typically is when there's a change or substitution needed. Something that ordinarily would be accomplished in about a week, a decision needs to happen more in the space of a few hours," Dunn said. "Contractors need my clients to be very rapid in their decision-making. If not, their projects won't be as productive."
