Construction in Arizona continues during COVID-19 spread, but with health precautions
Construction has been deemed as essential labor during the social-distancing period mandated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite continuing activity on building projects, some construction companies report the situation is still causing drops in revenue that might last for months. But Fulton Schools Professor Edd Gibson, a construction management expert, says the construction industry’s characteristic resilience should enable business to bounce back after the crises subsides. While the building process is being slowed by social distancing, Gibson says projects appear to be getting done safely and at good pace.
