Since the Covid-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown, the construction and engineering sectors have faced significant challenges. However, with lockdown easing and construction sites reopening, things are starting to get back to ‘normal’. It is apparent however that business as usual is not going to happen overnight. March 2020 figures showed the highest monthly drop in construction of buildings (-11.8%) and civil engineering (-13.7%) ever recorded in Europe. The road ahead is likely to be long and hard.
When talking to our clients and wider network in the sector, there are some common themes and key questions being asked. These include:
- Our projects are still being cancelled or delayed.
- Our supply chain is looking unreliable.
