Critical Project Restart Strategies: Best Practices to Help Construction Firms Restart Projects

Recorded On: 10/07/2020

With the goal of preventing COVID-19 transmission, adhere to quarantine rules, and deal with “stay at home” guidelines, many construction projects nationwide have been shuttered.  Now businesses must recognize the importance of project restart strategies that are imperative to ensure successful completion. In the same vein that the work came to a screeching halt, the restart of construction projects will have the same frenetic pace as the New York City Marathon when the “starting gun goes off.” Ideally, construction leaders would like to see a seamless transition to simply “continuing where they left off.” Realistically, even if the restart occurs just seven days after a work stoppage, activity would not resume normal function due to everything from supply chain disruptions to new hygiene-related work rules. Construction projects will resemble the trajectory of an ocean-going super tanker trying to turn rather than a high-performance sports car cornering on a dime.

In this webinar, construction leaders will learn the following:

  1. FMI’s “Restart Strategy” for projects
  2. The impact to the supply chain and conduct collaborative conversations to drive action and results
  3. Cash flow, billings, and costs to determine the fiscal results of COVID-19 on projects and work in progress
  4. Important considerations related to workforces, delays, protocols, and the ever-important “Project Exit Strategy”
