Covid-19 Pandemic: Impact and Lessons Learned in Construction Projects

Covid-19 Pandemic: Impact and Lessons Learned in Construction Projects


The impact of COVID-19 on construction has been significant since the first national lockdown in England in March 2020. Research has been conducted on these impacts but, understandably, during this fast moving and uncertain period, it has been limited and patchy, and has a heavy focus on the perspective of large construction firms, rather than an interest in small-medium sized firms (SMEs). Dr Shu-Ling Lu and Prof Martin Sexton from the University of Reading partnered with Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) to conduct research to help rebalance the research agenda and capture the best practice in the management of COVID-19 hazards in WBC-commissioned construction projects from the perspective of Tier 2 and Tier 3 (SME) construction firms. In this CPD Dr Lu and Prof Sexton are joined by Arnab Mukherjee, Head of Capital Projects at WBC, and Richard van Emmerik of Pelikaan Construction Ltd. The aim of this CPD is to offer practice-based insights into the impact of COVID-19 from the perspective of smaller Tier 2 and Tier 3 (SME) construction firms and the best practice that was developed to mitigate impacts on construction sites.
