Construction firms striving to work in 2020 while preventing the spread of COVID-19 were faced with shutdowns, cautious re-openings and concerns that jobsites could be virus hotspots. New technologies and health protocols emerged to help them keep working safely, but issues quickly arose around employee privacy, contact tracing, and health record maintenance liabilities. In this webinar, San Francisco-based Peacock Construction, which has been picking its way through this minefield, will brief us about what they’ve learned. Also, representatives from Arup’s New York and Los Angeles offices will explain how they have found opportunity in the pandemic by repurposing a system for startup and handover of complex new facilities. Arup has expanded the system to help clients continuously assess their evolving challenges in a detailed and structured way, and ensure they are always ready for “the next normal,” whatever it turns out to be.
