The initial shocks of the last several weeks are abating, as the construction industry is settling into a “new normal” of enhanced site safety measures, disrupted supply chains, and greater uncertainty generally. While the pandemic has certainly elevated everyone’s stress level, our present circumstances are forcing the industry to make quick adaptations as it rethinks attitudes and practices that were prevalent mere weeks ago. It may also contain the seeds for the kind of innovation for which the industry is renowned.

We have assembled a panel of leading Canadian construction representatives who have been on the front lines of the industry’s responses to the ongoing challenges posed by the pandemic. We will be asking them to comment on events of the last several weeks, how those have impacted their members and how they have responded, and also to report on the positive outcomes they are seeing.

This event will be held as a moderated webinar on Thursday, May 14, 2020, from 3 pm to 4:30 pm (ET), including Q&A. There is no charge. We strongly encourage you to register for what promises to be an informative and helpful session on how the industry is doing as it adapts to a challenge of historical significance.

Agenda:
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm (ET) | Panel Discussion
4:00 pm – 4:30 pm (ET) | Q&A
