The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many aspects of the construction industry and one of the main aspects that has been affected is productivity. Monitoring productivity on a job is important because it allows us to identify areas that take up the most time and thus gives us the opportunity to allocate resources effectively. Due to safety regulations and new protocols being put in place, the productivity levels on every job has changed. Whether its out in the field or in the office, workplace productivity has certainly been affected by COVID-19. This case study focuses on how the pandemic has affected productivity on the project management side of a job. It was determined that COVID-19 had an overall negative effect on the productivity of multiple jobs. This includes setbacks related to the schedule and project funding. These conclusions were determined after conducting semi-structured interviews with 10 project engineers/managers at Swinerton Builders. The purpose of this case study is to inform construction companies on how their project’s productivity levels have been affected by COVID-19. This is to identify necessary adjustments these companies will have to make in order to improve the productivity on their projects.
