The Covid-19 pandemic has had an adverse effect on the commercial construction industry. New safety procedures and regulations set by local government and health officials have made it difficult for construction to proceed at the efficiency level it had prior to the pandemic. The San Francisco Bay Area was subject to strict protocols starting in March of 2020 that vastly limited the capability of construction companies to perform work. This case study looks into the ways in which a mid sized commercial general construction contractor from the San Francisco Bay Area was impacted by Covid-19 and the methods they used to handle the associated challenges. While initially being closed completely from a statewide shelter in place order, the company eventually was permitted to return to work, and was tasked with developing ways to mitigate the transmission of the virus on their job sites to keep employees safe and projects open. Additionally, the company had to make adjustments from a business standpoint to keep itself profitable in the present and the future. The company’s position in a region heavily impacted by the Covid-19 Pandemic makes them a good candidate for conducting a study in this area.
