Developing a Back to Work Plan Post COVID-19 – Steps to Consider
May 15, 2020
With restrictions beginning to be lifted to allow construction projects to re-commence work it is of paramount importance that all contracting parties assess the current condition and status of their respective projects and develop a plan for how best to restart work and recover lost time, to the extent possible. A well thought out plan for performance is essential for this to occur as it will provide the owner and contractor the ability to measure progress and evaluate, in real time, whether modifications to the initial project schedule are successful or require re-evaluation. RMC has briefly outlined the steps that should be considered to develop this back-to-work plan and preserve a project record of mitigation efforts attempted to minimize the impacts caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Applying these proper dispute avoidance, documentation and resolution principles will also place the owner and contractor in a position to fairly address the compensation that the contractor may be contractually entitled to recover from the ill-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
