The Construction Record Podcast: Episode 80 – Industry response to COVID-19

This week’s podcast features Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce national managing editor Vince Versace, digital media editor Warren Frey and staff writer Russell Hixson chatting together from their home offices via Microsoft Teams about the COVID-19 pandemic and how it continues to affect the Canadian construction industry. What projects are deemed essential and which aren’t, social distancing between workers on site and a myriad of other concerns are topics the industry wasn’t worrying about less than a month ago but are now vital questions to answer.

We also read comments from some of our listeners and readers on both sides of the debate on whether to keep worksites open, and Russell explains how major industrial projects in Alberta and British Columbia are handling the coronavirus challenge.
