A poll of America’s AEC community, conducted by the Design-Build Institute of America from March 20-24th, provides a glimpse into an industry grappling with a constantly changing COVID-19 environment and the stress of often dueling demands.
Poll results show nearly half (45%) of design-build teams had already halted or delayed work on projects with 50% reporting staffing disruptions in the first weeks of the pandemic response. The answers provided by 309 respondents, while not scientific, show the balancing act of keeping personnel safe while meeting project expectations and fulfilling performance requirements in a constantly changing crisis environment.
Thank you to so many for taking the time to help DBIA understand the situation “on the ground” for our industry. We’ve also heard your call for additional information and resources to help guide our teams in the coming weeks and months.
We have added four new virtual training courses to allow our community to continue their certification journey, even during these challenging times.
New this week, we are also adding a free webinar series for our members hosted by some of DBIA’s most popular course instructors and conference presenters. Our first webinar is this Friday, March 27th. We’ll be providing more details later today but early-birds can get a head start to learn more and register here.
We hope you’ll join us at a webinar and training course plus take a moment to read our community’s responses to the COVID-19 crisis.
We’re in it for your success,
Lisa Washington, CAE
DBIA Executive Director/CEO
