This includes budget, time frame, designing, and even constructability with better finishing. In today’s time, the scope of video conferencing is more while the visits will be less but the best part would be the operation will remain unaffected.
In the whole process of planning, it is important to make sure the new environment is created on the site. This would include scheduling the adjustment as and when needed so that social distancing is well maintained. To make sure that workers are at least 6 feet apart while the construction would happen in much-staggered shifts while keeping the workers low on the site. Vene if this extends the timeline, that would be better as compared to regular renovation projects which would need additional shifts to be done.
This is another important consideration to not ignore. It is important to pay extra attention while the budget needs to be well applied so that disinfecting and the overall cleaning process should be heightened too. Along with it, other protection sources such as hand sanitizer and makes for trade partners should be maintained.
