Local Construction Firms Deal with Fallout from Covid-19 Outbreak
Local construction businesses have been particularly hard hit by Governor Wolf’s “stay-at-home” order issued in response to the Covid-19 public health crisis.
Pennsylvania is one of only a few states that has ordered a stop to all active construction (with a few exceptions). Will Giesey, owner of Bellweather Design-Build, who also serves as President of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry for Chester and Delaware Counties, offered his insights on the shut down in a recent PhiladelphiaInquirer article. “It’s a balance of managing the risk ofinfection vs. the benefits to all the suppliers, trade partners, homeowners, all the stakeholders that are affected by this,” Giesey said in the article.
