The New Horizons Foundation has issued a new project study, Pandemics and Productivity: Quantifying the Impact, that addresses the productivity impact COVID-19 has had across the sheet metal, HVAC and mechanical industry. 

This webcast breaks down the report in easy-to-understand pieces and explain how contractors can use the findings to:

  • Quantifying the impacts for the purpose of seeking equitable compensation for lost productivity
  • Adequately price upcoming work that will take place under pandemic-driven work rules and conditions
  • Properly formulate financial projections that take into account stress on cash flow due to both decreases in productivity and the associated increases in overhead costs

The webcast also introduced a new change order calculator tool to assist members in determining the impact amounts.
