The COVID-19 pandemic is one of those once-in-a-generation events which challenges our assumption that we understand all the risks for construction projects. The last comparable event was the petrol blockade of 2000 and it is not clear what impact Brexit may yet have. When extension / compensation events, loss and expense or ‘force majeure’ are discussed, we have traditionally tended to use examples which are both extreme and hopefully unlikely – World War III, aliens landing, a dirty bomb. The pandemic is right here, right now and is not going away any time soon.

Karen Kirkham, Head of Construction, in our commercial real estate team, discusses this in an article for Infrastructure Intelligence.
