SYNOPSIS

The coronavirus disease (Covid-19), caused by a novel coronavirus has brought upon unprecedented times across the world, since it was declared a global pandemic in March 2020. The pandemic has caused one of the worse economic crises since WWII. The Engineering industry was not spared by the impacts of Covid-19, and most businesses were forced to adapt in order to survive and step up to the challenge in order to rise above and ensure business continuity. Undeniably, the lessons learnt during this pandemic will change the way businesses operate, including the way we run businesses, draw up contract documents and carry out engineering design and construction activities. It is anticipated that in the near future, businesses within these industries will have to customize and tailor these processes to be flexible enough to cope with and overcome the negative impacts of the pandemic and other incidents as such.
