On March 27, 2020, tED magazine reported on a website created by ConstructConnect, a construction software management company that helps contractors streamline pre-construction efforts and create accurate project information. In the story last March, tED reported the Associated General Contractors of America teamed with ConstructConnect to list all of the delayed or cancelled construction projects in the United States and Canada. That number jumped in March as the initial impact of COVID-19 hit the construction industry and our supply chain.
A little more than one month later, on April 30, 2020, the number of delayed or cancelled projects has gone up by more than 2,600 jobs.
As we first reported in March, the number of delayed projects was 1,488, with most of the delays in Pennsylvania after Governor Tom Wolf placed strong restrictions on businesses, including construction. In the 33 days since our initial report, the number of delayed projects has jumped to 4,115.
Not surprisingly, New York state has the more delayed construction projects than any other state with 387. ConstructConnect updates the data every day, and the website showed New York’s number of delayed projects increased by 6 from Wednesday, April 29 to Thursday, April 30. California has the second-most delayed projects with 344, followed by Texas, Florida, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina.
You can keep track of daily updates to delayed construction projects by going to the ConstructConnect website.
