While some construction projects have been moderately impacted, many others have been completely halted as part of the efforts to thwart the spread of COVID-19. Now as the U.S. begins the process of re-opening, construction owners and contractors are considering how to quickly and effectively kick projects back into gear.

The KPMG restart guide and checklist for construction owners provides a reference point to help organizations remobilize construction projects safely, efficiently and in a cost effective manner.

The guide includes useful tools such as a summary of recommended activities by phase, a restart quick-reference checklist, and a sample implementation schedule.

The full guide provides more details on:

  • How to reprioritize project activities by phase, and identify critical activities prior to fully ramping up construction activities
  • Techniques to develop, train and communicate new health & safety protocols and procedures to project team, contractor and subcontractor personnel
  • How to identify, quantify and address/resolve project impacts with suppliers without slowing project activities
  • Ways to prepare project teams and stakeholders for continued disruption and risks
  • What tools are available to quantify and assess impacts to project costs, schedules and risk profiles
