The City of Boston has suspended all construction activities in the city to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. The Associated General Contractors of America issued a statement in reaction to steps being taken to put in place arbitrary halts to construction activity in certain parts of the country saying it will do more harm than good for construction workers, community residents, and the economy.
The coronavirus pandemic has caused more than one out of four contractors to halt or delay work on current projects, according to a new survey released by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has postponed the AIA Conference on Architecture 2020, which was scheduled for May 14 to 16 in Los Angeles, California, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many other architectural events around the world have also been postponed or cancelled.
