Weather Delays & Construction Contracts - Are You Prepared?


Did you know that since 1980, there have been 246 weather-related disasters in the U.S. that cost $1 billion or more? Tropical storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, wildfires and blizzards are striking the U.S. with increasing ferocity and can severely impact construction projects.Think back to 2017, which the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says was the costliest year ever for natural disasters. Over $300 billion in losses! A major reason: the triple pounding of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Sixteen separate events that year cost more than $1 billion each.
