Posted on April 15, 2020
If you are in the construction industry and are having issues related to COVID-19, there are many resources that may help you move forward. From sites that provide information to others that simplify state at home orders, these sites have been instrumental in helping Fund Control understand the changing atmosphere.
The Associated General Contractors of America
There are a variety of trade associations in the state and throughout the country that are stepping up to help with a variety of needs. The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) have resources exclusive to their members and resources that are publicly available, covering everything from tax implications to risk management information.
The Associated Builders and Contractors
You will find lots of resources for both members and chapter operations from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). They offer internal and external resources and a lot of information that is generally useful to many players in the construction industry.
The National Electricals Contractors Association
Anyone who is an electrician or electrical contractor can find a lot of great resources by visiting the website of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA). They also have information that can be helpful to anyone in the construction industry as they prepare for this pandemic and find unique ways to operate through it.
American Subcontractors Association
Those who are working as subcontractors may not be clear on what their options are for SBA loans, exposure and response plans, or just general topics related to their place in the COIVD-19 pandemic. For them, the American Subcontractors Association (ASA) may be a very helpful resource.
The National Law Review
If your questions or needs are related to the legal industry, the National Law Review has articles about construction law, coronavirus, and many other issues that may affect construction companies at this time. They also have information on potential ways to get out of contracts for projects that have been impacted by COVID-19.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Of course, for any company and all individuals, the first step should be to check what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have to say. They are constantly updating the best options for social distancing, the right way to use PPE, how to clean and disinfect correctly, and other topics that impact safety protocols at this time.
You would be hard-pressed to find any company or individual who is going through life with “business as usual” for them. Hopefully these resources can help your company get back on track while staying safe. Remember that Fund Control is here to help with a truly innovative fund control option.
