1. What worked and what didn't work in my construction business model?
Maybe you have many clients who would prefer to have meetings online rather than face-to-face. There may be perfectly good reasons to continue with a revised business model.
2. Do I need to make changes to my construction supply chain?

Review how the various components in your supply chain reacted to the pandemic and whether they helped your business or hurt it.
Your supply chain has a massive impact on your business. Trusting your suppliers and knowing you can work with them will allow you to feel secure in the future.
3. How has my construction staff adapted?
Your staff has faced a great deal of stress and uncertainty during COVID-19, due to professional and personal concerns. Team members may have had to transition to new ways of working—at home, on a new schedule, or with new policies and procedures in place.
One benefit of having employees work from home more days a week is that such opportunities for working remotely can boost employee morale while saving you money. Now that you've invested in the technology to allow staff to work from home, is it worth it to enable this scenario to continue, even a few days a week?
In addition to looking at your construction business, take a
look at your customers and clients. Were they supportive of your
business during this time? Did they turn elsewhere? Did they
respect the changes you made to your business or the policies you
put in place?
Each of the above questions—about your business model, your supply chain, your staff, and your clients—will help you make informed decisions about the best way to run your business as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
