Governor Releases Guidance to Reopen Construction Industry

Governor Wolf's office has released guidance for reopening the construction industry on May 1. Links to the official release, as well as the guidance document, can be seen by clicking the links below.


The BIA is actively working to learn more about what the guidance means for Philadelphia and will notify members as soon as information on when and how construction can resume in the City is available.

In the meantime, BIA Members must learn how to operate safely and protect workers from the threat of COVID-19 on construction sites to be prepared. Owners and GCs have an obligation to ensure safe practices are carried out by their subcontractors on individual job sites, from site-to-site, and industry-wide.

Join us Wednesday, April 29 at 2 pm for a webinar on COVID-19 prevention and embracing a new job site culture to keep workers safe. This session is designed to equip members with the tools to address safety in a pandemic on an ACTIVE construction site.

Local legislators and L+I officials must be confident that we as an industry can be safe from COVID-19 on job sites across our City. This session will help all of you get there.
