How Does Weather Impact Your Construction Project?
Extreme weather conditions can include heavy rains, severe wind, extreme heat, and major dust storms. Each of these can have major impacts on a construction project and make it unsuitable for construction workers and their equipment.
Extreme rain can create flooding conditions that make sitework dangerous, threatening a collapse of trench walls, pool walls, or basement walls. If the soil is extremely muddy, an excavation team may require a significant amount of extra time to stop their equipment to clear out the tracks, scrape mudflows, and clear silt fences, thus slowing site work and increasing labor costs.
Extreme wind can cause dangerous power lines to be downed, provoke flying debris, or make excavation equipment unstable.
Extreme heat or dust storms can make working conditions dangerous for an excavation team.
