Construction projects are often tightly run with a number of subcontractors performing different tasks. Unforeseen delays due to severe weather conditions such as heavy rain, high winds, lightning and storm activities can cost the construction industry millions of dollars. Weather Intelligence has developed a suite of products that help the Construction Industry manage their weather-related risks and avoid costly disruptions and unforeseen delays.
Challenges for the Construction Industry
Severe and unexpected weather events like heavy rain, high winds, lightning and storm activities interrupt operations costing millions of dollars
Neighboring communities who are affected by the dust and noise pollution generated by the operation may enforce stringent regulatory requirements to reduce impacts.
Safety must be maintained at all times when on construction sites, and can be quickly threatened by an unexpected storm or working in hot conditions. Specific forecasts ensure crews are scheduled during safe conditions.
Good weather is essential for key construction activities, including earthworks, pouring concrete and crane operation. Incorrect scheduling of these activities can hinder quality or cause costly delays.
