Tokyo Dispute Resolution & Crisis Management Newsletter – January 2021 - Construction Projects: Disrupting the Disruptor

King & Spalding

Once a remote health issue in China, coronavirus (“COVID-19”) remains today - as we enter the new year of 2021 - not only a global health concern but also a global economic disruptor that will impact nearly every industry. The construction industry is no exception, and owners and contractors will need to continue to evaluate and take proactive measures with respect to the physical and economic risks that coronavirus poses for their projects as we move forward.

Many will have taken steps to mitigate the disruptions caused by COVID-19 during the course of 2020. As previously addressed, for both owners and contractors, the virus presents significant risks to critical aspects of the project, including the health of project personnel, potential supply chain disruptions, and the increased potential of cost impacts and schedule delays, regardless of the contractual responsibility for infectious diseases.
