The epidemic situation has five outstanding problems after the construction industry resumes work
On February 26, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development issued the "Notice on Strengthening the Orderly Prevention and Control of New Coronary Pneumonia Epidemic Situation and Promoting Enterprise Resumption and Work", emphasizing the need to strengthen the prevention and control of outbreaks in the field of housing construction and municipal infrastructure engineering, and orderly promoting enterprise development Resume work.
Affected by the policy, the construction and recovery of construction labor service companies has improved, and the problems it has caused are more prominent. The survey report shows that the problems are mainly concentrated in the difficulty of resumption of labor acceptance, labor labor, capital turnover, supply chain security, and epidemic prevention material procurement. Five aspects are difficult.
The survey report shows that 75.50% of the companies believe that a green channel should be provided for resumption of inspection. After the application for reinstatement is filed, it still takes a long time to wait for inspection and acceptance due to the large number of projects declared. 57.96% of enterprises hope that the government and industry authorities can help solve the problem of employment difficulties for enterprises. Some companies report that the wages of labor workers rose more from the end of January to the end of March 2020, and the rate of increase after resuming work reached 30% to 50%. Work stoppages have increased costs for companies, and some companies have significantly reduced their cash inflows. 80.6% of companies suggested that government departments provide subsidies for work stoppages and epidemic prevention work.
56.72% of enterprises hope to open green transportation channels to speed up the turnover of logistics and people. 56.22% of enterprises hope that the government and industry authorities can help enterprises purchase anti-epidemic materials. According to the company, the current shortage of materials is mainly masks, electronic thermometers and so on.
Multi-party coordination and mutual assistance to promote transformation and development
Since the outbreak, construction companies have quickly and efficiently completed the construction of emergency hospitals such as Vulcan Mountain and Raytheon Mountain. The advantages of standardized, modularized, industrialized, and assembled new construction methods have been highlighted, allowing the world to see the speed of China ’s construction and become more determined. Confidence in technological innovation in China's construction industry.
In order to reduce the impact of the epidemic on the construction industry, the investigation report provided guidance for construction companies. During the epidemic period, the air defense cost of the epidemic caused by the enterprise for the construction project and the labor cost, building material cost, logistics cost, etc. caused by the epidemic are included in the project cost and calculated according to the actual cost and added; all projects under construction are faced with delays in construction period 1. The contract could not be performed in time, and the construction unit suffered direct losses during the shutdown.
The investigation report recommends the issuance of documents to clarify the starting and ending points of the extension of the construction period. What are the details of the loss of the shutdown, how to calculate and share it. Encourage construction units to strengthen mutual assistance with construction enterprises and general contracting enterprises, reasonably share losses, and negotiate to increase the proportion of project payments; encourage construction units to adopt e-mail, online communication and other information means to resolve project process settlement and completion settlement in a timely and sufficient amount Pay the outstanding due.
The survey report believes that it is necessary to vigorously promote the construction of industry supply chain platforms and establish a centralized procurement and financial service platform for the construction industry; incorporate epidemic prevention materials into the material supply chain to help companies solve the current urgent needs for resumption of production and epidemic prevention materials; for low-risk areas , Cancel the filing and approval, and speed up the construction; for medium and high-risk areas, on the premise of prevention and control, formulate and publish the necessary resumption conditions, simplify the processing process, implement one-stop processing; improve the social security system for construction industry workers, promote construction Property management of workers' living camps, to absorb the new generation of migrant workers for full employment.
Some people in the industry said that through the epidemic, we can see that the traditional production mode is highly dependent on manpower and materials, and the resumption of full production is greatly affected by traditional factors. The industry should use the epidemic as an opportunity to promote the transformation and upgrading of the construction industry, further promote prefabricated construction, promote the application of digital technology and intelligent construction technology in the construction industry, and accelerate the transformation and upgrading of the construction industry.
