Spain’s construction sites re-open

By Murray Pollok13 April 2020

Many of Spain’s construction sites started to re-open on Monday following a relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions that have been in place since 29 March.

The Spanish government has said that many ‘non-essential’ businesses, including manufacturing and construction, can resume work today. For the past two weeks only essential construction work has been permitted, on public works and infrastructure.

More general restrictions on business and personal movement remain in place.

FIEC, the European contractors federation, reported that its Spanish association member, CNC, has lobbied the Spanish government to enact legislation that will mitigate the impact of the health and economic crisis.

Meanwhile, FIEC has produced a very useful summary of the impact of Covid-19 on Europe’s construction industry. See here.
