Safety First! A Female-Led Construction Company President Weighs-In on New Protocols for Building

At the start of 2020 the Philadelphia region was in the midst of one of the biggest building booms in recent history – more than 2,100 permits issued for new construction in the city alone.

All that came to a screeching halt on March 23rd when Governor Tom Wolf ordered the shutdown of all non-essential businesses due to COVID-19. Just days ago, Governor Wolf lifted that order with guidelines to permit each city and municipality to “safely” implement their own set of protocols. “One thing is clear, no matter what state you’re in, it won’t be business as usual as we get back to work,” said Stacey Lott, President of LOTT Restaurant Construction.
