The Numbers Behind Our New Normal

Worker hours decreased four percent since March first

We looked at activity within Procore to compare pre-outbreak logged hours vs. post-outbreak logged hours. This data helped form a narrative of how COVID-19 is impacting construction workers.

We used an aggregated data subset of logged hours as of February 2 - four weeks prior to any Shelter in Place order. The data shows worker hours have decreased 4% since the week of March 1st and held flat since the last SIP ordinances.

The Hours: State by State

When we look at worker hours week-over-week, a story emerges from the data. While each state is impacted differently, many states saw the largest reduction in early April.

Big and Small Impacts

The global pandemic means both big and small businesses are navigating uncharted waters. However, we wanted to find out who was most impacted by the reduction in worker hours.

The numbers reveal that small businesses saw a greater decline in worker hours than enterprise or mid-sized companies.

Pandemic Priorities

Defining who is most affected is only part of the story. Project type is another critical factor we examined to determine what infrastructure is still being built—and what isn't.

Infrastructure Industries

First, we looked at non-infrastructure projects vs. infrastructure projects. Our goal was to see if the specific portions of the industry were responding differently. We found that worker hours declined similarly, both hitting a low on the week of April 5 and rising for the following two weeks.

Healthcare projects have experienced significantly less activity reduction than other sectors, as well as less than other non-infrastructure projects.

Energy, on the other hand, appeared to have a large decline in late April.

Transportation has been consistently down more than most infrastructure sectors, but these declines appear to more closely follow the trajectory of non-infrastructure projects.
