In response the extremely fluid and every changing business landscape caused by the COVID-19 (Wuhan virus) pandemic and the ensuing economic shutdowns, CIRT instituted in conjunction with FMI a series of “Bi-Weekly” surveying instruments. The purpose of these questionnaires is to gather “real time” data which can form the basis of informed decision-making by fellow CIRT members to address the challenges faced in these times. Feedback is aggregated and confidential, but still provides clear trends and highlights approaches being pursued across the peer membership of CIRT. In addition to the “current issue” matters addressed by CIRT’s “Bi-Weekly” instruments (SEE page 3 of the report), FMI has joined the effort by updating the quarterly Outlook with vital economic and market indices with the latest information.
NOTE: CIRT members were questioned regarding observed changes in demand for design and construction services since March 1, 2020.
REMINDER: The second "Bi-Weekly" Survey is out now for response. Please be sure to provide your feedback to the current survey. Thank you.
