How Weather Impact Contractors
Weather conditions can tremendously affect the progress of contracting projects. For that reason, weather alerts are vital for the industry both in terms of budgeting and safety. However, many construction managers or contractors are still considering weather alert systems as a luxury.
The weather cannot be predicted with 100% accuracy, and conditions can change in seconds. There are also site-specific conditions that create microclimates, such as terrain features and surrounding constructions. Weather risks can only be managed effectively with the direct measurement of meteorological conditions.
