Safe Renovations During Covid19
We keep hearing over and over again that we are in a new world with Covid-19 affecting everything we do in life. This statement has never been truer for the more than 1.2 million* (statscan) construction professionals in Canada who are continuing to build and renovate from coast to coast. Now companies, like FairTradeWorks, a residential and commercial construction company in Vancouver, BC is not only worried about how to keep its workers safe through PPE and social distancing but how to ensure homeowner’s are also protected from the spread of the deadly corona virus.

Jim Perkins, Founder & President of FairTradeWorks says that “this pandemic has forced companies to really re-think every minute detail of the construction-renovation process including client consultations, jobsite traffic and PPE planning.” Perkins adds that FairTradeWorks has continued to complete projects through Covid-19 in a very strategic fashion and is “proud of the systems advancements that have come out of these challenging times”. In fact, he feels “this exercise will allow the industry as a whole to break free of many of the old ways and progress into a better, more efficient mindset.” When this entire surfaced and fears mounted, FairTradeWorks Management pulled together to stay up-to-date with Health Official mandates and started their planning processes. The work paid off because now as the rest of the world begins to open-up, Perkins says that his team is raring to go in a safe and efficient model.
FairTradeWorks clients undergoing renovations while living within a residence at this time can rest assured that trades visiting their homes daily will be wearing masks, utilize hand washing protocols, maintain social distancing and will be not sharing tools. FairTradeWorks Advisors will continue to be the one point of communication with clients either via phone, video conferencing or within a safe distance within the home.
While fear about the spread of Covid 19 has increased over the past few weeks of quarantine, so too has the urge for homeowners to improve their personal spaces. FairTradeWorks reports that their phones have been ringing steady since the pandemic began as owners have more time to spend in their homes and to dream of what they want it to look like. Perkins adds that, “it’s only natural that when people slow down and have the time to really explore their homes, that they think about what they want to do next and we’re happy to help.”
