Several build sites in downtown Kelowna are still in full swing.
This includes work sites on Richter and Ellis streets, led by Edgecombe Builders and Kerkhoff Construction.
In response to the current COVID-19 outbreak, the British Columbia Construction Association (BCCA) has launched a “virtual hotline” to support the province’s construction sector.
The hotline will gather the observations, questions and requests for guidance from the construction industry, which includes trade and general contractors, project owners, tradespeople, manufacturers and suppliers and other service providers.
BCCA said in a release they’re asking the province to introduce deferred property and payroll tax payments, and review timelines for public sector construction projects.
Currently, there have been no mentions of suspending construction projects.
Black Press Media reached out to Edgecombe Builders and Kerkhoff Construction. There was no response from either firm before publication.
