Wild Weather An Unavoidable Risk In Construction

Weather is one of the most uncontrollable risks for construction sites. Heavy downfalls and gale force winds like those that struck last week are an unfortunate occurrence.

The wild weather that hit the east coast of Australia caused some considerable setbacks for construction sites. Interpod was lucky to avoid any damage to our Central Coast factories and wish a fast recovery for those affected. The month following unforeseen weather delays is when the true cost of a storm comes to light – new materials, a larger workforce and replacement equipment could become necessary.

Offsite prefabrication has proven to be one of the few ways that the construction industry can mitigate the impact of weather on projects. The controlled factory conditions that Interpod manufacture our bathrooms under are one of the biggest benefits for our clients as they are able to avoid costly delays on the bathroom components of their projects.
