COVID-19 is a disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus. 'CO' stands for corona, 'VI' for virus, and 'D' for disease. Formerly, this disease was referred to as '2019 novel coronavirus' or ‘'019-nCoV'. The COVID-19 virus is a new virus linked to the same family of viruses as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and some types of common cold.

COVID-19, social distancing, self-isolation, quarantine, and many more emerged as the new vocabularies of the entire world including engineering and construction industry. It has been long time since the last pandemic experienced by people. However, the current disease outbreak called Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) was announced, which hit all the nations of the world within a few months and was declared a pandemic in March 2020 by WHO. This outbreak disrupted businesses around the world, including built asset procurement and facility management. Many Countries is responding to this unprecedented situation by published new Site Operating Procedures. The effect of this pandemic in these extraordinary times posed both positive and negative impacts in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction, Owner and Operator industry. Its effect has brought about innovative and diverse use of technology which may change the course of construction even after the coronavirus. Effects of COVID-19 on the asset procurement is very much and potential opportunities for the construction industry may arise after covid-19. Architects, Building Engineers, Civil/Structural Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Construction / Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors have been affected by pandemic dramatically. New challenges and difficulties have risen in workflow and supply chain disruption, new policy issues, workers’ anxiety, and review of Corona Virus vs Force Majeure in standard forms of the construction contract. However, everyone has developed new way of working in procurement planning and agreed to have a virtual working environment and unique design considerations. It is also vital to develop additional contingency plans and a new working strategy in a minimized human contact situation caused by the pandemic.
