Climate Risk Analysis for Construction Firm



Project Type:

Environmental & Regulatory


United Kingdom

Key Takeaways

Temperatures Reducing Worker Productivity

Rising temperatures are causing a decline in productivity, particularly in the southeastern part of the UK.

Safety Hazards Are Increasing

As temperatures rise, the likelihood of accidents increases for all workers.

Schedule Must Be Adapted

The reduction in productivity is resulting in longer schedules and increased costs to all firms.

About the Project

Construction Productivity Impacts from Heat

Climate challenges are significantly disrupting construction schedules. Extreme heat is lowering productivity because workers need longer and more frequent breaks to cope with the high temperatures. Additionally, extreme precipitation events are causing delays by temporarily closing construction sites due to standing water. These disruptions are financially straining the industry, as delays directly lead to increased costs.

Resilient Analytics served as the physical risk consultant for this project, tasked with analyzing potential increases in heat and precipitation events across the UK. The team also needed to translate these increases into cost projections for the construction company. This analysis was required at a county-level scale throughout the UK.

The team used client inputs to create risk and cost profiles for each county, considering various timelines and climate scenarios. These profiles were essential for internal strategic planning purposes.
