Manuscript Submission Deadline 26 September 2022
Manuscript Extension Submission Deadline 10 October 2022

A global pandemic, such as the COVID-19 phenomenon, is not just a major experience that only a few generations of mankind will witness. Rather, it has come with many stories, scholarly or otherwise, about the interconnectedness between health, design, construction, economics, politics, and psychology. From econometric modeling of the uncertainties occasioned by COVID-19, to how allied public health risks of the pandemic were communicated and managed, or how project contracts were re-engineered to cope with the science and politics of the pandemic, there are strong and sublime lessons that could be archived to shape future handling of pandemics.

What is your COVID-19 story? We invite original research articles that present real complex problems and solutions thereof, narrated with crisp clarity, regarding how COVID-19 situations had challenged project development processes and outcomes. This could be in the nature of theory building, experiential modeling or an empirical analysis of actions or processes which led to a particular innovation that assisted stakeholders to achieve their project outcomes. Rigor and additionality are important. In addition, we also encourage discussions around evidence that speaks to multidisciplinary interconnections between all branches of knowledge and, project development and outcomes. In particular, this themed issue is about how extant theories and practices performed in the face of COVID-19, how it shaped extant theories and practices in project development processes and outcomes, as well as the additionality of such pandemic-specific solutions to personal health and wellbeing including public health and project issues. All articles must present insights from lessons learnt from COVID-19 in relation to future projects.

Scholarly articles are invited from relevant areas, but not limited to the following:
• Risk/crisis communication
• Resource modeling
• Multidisciplinary implications of COVID-19 e.g Nexus between construction, psychology, sociology and medical sciences.
• Political economy of COVID-19 pandemic
• Productivity analysis
• Skill migration
• Automation
• Robotics
• Innovative site management protocols
• Causality analysis of project ecosystems
• Decision analysis around dispute management
• Workers' health and well-being
• Alternative accident management protocols
• Design and construction solutions to pandemic crisis
• Stakeholder management
• Alternative testing and measurement methods
• Major and large projects

Keywords: COVID 19, Construction Economics, Economic Boom/Depression, Public Health
