Can contractors work during Marin’s COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders? And if they can, should they?

Can contractors work during Marin’s COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders? And if they can, should they?

We wanted to take the opportunity to address a confusing subject that many Marin County residents have been grappling with. In this video, Mark Labourdette, CEO of Design-Build-Specialists will share some relevant information from well-known SF construction attorney, Dan McLennon, and others, that should clear up some of the confusion around what the recent COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place orders mean for construction work in Marin County, California.

You’ll also hear what our position is as a company. We will continue to monitor this situation closely and will make the necessary decisions as needed. Rest assured, those decisions will always be made with a community-first attitude.
We’re ready to help you design and remodel your home. Whether it be an ADU, JADU, kitchen, bathroom or whole house, during the shelter-in-place order, we can help you get started on your remodeling or building project drawings/plans now, so when things start up again, you’ll be ahead of the curve–and ready to build before everyone else!
