Construction sites are exposed to the vagaries of the weather, and can be dangerous workplaces when surfaces are wet and slippery. Therefore Scandinavian construction sites can be closed down several weeks during wintertime due to frost and rain, which prolong the construction time. In addition to that, wet conditions can damage building materials, which is a challenge in rainy regions.
