Our sites are re-opening.
We are happy to be re-opening our sites from this week.
All of our building sites, show homes and Customer Lounges have been closed since 27th March in line with government advice following the outbreak of COVID-19. Following the Prime Minister's update on Sunday 10th May, we are pleased to be carefully reopening our sites.
As part of the re-opening procedures, all operations will be subject to a series of new protocols in order to comply with the requirements for safe working and strict social distancing.
Staff will be required to wear protective equipment, including face masks, eyewear and gloves. Workers will also always be expected to maintain a minimum two-metre distance at all times.
Additional hygiene and washing facilities are being installed at all sites, there will be staggered break times throughout the day and extra, temporary buildings will be put up where necessary.
All deliveries will be non-contact with staff using digital signatures and maintaining safe social distancing, visits to sites by external personnel will be kept to a minimum with only essential workers being admitted.
Hand sanitising will be obligatory on entering and exiting any office or site buildings and all areas will undergo a deep clean prior to re-opening.
“We have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely, amending our practices and adhering to the latest government advice. The health, wellbeing and safety of our staff, contractors and clients is our highest priority however, we believe that it is now safe to return to site to complete homes for our customers,” said our Managing Director, Graham Flint.
“We have put in place a rigorous new system of safeguards and regulations to ensure we are able to re-open in accordance with government advice,”
“Staff will also undergo new inductions to familiarise themselves with the strict new regime. We are obviously pleased the business is now able to re-open, however we are all very clear of the need for extra vigilance and care as the risks associated with COVID-19 remain high,” he added.
Our show homes and Customer Lounges remain closed for the time being, but our Sales and Customer Care teams are still available to help remotely. Find out more.
