24th March 2020
While the government guidance issued 23rd March is specifically allowing construction works to carry on, we’ve taken the decision to temporarily close all our sites as of Friday 27th March. We’re doing this to protect our colleagues, contractors and the wider communities against the spread of COVID-19.
The minimum number of colleagues will be present on sites until the end of the week, carrying out essential and necessary work to ensure the safe and secure closure of our sites.
This work is being carried out in the safest manner possible in keeping with Health, Safety & Environment (HSE), Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) and Build UK guidelines. Our construction colleagues are observing social distancing rules and are fully committed to supporting the national effort to minimise the spread of COVID-19.
This temporary closure of our sites will be in place for 3 weeks in the first instance. We will review and update this information regularly.
