Taylor Wimpey to reopen building sites

 

The homebuilder said it has made plans and processes so workers can safely start work again.

All Taylor Wimpey sites shut on 24 March in reaction to the virus outbreak and social distancing measures.

Construction has been deemed a permitted activity by the government but many sites have closed to protect workers and stop the virus spread.

In a statement Taylor Wimpey said: “We are now confident that we have clear plans and processes in place so we can safely start back on site in a phased way beginning on 4 May.

“Our first priority is always the health and safety of our customers, employees, subcontractors and suppliers and we support the measures put in place by the government to reduce the spread of the virus and safeguard the NHS and public health.”
