Redrow in phased return of construction sites
Redrow is the latest homebuilder to announce a phased reopening of constructions sites, after closing to help prevent spreading the coronavirus.


The builder said the government has “made it clear they would like to see constructions sites operating provided they can do so safely” and with social distancing in place.

As a result, Redrow said it plans a phased return to construction on 18 May with physical measures and distancing.

The builder closed all its sites on 27 March, as the UK went into lockdown.

Since then, net Redrow reservations have been running at very low levels.

The group said a change in the government’s ongoing advice on postponing home moves will be important factor in returning to normal trading conditions.

Over the past week, builders including Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey have confirmed they will reopen sites in the coming weeks.

Redrow said it has developed an e-learning module for all employees, as well as enhanced signage and PPE.

In the trading update, the group added that it has a strong balance sheet, generating £62m from legal completions in April alone.

John Tutte, Redrow executive chairman, said: “The safety and welfare of our workforce and customers is our main priority. I am grateful to my colleagues and our supply chain partners for the exceptional work they continue to undertake to ensure we can make a measured, responsible and safe return to work next month.”
