Higgins to reopen construction sites
The developer Higgins will reopen the majority of its sites from Monday 4 May in accordance of government guidelines.
The firm said it has been working closely with clients and its supply chain to understand the challenges they face to get back on site.
Steve Leakey, managing director of Higgins, said: “Health and Safety remains our top priority and we have developed strict protocols which allow a graduated start on site for most of our projects whilst ensuring social distancing measures are adhered to.
“We will be utilising meetings rooms as additional welfare facilities and encouraging staff to travel by car rather than on public transport. Increased cleaning and hygiene facilities have been introduced across all sites as well as video inductions for staff which will minimise social interaction.”
Higgins’ head office will remain closed but the majority of office based staff and directors will continue to work from home but will be contactable as usual.
It’s after sales team will be responding to emergency call out works only unless other arrangements have been made.
The contractor and developer is based in the South East.
