Prospect Homes returns to work today

Construction teams started returning to work at housebuilder Prospect Homes today.

Site managers are preparing for the return of construction teams by taking action like installing additional safety signage.

Construction works will restart with a reduced workforce and additional safety measures from Wednesday.

The Liverpool-headquartered firm has sites across the North West including Rose Gardens and Greenfields in Clitheroe, The Ridings in Longridge and Hall Drive Park in Alsager.

Martin Caldwell, head of construction at Prospect Homes, said: “We closed our sites as a precautionary measure five weeks ago and have been working behind the scenes to ensure staff can make a safe return to work.

“The health and safety of our colleagues and customers is of utmost importance and in line with government and Construction Leadership Council (CLC) guidance we have introduced additional measures on site.

“For example, when construction teams return to work there will be restrictions on the number of people on site at any one time to enable social distancing. There will also be additional hand washing and sanitising stations, plus we will be carrying out cleaning more frequently.”
