Yorkshire construction company reopens sites across the UK
A Yorkshire construction company has announced that it is reopening its sites across the UK.
Keepmoat Homes has announced a return to construction on 46 sites across England under a phased programme that enables sites to be reopened over the next few weeks in a safe and controlled manner.
The company’s subsidiary, MCI, is reopening an additional 11 sites.
Keepmoat Homes closed all construction sites at the end of March in order to be sure of the health, safety and wellbeing of its customers, employees and contractors.
Sites reopening will strictly follow guidance on social distancing issued by the Construction Leadership Council and endorsed by the government.
Chief executive officer, Tim Beale, commented: “The government recognises the construction industry as a cornerstone of the UK economy and a major employer.
“It knows we have the skills and procedures to manage safety on site and trusts us to be in the vanguard of the return to work.”
“Despite the pressure to continue meeting local and national housing need, we have had overwhelming support from our local authority and housing association partners in prioritising the safety of our colleagues.”
“The needs of first time buyers for an affordable first step on the housing ladder are unchanged.
“We have seen continuing demand for new homes and are ensuring that homes are available to buy as consumer confidence returns.”
