The health, safety and well-being of our staff, supply-chain partners and project stakeholders will always remain our number one priority, and we continue to monitor Government and Public Health England’s advice and updates daily.
It has been fantastic to see the resilience of our active and furloughed employees, sub-contractors, material suppliers, clients and key stakeholders through these challenging times as we come together, adapt, and battle to overcome the impact of Coronavirus.
T&B’s successful strategy to reopen our sites from the beginning of May in accordance with the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures V4 has been overseen by our directors, senior management and HQSE teams, who have carried individual site audits, risk and hygiene assessments across all 24 of our ‘live’ projects keeping social distancing measures very much at the heart of operations across the business.
Our diligent delivery teams continue to work tirelessly to achieve a ‘COVID-19 Secure Site’ with certification displayed across our projects. Complementing the additional PPE provisions, sanitisation and hygiene stations, and CV-19 instructions.
We pride ourselves on our strong relationships, strict ‘pay on time’ policy supported by our financial stability and regular communication with supply-chain partners, and as a result have maintained a steady flow of materials, deliveries and services to our sites which has been managed with military precision by our Buying & Support Services team.
It’s interesting reviewing the points covered in the CLC’s Roadmap to Recovery outlining the construction industry’s post-coronavirus rescue plan, and the proposals aimed at safeguarding businesses as we all ‘feel the pinch’ – We totally support the three-phase plan to ‘Restart, Reset and Reinvent’.
T&B are proud to stand alongside our industry partners, big and small, as we all ‘play our part’, and we embrace the opportunity as one of the South-East of England’s leading building contractors to ‘transform the industry’.
There’s still plenty to do, however we continue to remain optimistic and are confident that the lessons, experiences and processes we’ve picked up along the way will positively shape our business and industry for the better.
In the meantime, we would like to express our continued gratitude to everyone who has helped us maintain our operations, and we wish everyone the very best of health – Stay safe!
