Coming Out Of COVID-19 - An Update From Beech Developments
Beech Developments have now reopened all its building sites in both Conwy County and Caernarfon.
The Llandudno Junction based firm is currently operating at approx. 70% capacity as it gradually reintegrates its workforce following the Covid-19 restrictions.
Despite a shutdown of all sites during the first eight weeks of the pandemic, Oakwood, in Conwy, Cae’r Ysgol, Caernarfon, Llys Marl in Llandudno Junction and the brand new site, Bryn Heulog, in Deganwy have now resumed construction.
Matthew Gilmartin, MD at Beech Developments, said social distancing was manageable on all sites.
He added that the 20+-strong team who have returned to work at their head office at Anson House, Llandudno Junction, were still partly working from home on a flexible basis.
Mr Gilmartin said: “It’s been an unprecedented time for all concerned and we are glad the situation is steadily improving across the UK and around the world.
"During lockdown and moving forward, we have adapted, and will continue to adapt, our wider operation in response to government guidelines to ensure the safety of our staff, partners, homebuyers and the wider public.”
As part of the new measures, Beech Developments sites now have a series of hand washing stations, staggered work times for tradespeople and segregated circulation areas.
Mr Gilmartin added: “For our sales team, our remote working has meant we have adjusted in several ways - including virtual tours, virtual handovers and video appointments.
“We have been extremely fortunate that our staff, suppliers, contractors and our customers have approached this difficult situation with understanding and patience, and we want to thank them for this.
He added: “We look forward to opening our sites to full capacity and delivering new homes to our clients in the months to come.”
