Building works during COVID-19
Our top priority is keeping residents and staff safe. As a small number of construction sites re-open in Camden, we are working to ensure building works are safe.
The Government has advised that the construction industry can work during COVID-19. Some contractors have decided to continue building works, which include some of our Community Investment Programme (CIP) sites.
We will work closely with contractors and support them to ensure the safety of their staff and the community.
What we are doing to minimise risk
The following measures will be put in place to manage risks associated with COVID-19:
- Working with contractors to ensure work practices have been revised to include the Government’s social distancing guidelines. This includes reducing the number of staff and deliveries on site
- Ensuring safety measures such as hand sanitiser and health guidance signs are installed across all building sites
- Regularly checking that contractors follow guidelines and reviewing their progress
Please note that these measures are subject to change if new government guidance is issued.
