Construction site planning and pre-start preparations commence

The Scottish Government has updated its construction sector guidance to move to Phase 1 of its route map for moving out of lockdown, allowing the construction industry to proceed with planning and pre-start preparations.

New operating procedures in line with Construction Scotland’s guidance have been developed and as a result, pre-start preparations have commenced. This involves undertaking works to site offices and welfare facilities to prepare for re-starting works.

A decision to move to the next phase of the plan will only be permitted following consultation with the Scottish Government to ensure it is safe to do so and in line with public health advice.

The health and safety of our workforce and the communities in which we operate remains our top priority.
