In March, to support countrywide efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, Telford Homes took the precautionary step of temporarily closing all operational sites and sales suites. This closure was a voluntary decision, with UK government advising that work on construction sites was permitted. On the 4 May, Telford began a phased and progressive re-opening of several construction sites following the implementation of new working practices based on the Construction Leadership Council’s new Site Operating Procedures.
The Wallis Road, Stone Studios team have now returned to site, with a number of robust protective measures in place to help keep customers, employees, subcontractors and the community safe.
Concrete construction works Concrete frame construction to block A is complete. Perimeter scaffolding for the construction for the block A brickwork façade is ongoing.
Concrete frame construction works from basement level to roof level for blocks B, C, D and E is ongoing, and we anticipate that these works will be ongoing until the end of June 2020. The perimeter scaffolding for construction works to blocks B, C, D and E for the brickwork façade will be erected shortly. We anticipate that this will happen in around four weeks’ time.
