Covid-19 Guidance Document

The global pandemic that is currently affecting the world has recently led the UK government to taking stringent measures to help the containment of the virus. The new measures affect almost all industries, including the construction sector.

Whilst the repercussions of the pandemic are differing in each country, resources, including people are becoming scarce, accessing supplies has also become a major challenge as the supply chain is currently seeing a delay in the delivery of building materials.
