As a family business, we always put our people first. And the COVID-19 pandemic is no different.
In this terrible situation that we find ourselves in, it is our priority to protect the health, safety, and wellbeing of our employees, their families, our clients, and the public to minimise the risk of spreading infection.
At the start of the outbreak, we had to make some difficult but necessary decisions.
We closed our sites and offices to keep our people safe. With our business operations temporarily frozen we had to furlough many of our colleagues.
Behind the scenes, we were busy planning and preparing to ramp-up operations again with revised safety measures in place, whilst taking onboard guidance from the Government, Public Health England and the National Federation of Demolition Contractors. Revised safety measures include updated method statements, procedures, social distancing, extra welfare, single-use transport to site, and extra PPE.
We initially made a steady start back to work to ensure we settled into the ‘new normal’. By doing so, we could ensure a safe, socially distant working environment whilst still delivering quality projects for our valued clients.
Where possible, some of our office-based colleagues are working from home.
The entire Cawarden team has pulled together during this difficult time. We’ve stayed connected through the wonders of technology, shown resilience, adaptability, and an uncompromised team spirit.
New ideas continue to be brought to the table to keep health, safety and wellbeing at the fore as we continue to navigate our way through the Coronavirus pandemic.
