Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to have a significant impact on businesses across the construction industry and Build UK is engaging with its membership and the wider industry to ensure we are responding to the concerns of the sector. Our priority remains to provide advice and guidance on construction-specific issues, with this dedicated webpage collating the key information for employers.

We are working as part of the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) Task Force to ensure effective communication between the industry and Government, and the CLC has published its Roadmap to Recovery which details an industry recovery plan for the construction sector.

There is unprecedented business support available from Government, and the CLC has produced Site Operating Procedures to ensure sites are implementing the Government’s social distancing requirements. Build UK is also working with UK Hospitality to help contractors working away from home find local accommodation.

Businesses should continue to follow the most up-to-date Government Guidance on construction working safely during coronavirus, which includes guidance for tradespeople and for the construction sector in Scotland. If you have any construction-specific queries and feedback on what is happening please email Build UK.
