Urban Splash has delivered ten modular homes to Port Loop in Birmingham in just four working days this week, as the company continues to reopen its business
Having recommenced work at construction sites and its House by Urban Splash modular factory on 4 May, regeneration company Urban Splash has announced the reopening of other areas of its business.
In a safe and swift return to work, Urban Splash delivered ten modular homes to Port Loop in Birmingham. The House by Urban Splash homes were delivered to Port Loop before being craned into place onsite.
Urban Splash also announced that sales offices across the country, including Port Loop as well as New Islington in Manchester will reopen by appointment only this week.
Colleagues and visitors will adhere to strict social distancing and hygiene measures, with new signage in place, hand sanitising and the provision of PPE.
Getting the housing market moving
Chairman Tom Bloxham MBE, said: “There’s been much encouragement from the government this past week in getting the housing market moving.
“We’re excited to play our part in that, safely moving our business forward and, as we have done at Port Loop this week, creating new homes using modern methods of construction, which can be swiftly delivered to site.
“We have also taken the decision to reopen our sales offices; we have put measures in place to ensure that we can do this in compliance with the Covid-19 guidelines, and keep our colleagues and our customers safe.
“We will therefore be opening by appointment only; we look forward to welcoming customers back to our sites across the country in this way.”
Alongside the reopening of sales offices, customers can also continue to view homes via the Urban Splash virtual viewings platform which allows them to take tours of new homes from afar.
The company confirmed that non-site and non-sales colleagues will continue to work remotely from home, and that the five shareholding directors will continue to take a 30% reduction in pay during lockdown and while other colleagues remain on furlough.
