Larkfleet Homes restarts construction in line with government guidelines

Bourne-based housebuilder Larkfleet Homes has reopened some of its construction sites and show homes across Lincolnshire and Rutland after reviewing its safety measures in line with the latest government advice.

Larkfleet Homes has developed a new set of site protocols for staff, contractors and suppliers to ensure its construction sites and sales suites are safe and comply with strict social distancing rules.

Additionally, the home builder will provide hand sanitiser at site booking in points, introduce staggered start and finish times between contractors, as well as staggered break times.

The sites that Larkfleet Homes has reopened across Lincolnshire and Rutland include Deeping Meadow in Market Deeping – with the site and sales office operating since May 11.

Work resumed on June 1 at Farriers Reach in Oakham, Pinchbeck Fields near Spalding, Boston Gate in Boston and Nettleham Chase near Nettleham. The sales offices at these developments also reopened on June 1.

Larkfleet Homes is trialling the reopening of some show homes, at Deeping Meadows and Whittlesey Green. Perspex screens will be installed to protect both staff and visitors, and social distancing requirements will be maintained at all times.

Karl Hick, the chief executive of Larkfleet Homes, said: “To ensure the safety of our staff, contactors and potential home buyers, we are insisting that all construction site workers must sign and accept our Covid Secure health and safety guidelines. Our new guidelines are fully compliant with government public health guidance and will be strictly enforced by site managers.

“We have continued to receive enquiries throughout the lockdown and believe it is vital to get construction sites working again. This is not only to satisfy pent-up demand, but to help kickstart the UK economy as a whole.”
