The health, safety and welfare of our colleagues, subcontractors, suppliers, customers and local communities are paramount to us.
Therefore, in compliance with Government guidance, we have implemented additional measures across our sites and offices, to ensure we protect and mitigate risk.
The advice provided by Alok Sharma MP, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, on 31 March 2020 to continue construction works in line with Site Operating Procedures was reconfirmed by the Prime Minister’s announcement of 10th May, and within further detailed guidance provided by HM Government on 11th May outlining how all places of work need to consider social distancing and working safely.
Throughout the COVID 19 pandemic all our projects have remained safe and open following the Site Operating Procedures and guidance set out by the Construction Leadership Council.
We have met the needs of our customers during these challenging times, deploying the skills, adaptability and “can-do” culture of our teams, to ensure projects continue safely and are delivered to our customers’ satisfaction.
We have supported our supply chain by jointly developing revised working practices, adopting best in class solutions that are now being delivered across the construction sector.
Our work winning teams have continued to design, price and tender work over the past few weeks, securing projects to ensure the ongoing success of the business.
“We are incredibly proud and especially grateful of the exceptional efforts the whole McLaren team has made over the past few weeks. From our IT department who have transformed our remote working infrastructure, to our Site Teams who despite many difficulties have worked tirelessly to ensure their projects have adapted and maintain safe operation at all times, whilst continuing to deliver excellent services to our customers.”
Various support departments, namely Preconstruction, Estimating, Accounts & SHEQ, have all gone beyond the call of duty over this difficult period and deserve a special thank you.
Our “Can-Do” culture has shone through over the past few weeks and is greatly appreciated by the Directors of McLaren.
McLaren Construction continues to review, follow and implement solutions to respond to evolving Government guidance, and will continue to work with Customers, Partners, Suppliers and Communities to ensure safe working whilst meeting industry demand.
