Over the last couple of weeks, the Construction Sector Accord Steering Group, been working with the Government on support packages for the industry and to maintain business confidence during and after the COVID-19 disruption. The Governmen has announced the COVID-19 Response Plan for the Construction Sector. The Response Plan focuses on supporting the entire building and construction sector and ensuring the supply chain is ready to quickly restart on an accelerated work programme once restrictions are lifted.
The Response Plan has three key phases:
Phase 1: maintain – retain a viable sector during the shutdown
Phase 2: restart – ensure readiness to restart works and accelerate projects
Phase 3: transform – refocus on high performance
Driving the Response Plan’s work are 5 priorities
The Response Plan will continue to develop as many of the actions in it are still being worked through and because there is still uncertainty about how long the COVID-19 disruption will last.
