Construction company Speller Metcalfe has recommenced work on the new Cyber Quarter – Midlands Centre for Cyber Security following the easing of coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
Sites across the UK are gradually re-opening following the issuing of guidance from the Government for a number of sectors, including construction.
The £9m centre on Skylon Park, Hereford Enterprise Zone, is a joint venture between the University of Wolverhampton and Herefordshire Council, and part-funded by the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership and European Regional Development Fund.
It is due to open later this year.
To adhere to the government guidance Speller Metcalfe have implemented the following social distance rules on site:
1. Site operatives on site have been reduced by approximately 50% to help meet 2m social distancing rules.
2. Staff have been asked to drive individually to site and not share vans.
3. The turnstile on site has been disabled and one way access and egress systems set up in an out of the site working area.
4. A one way system is operating using the two staircases inside the building.
The Government has published guidance to support businesses to reopen and for workers to feel confident, safe and empowered to return to work.
