Taylor Wimpey hopes to open Scottish sales centres next month
Taylor Wimpey is making preparations for a “sensible and well-managed” return to construction activities in Scotland following a positive rise in customer interest south of the border.
In a business update to investors, the group said the sites would get up and running in line with Scottish Government guidance.
Taylor Wimpey said that it was early days after the reopening of its sales centres in England, but the signs were positive.
Pending approval, the housebuilder hopes to resume trading from its sales centres in Scotland and Wales by early July.
In its statement to investors, Taylor Wimpey said: “Our first priority remains the health and safety of our customers, employees, subcontractors and wider communities, and we are extremely proud of the way our teams have adapted to the new ways of working.
“Our new site protocols have been implemented successfully and the new Taylor Wimpey COVID-19 code of conduct continues to receive strong support from our employees and subcontractors.
“These measures include detailed signage, phased sign-in times, strict protocols for social distancing, modification of welfare facilities and additional customised Taylor Wimpey PPE.”
It added: “Customer service is a key priority and we continue to keep our customers regularly updated on our actions to support them. We have written to all customers to extend our two-year warranty free of charge for all customers in warranty, at any point in the lockdown, by two months in England and Wales, and three months in Scotland, reflecting the length of the effective lockdown of construction.”
