The 23rd of March saw the British Government take the unprecedented step of announcing an enforced lockdown of all non-essential business due to the global coronavirus pandemic. As construction was counted as an essential business, the Board of Directors at Traditional Structures have taken a long hard look at the way it operates with a view on how to best look after the safety of its employees and the needs of its clients. The decision has been taken to keep the works open but operating in a Covid safe fashion, two meter social distancing at all times and implementing an increased cleaning regime of all facilities. The majority of the office staff have been provided with the facility to work from home, with only a skeleton staff remaining who are responsible for operational matters and the day to day functioning of the works. Traditional Structures Ltd will continue to operate in this manner until such time as it is safe to start bringing staff back into the premises.
April sees the works fabricating two external staircases for a project completed last year for Kier Construction at Wilmington Girls High School in Kent. They are also fabricating a project for a new client, Enterprise Heritage Ltd at Battenhall. This is the conversion of a former convent into a restaurant, parts of the original structure are listed so extra care is needed during the installation process.
Work will soon begin on two new projects for Kier Construction, West Witney School and Benson School are both located in Oxfordshire.
We are now completing the last few loads of material for Everards Brewery in Leicester. This completes the production hall phase of this contract with Kier Construction. February also sees fabrication start on a new job for Kier, Clearwater School in Gloucestershire.
Work continues on-site for Paveaways and Aston Villa Football Club at their Bodymoor Heath training facilities.
Happy New Year 2020!!!
