Construction Snapshot 2020

Over the last few months, we have enjoyed a smooth transition from studio-based working to home working and gradually back again, with many of our teams now returning to our Newcastle and Vancouver studios.

During this time, contractors on our project sites around the UK have done an incredible job in maintaining progress with additional safety measures in place. As a result, we have many exciting schemes rapidly heading towards completion.
