Dear Clients, Collaborators, Suppliers and Friends,
The health and safety of our community is paramount. Although we have been doing all that we can to assist in the containment of Covid-19, we believe that now is the time to take more definitive steps. With an absence of specific government guidance for the construction and manufacturing industry, we at the Barr Group believe that we must play our part in setting the right example - to prioritise the NHS and fulfil our duty to society.
As such, the decision has been taken that from Friday 27th March at 4:30pm all of our UK construction sites and workshops will be temporarily closed until further notice.
We understand that this decision will impact on the schedule of current construction works and we thank our clients and collaborators for the tremendous understanding and solidarity they have shown. Key members of the team will remain on hand to respond to all enquiries and appointments remotely.
Rest assured that we are also working hard to ensure our staff, both employed and subcontracted, are fully supported at this time.
One of the Barr Group’s core values has always been ‘Giving Back’ to the community which has always supported us. In the current circumstances we can only do this by prioritising the safety and well being of every person whose worlds we touch and right now this has to be demonstrated by staying away.
In the meantime we remain committed to every current and future contract and we look forward to recommencing our work with redoubled vigour and enthusiasm as soon as the safety of our community permits.
The Barr Group Management Team
