Construction industry organisation Build UK stated that its contractor members are continuing to reopen sites and reported this week that almost 70% of their sites are open in England and Wales.
The majority of sites are construction (81%) and infrastructure (78%).
Members that include housing in their portfolios confirmed that less than half of their housing sites are open for business, at 46%.
Productivity on construction and infrastructure sites is averaging at 67%.
London’s construction sites are achieving 56% output.
Build UK contractor members have furloughed an average of 30% of their staff.
The Construction Leadership Council is looking at ways to support the release of workers from furlough when the lockdown is lifted.
