Construction Halt



“Leading London developer Galliard Homes has today made the decision to close all the company’s building/construction sites across London with immediate effect; with the sole exception of important safety works.

This decision will help to ensure the health and safety of the company’s on site staff, and will also remove some 2,500 Galliard construction workers from the London Transport Network, helping to free up public transport for NHS staff and other key workers who Galliard believe it is essential have priority and safe travel conditions at this critical time.

Galliard highlight that the Company remains “open for business”. Galliard’s sales function remains operational and the business is continuing to market some 1,000 homes across the capital, with Galliard sales team, working from home, using video and other technology to market homes remotely to buyers.

Galliard, which employs over 3,000 people (directly and contractors), can confirm that all the company’s 60 sales and marketing staff are working remotely from home, as are the rest of the group’s planning, personnel, finance and administrative teams who are normally based at the company’s headoffice.

Stephen Conway, Executive Chairman of Galliard says: “Our business was born in London and we are committed to the capital, but during these unprecedented times the safety of our construction staff, families and our London communities is paramount. and we believe that by taking our staff out of daily commuting we will help to free up London’s Transport Network for the NHS and key workers who are protecting sick and vulnerable people across the capital. Supporting the NHS and protecting lives is the sole priority at present, our teams can return to helping build our great capital when this crisis abates.”

Don ‘O Sullivan, Chief Executive of Galliard says: “Despite the confusing and conflicting messages from Central Government and the London Mayor’s office; we are a London business and we are taking this action in support of our world class superheroes in the NHS, as they take on the fight of their lives to keep us safe.  This should be the priority for all of us today.”
