Show homes reopen as housebuilding resumes at Stortford Fields estate
Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey is reopening its sales office and show homes at Stortford Fields on Friday (May 22).
The developer was the first in the UK to stop construction on sites and close sales centres in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown restrictions.
A phased return to construction has since started on sites across England and Wales, with staff and sub-contractors operating under revised health and safety practices and protocols.
For potential buyers, Perspex screens and marker guides have been installed for social distancing. Show home viewings will be unaccompanied and only one family at a time will be able to view each property.
Nikki Gibson, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey North Thames, said: "I want to assure the public that we are not prepared to compromise on health and safety, which is why we will be operating our Stortford Fields sales office on a strict appointment-only basis.
"I am confident that our revised health and safety protocols and guidelines mean that we can operate safely, and I know our sales executives are looking forward to safely welcoming customers to Stortford Fields once again.
"I also understand that some customers may still prefer not to visit us in person. Our sales team has been working remotely over the past few weeks, helping customers through each stage of the home-buying journey, and we will continue to offer remote appointments."
Stortford Fields is a development of more than 2,200 homes being built by Taylor Wimpey, Kier, Persimmon and Bovis Homes.
