Covid-19 UPDATE - 13th May

Due to the unprecedented situation with the Coronavirus outbreak and recent Government guidelines our business practices have changed to ensure the health and safety of our staff and also our customers. Please see updates below:

Update 13/05/2020

Following the latest Government announcement and guidelines, we have made the decision to increase our shipping capacity in our warehouse to ensure that we can supply product to our contractors. This week we have observed a significant increase in the number of projects returning to site and new project start dates being set. We anticipate that this change will continue over the next coming weeks and as a result are putting plans in place to meet the increase in demand.


Orders must be placed by 12pm on the following shipping dates to ensure that the stated delivery dates can be met.

  • Friday 15th May for delivery on Monday 18th May
  • Monday 18th May for delivery Tuesday 19th May
  • Wednesday 20th May for delivery Thursday 21st May
  • Friday 22nd May for delivery Tuesday 26th May (Bank Holiday Monday)

For further information regarding orders and delivery please contact our Customer Services Team.

On Sunday 10th May, the Priminister encouraged construction and manufacturing industries that have up to this point been closed due to the UK lockdown, to return to work if safe to do so. Since the start of the lockdown in March, Garland UK has put in place measures to ensure the health and safety of its staff. This includes the office and warehouse team and our Technical Managers across the country. Our staff that are able to work remotely will continue to do so, in order to reduce the risks to the operational team at headquarters.

In order for our team to be able to return to construction sites, we have updated our Risk Assessments to address the risks of COVID-19. These actions will allow us to make informed decisions and implement control measures such as additional PPE to keep our staff safe whilst working on site.


Clients and Surveyors

Our nationwide team of Technical Managers are now where absolutely necessary, able to return to sites to carry out any urgent surveys and complete inspection reports for ongoing projects. They will be adhering to the health and safety advice as set by the Government to ensure that they operate in a safe manner and minimise any risks related to the Coronavirus pandemic. Our Technical Team will continue to work from home and are fully committed and available to answer your questions. We are actively encouraging our clients and contractors to conduct remote meetings via video conferencing tools where possible. Should you require further assistance such as specifications, technical drawings, guarantees or product information please contact your local Technical Manager.


Contractors

Garland Approved Contractors are continuing to service sites where possible in a safe and orderly manner as per construction site safety guidelines set out by the Government. The NFRC has published detailed information on how to conduct roofing works safely as we transition out of the lockdown period.

Our staff at HQ remain on hand to assist contractors with orders for ongoing and new projects. Should your project be starting in the coming weeks then please can we ask that you reach out to your local Technical Manager who will be able to make arrangements for the order to be safely fulfilled.
