British carmaker Persimmon joins work back to site | Business


Britain’s second largest home builder announced that workers will return to construction sites last Monday as a sign that the UK economy is reopening after weeks of shutdown.

Persimmon said it would resume work on April 27, a month after it felt compelled to close its sites due to government restrictions on a pandemic.

Homebuilder FTSE 100, which sold more than 16,000 homes last year, is the latest in a series of big companies to announce plans to reopen this week with new security protocols. Persimmon rivals Taylor Wimpey and Vistry, formerly known as Bovis, both announced plans to resume construction on Thursday. Vistry said he would resume building houses on Monday, while Taylor Wimpey’s first workers would return on May 4.
