From Monday 18th May 2020, we saw reopening businesses on construction sites nationwide.
We are delighted to be opening our doors for building sites and replacing boilers in your home.
On the evening of Friday 27th March 2020, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announced the lockdown for the majority of businesses in Ireland. That included to work carried out by ourselves.
With nearly 8 weeks of closure, we are not only celebrating the reopening of businesses but we are also ensuring the safety of our employees as they get back to work.

Roadmap for reopening society and businesses issued by Gov.ie
The reopening of construction sites was part of ‘Phase 1’ from the governments notice of reopening society and businesses. Also included in Phase 1 (issued on Monday 18th May 2020) was the reopening of hardware stores, builders merchants and those providing essential supplies and tools for gardening, farming and agriculture; garden centres and farmers markets.
Further details of ‘Phase 1’ can be found HERE.
Phase 2 is due to go ahead on Monday 8th June 2020. Phase 2 should allow small retail outlets to reopen with a small number of staff on the basis that the retailer can control the number of individuals that staff and customers interact with at any one time.
Phase 2 should also allow public libraries opening so long as the numbers allowed in are limited, social distancing is observed and there is strict hand-sanitising in place for anyone who goes into the library.
Phase 3 is due to go ahead on Monday 29th June 2020. Phase 2 should allow the opening of all other non-essential retail outlets on the basis of a restriction on the number of staff and customers per square metre so that social distancing can be maintained.
This is to be limited to retail outlets with a street-level entrance and exit and does not include those in enclosed shopping centres due to higher risk.
During phase 3 they also hope to see cafés and restaurants providing on-premises food and beverages can reopen. They must comply with social distancing and strict cleaning protocols.

Hygiene at work for reopening businesses:
- Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean. Do not share objects that touch your mouth such as bottles and cups.
- Disposable gloves: Do not wear disposable gloves in place of washing hands. The virus can get on gloves in the same way it gets on hands.
- Ensure people cough/sneeze into a tissue, sleeve or elbow to catch any droplets.
- Face masks: Face masks are unlikely to be of benefit it the wearer is not sick.
- Ensure no person with symptoms attends work/site. For example: fever (temperature), cough, shortness of breath, breathing difficulties, etc.
- Workers must adhere to a social distance of 2 metres from each other.
- Ensuring that all surfaces and objects are cleaned and disinfected regularly.
