Construction under Alert Level 3

Auckland will remain at Alert Level 3 until Sunday 7 of March. The rest of the country will be at Alert Level 2 for the same period which means some changes to how we operate on construction sites.

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement that community transmission has been confirmed, some increased restrictions have been re-introduced for our build sites.

Moving Auckland into Alert Level 3 means work can continue on sites across the region with strict hygiene, health and safety and physical distancing measures in place – the same approach we and our partners took when the country previously moved to Alert Level 3.

For the rest of the country – now in Alert Level 2- work can also continue on construction sites. Under this level, physical distancing of one metre between workers is to be maintained wherever possible and increased hygiene measures must be reinstated.

Where physical distancing is not able to be maintained on sites operating at either Alert Levels 2 or 3, the use of face coverings, such as a bandanna, or a non-surgical mask, is strongly encouraged.

Restrictions for both Alert Levels will remain in place until midnight on Sunday 7 March and information on this will be updated as soon as it is made available.
