The South’s leading residential building firm

Established in 1798, R. Moulding & Co (Mouldings) is an 8th generation family owned and managed business, specialising in high-end residential building projects. We have our own joinery workshop and are one of the few specialist companies in the region with the scale and skills to deliver a range of high quality prime residential building projects in a very privileged niche of the construction industry. This includes working for high profile clients on some of the UK’s finest buildings.

Mouldings is also responsible for maintaining all the main English Heritage sites in the area, including well-known tourist destinations such as Stonehenge, Lulworth Castle, Old Sarum Castle and Tintagel Castle.

With effect from Thursday 5th November 2020, the Government has once again implemented a nationwide lockdown in response to the increase in COVID-19 infection rates.

The Government has clearly stated that it is actively encouraging the Construction Sector to continue and remain open for business.

At R Moulding & Co, we believe that we have all measures in place to ensure that our clients, staff, subcontractors and design teams remain safe on all workplaces within our control. Our guidance is taken from the current Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures. These measures are continually reviewed and updated if required.

In order to show positive intent and to align with the Government’s drive to encourage business to resume, we initiated a tentative and gradual return to work on Monday 27 April. This of course, is based upon a variety of very strict operating procedures that adhere rigidly to the current Social Distancing Guidelines.

All of our senior managers and surveyors are back at work, albeit most of whom are operating from their homes. We are actively engaged in pursuing new leads and compiling quotations and tenders for new projects. All design team meetings and internal team meetings are being hosted very effectively via video link.

We are currently operating our sites at about 85% of our usual resource levels and remain ever hopeful that under the current Government guidance, with careful management and the improving support from our supply chain, we can gradually increase this over the coming weeks and aim towards a return to full resource by early June.

Friday 24 April

It is now nearly five weeks ago that we took the decision to close all our sites and align with the first imposed lock-down period.

The PM’s advice at the time was very clear – only essential work was to continue. In addition to this; the Social Distancing Measures (SDM’s) quickly adopted by the HSE were simply prohibitive for most of our site based activities to operate compliantly; our supply chain closed more or less overnight; and above all, we believed that we had a moral duty to help isolate as many people as possible for this initial lock-down period. By our reckoning, in closing our sites, we have probably isolated 600 or 700 people (including respective family members).

Over the past week, the Construction Leadership Council’s latest version of SDM’s has clarified more details, making it more practical to carry out the majority of site-based activities, albeit at a lower intensity. We have also been encouraged by our suppliers suggesting the resumption of a limited service for collection and deliveries.

In order to show positive intent and to align with the Government’s new drive to encourage business to resume, we have decided to initiate a gradual return to work from Monday 27 April. This of course, is based upon very strict operating procedures that adhere rigidly to the current SDM’s.

We remain ever hopeful that under the current Government guidance, with the careful management of our sites and the support from our supply chain, we can aim towards a return to full resource by early June.

7 April 2020

Moulding & Co. (Salisbury) Ltd

As a direct result of the Prime Minister’s address to the nation on Monday 23rd March 2020, we decided to close all our sites immediately, furlough the majority of our trade staff and align with the national three-week period of isolation. Where possible, our management staff have continued to operate remotely in order for us to continue with any project management, closure of completed projects and the securing of new business.

During this time, the Government has maintained its encouragement for construction sites to continue, but only under a protocol of strict social distancing and for work of an essential nature (albeit the nature of ‘essential work’ has yet to be defined).

The HSE released a statement on Monday 6 April 2020 to enforce the criteria of social distancing and warn of heavy fines and enforcement notices should this not be upheld. Similarly, our insurance company have aligned their requirements accordingly.

Unfortunately, for a large amount of our site operations, it is just not possible to satisfy the necessary social distancing rules. There are however, certain areas of work where operations could continue safely.

In order to comply with the Governments furloughing policy, each member of our employed staff committed to this arrangement cannot return to work until a period of 3 weeks has expired. We are therefore actively reviewing a possible restart of certain sites, with a restricted labour resource from Monday 20 April. This of course depends entirely on any changes to Government advice and our available supply chain.

In order to satisfy our safety obligations under social distancing, we have actively started to compile site specific risk assessments and method statements to establish a way forward. We are also engaging regularly with our subcontractors and suppliers to establish a protocol of supply.

In the meantime, let’s hope that the wider measures of national isolation can turn the tide on this dreadful virus, making the workplace a safe environment to return to.
