Minto Communities Calgary COVID-19 Updates
Like many of our customers, we have been monitoring the recent news about the COVID-19 coronavirus. As a community builder, local employer and as construction professionals, the health and safety of our customers, employees and trade partners is of the utmost importance to us. This is something we prioritize on a daily basis and it speaks to the very heart of Minto’s vision – building better places to live, work and play.
As part of our civic responsibility, we are committed to standing united with the local and global community in taking recommended precautions. In light of this, we have amplified health and safety measures for our staff and customers.
As a precautionary measure, our Presentation Centre is closed to the public until further notice. Contact us by phone or email. Learn More
With the onset of COVID-19 we understand your concern regarding possible project delays. At this time, we continue to work towards building completion near the end of 2020. That said, these are unprecedented times and the fluidity of the situation may require that we change the decisions we are making today.
Please know that our priority is and will always be to meet the needs of communities who depend on us. This means following the guidance of local health authorities, our contractor PCL and the global community in taking recommended precautions.
In alignment with the social distancing recommendations made by health authorities, we have limited or altered several of our processes to help safeguard staff, trades and homeowners. At this time, our commitment is to focus on activities that are critical to construction progress and are required for homeowners who are anxious to take possession of their new home at the end of this year.
We will continue to provide relevant updates to homeowners as we progress. The likelihood that this situation will result in a change or delay to occupancy/closing dates continues to increase. We will be in touch by email if your home is affected.
Please ensure we have your current contact information. If you have not received any updates or have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].
We have been in touch with all our Trade partners with specific information to facilitate their health and safety. The site office and project has its own health and safety supervisor who is keeping a close watch on the health of everyone in the office and on the job sites. Internally, PCL has formed a committee of executives and subject matter experts to closely monitor the ever-changing situation. They regularly convene to discuss any potential updates to our COVID-19 strategies.
In the few cases where you are meeting our staff in person during this situation, we want to assure you that we have taken measures to ensure their health and the safety of those they come in contact with.
In addition to vigorous hand washing and other measures, we ask our employees to keep us informed if they have traveled to affected areas or have been in close contact with someone who has been ill. Those meeting those conditions self-isolate for the recommended period to ensure no symptoms are developing before returning to work. Anyone who is experiencing symptoms is required to stay home.
Where possible, a number of our employees are working remotely and using digital means to collaborate and communicate with colleagues and homeowners. Where working from home cannot be facilitated, our staff are working split or modified shifts with strict measures to minimize in-person social interaction. Our commitment is to prioritize health and safety and we are prepared to adopt further measures if necessary.
Minto Communities remains committed to standing united with you and the global community to help prevent the spread of this illness.
We understand this is an uncertain time for everyone. Through our more than 65 year history, we have proven that resilience, having deep ties to the broader community and the ability to adapt are hallmarks of Minto, and we will be here to support our homeowners, employees, trade partners and the communities we serve throughout and after this situation.
We wish you and your loved ones good health.
