ISG has closed two of its London sites as a precaution and offered to help retailers repair damaged stores following the rioting that has swept through the capital in the last three days.
A spokesman told Construction News: “There are sites in Brixton and in Ealing that we’ve now closed down. We’re monitoring the situation and assessing risk. From our perspective the health and safety of our staff is paramount to our business.”
He added that sites, both of which are fit-out projects, had only been closed as a precaution.
The spokesman said that ISG has been in contact with its clients to see if it could assist them in repairing damaged premises.
“We have been proactive and been sending out emails to offer help to [clients] if they need it,” he said.
He added that this was an ongoing discussion but so far retailers had not asked for help.
Ealing Broadway in west London was one of several areas targeted by mobs as the riots spread to West London for the first time last night. There has been extensive damage to shopfronts caused by looting and fires.
