COVID-19

Find out how Constructionline is supporting you and your business.

COVID-19 Support

We have created this space as a hub of information you and your business may find useful during these uncertain times. You will find links to government advice as well as updates from Constructionline.

Since the beginning of March, we have had a COVID-19 incident management team in place with senior representation from across the Supplier Assessment Services group. This team is meeting regularly in order to oversee our approach. Constructionline remains committed to supporting the construction industry throughout this difficult time. We have taken steps to ensure the safety of our staff and the continued delivery of the services you rely on from our teams. As all our systems are cloud-based, we have no dependency on physical office spaces meaning our service will remain unaffected.

Being verified has never been more important

With current uncertainty, it is imperative that your profile is fully verified allowing you to appear in buyer searches showing your business is ready to work. Our teams are ready to take your call and help you through the verification process.

To assist you during this time, we have agreed to provide our FastTrack process free of charge to all existing suppliers on the Constructionline network to assist you in proactively achieving a verified status. If you decide to take up this offer, you will be provided dedicated assistance from a verification specialist and your assessments will be undertaken in 2 working days or less.

New COVID-19 Question Set

At Constructionline we are committed to ensuring all our Suppliers are ready to work and during these uncertain times this is even more crucial.

Our main contractor group have requested that Constructionline make available a small subset of questions related to the preparedness of Suppliers for the COVID-19 pandemic and to track the ongoing impact of the pandemic on their staff and businesses. These questions will not be assessed or be used to calculate your Constructionline verification status.

Once collated we will be sharing this data with the main contractors, the wider construction industry and public health bodies. Giving them greater insight into how the industry is coping and allowing them to track where the COVID-19 standard operating procedure is in place.

Question Set

By answering this set of questions you are also allowing the main contractors to gauge vital information on how they can best support suppliers during this difficult time.

To complete these questions simply log into your Constructionline account and click the Constructionline Plus logo to the left of your company name.
