Already building with us?
We have you covered. Site visits will be performed 1-on-1 following social distancing protocols. We’re still here for you through the entire experience; if you have any questions please contact your New Home Consultant, Customer Relationship Officer or Site Supervisor. Your build is proceeding as normal with all of our construction team trained in personal safety and hygiene. Though the situation continues to evolve, we are not experiencing any delays or supply chain issues.
At Fairhaven, we are taking all measures to ensure the safety of our customers, staff, and communities by following the most current guidelines from the World Health Organisation to prevent the spread of the virus. We are committed to maintaining personal hygiene with frequent handwashing, use of sanitisers, practising respiratory hygiene, professional cleaning and regularly disinfecting all surfaces in our display homes and myHAVEN selection studio.
Social distancing has been deeply encouraged wherever possible including creating remote workstations for many office staff, staying 1.5 metres from customers and co-workers and not shaking hands. We may not be able to shake your hand but, don’t worry, you’ll still get the same friendly and helpful service as before.
All Fairhaven staff with symptoms of the virus or who have travelled overseas or been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 has been asked to stay home and quarantine for 14 days. We respectfully ask the same from our customers. If you are showing any symptoms, have had contact with someone with the virus or have travelled, kindly contact our staff to find out your options for video conferencing.
Our construction teams continue to operate under the guidance of our Site Supervisors and Construction Manager. Rest assured, progress continues on your home and we have provided our teams with clear instructions on maintaining personal hygiene and safety on site.
