Construction in Redding continues amid coronavirus pandemic

Posted: Mar 26, 2020 6:59 PM

REDDING, Calif.- The governor's stay-at-home order means only essential businesses should be open.

Construction companies are among those essential businesses.

Action News Now spoke to co-owner of Palomar Builders in Redding, Jeb Allen. He says so far it's business as usual, just with some stricter safety procedures.

The company currently has three major projects in the works and he expects to complete them.

Allen tells Action News Now his company managed to get all necessary construction materials before the outbreak.

He says he's noticing a change in his team's production.

"Completing our projects on time is a very big concern of our," says Allen. "But recently, we've noticed our production is increased because the subs are a little more anxious, a little more cautious, and just getting the job done that makes us proud of our community."

Allen says it's important to keep his crew working, while still complying with state recommendations. He says his crew is keeping their distance, washing their hands, and wearing proper gear.

Palomar Builders spearheads a lot of property development projects like Shastina Ranch, Highland Park, and Villa del Lago in Redding.
