Communication with Flying Butler when booking and during our stay was superb.
We had a great stay and will recommend your apartments to my employer’s travel.
Great apartment and really impressed with the equipment in the flat too.
Following an understandably challenging start to 2020 with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the UK construction industry is now showing signs of renewed activity with added safety measures such as socially distanced changing rooms and canteens, one-way systems and changes to the way people access and leave working sites.
The nature of the construction industry means that staff are often required to work on projects far away from home - contractors and staff can be required to be on site for varying lengths of time, from short term stays to projects lasting months.
In many cases, it is more practical and cost effective for employers to arrange temporary accommodation for staff near their place of work rather than commuting, which can be both expensive and time consuming. And with the number of employees within construction forecast to reach 2.77 million people by 2023, the mobile construction workforce is set to increase.
Here at Flying Butler Apartments, we are renowned for our ability to help a wide range of sectors with their accommodation requirements - safely and efficiently. Most recently, our reservations team has been particularly successful in finding accommodation solutions for a number of construction companies.
All our 500+ apartments across London and South-East England are contemporary, flexible and spacious, providing everything a workforce could need to refuel after a hard day at work.
With contact-free check-in and features enabling a self-contained stay – such as fully-fitted kitchens and private bathrooms – security, safety and privacy are key. What’s more, our Stay Safe With Us programme aims to safeguard all staff and guests in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic - a new elevation of sanitisation measures, social distancing procedures and infection prevention solutions in order to provide our guests with an assurance of safety and security during their stay.
All properties are expertly operated and well maintained by an in-house, dedicated team who are always available.
Why choose Flying Butler Apartments for your construction staff?
Self-contained, home from home environment
A recent survey by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) showed that 67% of construction employees found the uncertainty of a work location stressful. Flying Butler serviced apartments offer a home away from home - a typical serviced apartment is larger than a hotel room, with a separate kitchen and living room space. Guests can relax in the evening in a comfortable environment and enjoy a home cooked meal or a take-away in their own private space.
More room, less cost
Serviced apartments are often cheaper than a hotel room and become even more cost effective the longer guests stay.
The team can stay together
We normally operate several apartments within the same building so teams can stay at the same main address making certain logistics more practical.
Flexible and efficient
We can accommodate large numbers of staff, often within the same accommodation, and changing or extending bookings is easy. We provide support to both the company booking and our guests throughout their stay.
Sanitised and secure
It has never been more important to ensure that staff have a clean and safe environment to stay in. Our serviced apartments provide a private space for guests and our Stay Safe With Us programme aims to safeguard all staff and guests in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic
A recent study from CIOB reported 97% of construction staff had felt stressed in the past year and mental health awareness is a key topic within construction with charities like Anxiety UK working hard to raise the profile of mental health and encourage better and more comprehensive well-being strategies within the industry. Environment can have a significant impact on both mental well-being and productivity. Providing a more spacious, comfortable and private space for employees when they are working away from home can support your existing well-being initiatives.
