A Fletcher Construction spokeswoman said it had begun safety preparations for projects including the $700 million Commercial Bay development and the New Zealand International Convention Centre, owned by SkyCity.

"We've been working with other senior leaders on new industry-wide health and safety protocols, which includes new hygiene and sanitisation measures, physical distancing and contact tracing," the spokeswoman said.
