Work resumes on City of Dreams Mediterranean

 

Melco has announced that construction works at City of Dreams Mediterranean resumed on Wednesday,  setting course to deliver Cyprus’ first and only licensed Integrated Casino Resort (ICR), and the largest in Europe and the region.

The decision to recommence construction works was made after the Council of Ministers lifted the restrictions in the construction sector, which were imposed to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Prioritising the health and safety of its employees, Melco continues to adhere to all guidelines for the protection of workers on construction sites issued by the Ministry of Labour and the Department of Labour Inspection, as well as the Ministry of Health’s Medical and Public Health Services.

In addition, Melco said it will implement a series of its own stringent measures, transferring its knowledge and expertise to Cyprus to further ensure the safety of workers at the ICR’s construction site.

Specifically, all workers are required to submit an internal health declaration and have temperatures checked at the construction site entrance.

Furthermore, hand sanitizers and disinfectant alcohol are readily available at the site’s gates and office. Masks will be distributed to all workers daily while offices and shared spaces will be cleaned regularly throughout the day. Furthermore, Melco is educating workers on pandemic prevention measures and posters will be set up in prominent locations.

Will Cornish, Vice President of Construction at Melco, said: “The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic may have affected our original timeline, but Melco prioritises the safety of our colleagues and project quality. We remain committed to the Cyprus project; with our aim to deliver a premium entertainment experience, to offer the highest standards of service whilst ensuring a safe environment for all guests. We are aware that our role in the growth of the tourism industry and more broadly in Cyprus’ economy is of vital importance, especially during these challenging times. We will work tirelessly to ensure that, following this crisis, the country will emerge as a point of reference for luxury tourism, creating a positive impact for society.”
