Updates on COVID-19 and what that means for Jalcon.
13 August 2020
As we already know, the Government announced that Auckland is to operate at Alert Level 3 lockdown until Midnight on Friday 14th August 2020 due to the recent Community outbreak. No doubt, we will have further information shortly regarding the longevity of this lockdown period and associated Alert Level.
Under Alert Level 3 we are able to open all of our Construction sites and follow strict protocols.
Our Sales and Administration teams will continue to work from home and are available to assist. Please note our Showhomes will remain closed during this time.

All our construction sites are fully operational, our showhomes are open and our offices are open and available for meetings with clients and colour consultations. There are new COVID protocols operating in each location so don’t be disappointed if we don’t greet you with a handshake as we used to.
During the lock down we used the time to upskill our staff on new software to speed up construction and make our internal processes more streamlined. And our design and technical drawing teams continued producing high quality designs and drawings throughout.
Jalcon has been in the business of building new homes in Auckland for more than 25 years. During that time we have experienced several recessions so we are well attuned to managing our cash flow during quieter times. It is worth noting that we have been working with Kainga Ora since late last year in their new Auckland developments as a builder partner – so this is also good for cash flow.
So, Jalcon is well positioned to meet your building or new home needs.
Visit us soon to discuss your specific requirements. If you are unwell please stay home and contact us by phone or through the contact page on this website.

This is our second week back on all sites constructing under level 3 protocols. Our staff are all reporting high levels of engagement from all sub-contractors – they’re keen to back working – and good progress is being made.
For buyers wanting to engage with our sales staff they have continued to work through the lock down and can now arrange site visits for you. Please contact them directly. We have limited stock remaining in most of our developments so it is a good time while interest rates are low to secure your new home.
All other Jalcon staff have continued to work from home during the levels 4 and 3 with little interruption to progress on technical drawings and consenting and normal operations.
Whilst we are all looking forward to moving to level 2, in reality there will not be much change for us under level 2. Distancing, sanitising and working from home where possible look to be the new normal for a while to come yet.
