A construction company has come under fire after it posted a notice on its website in which it said “no new construction is under construction” in its area of business.
In the notice, the firm said that it was “reopening” a new construction project in the same building that was built in the 1980s and was “not a continuation of the previous project”.
The notice said the construction was “in progress” and was expected to begin “in the near future”.
However, in a statement on the firm’s website, a spokesperson said that the work was “completed” and that it would be opened for the public later this year.
The firm did not specify when the work would be completed.
The statement added: “The construction will be in the form of a small open area, allowing for the building of a new structure, and will be open to the public during the period of the project.
“Work on this project will begin in the near term, and we look forward to the opening of the new project.””
Construction industry unions have been angered by the firm.”

Construction industry unions have been angered by the firm.
Scottish Construction and the British Construction Federation said the notice was a “disgraceful” act.
“This is the first time in Scotland’s history that the construction industry has been forced to make such a statement.
It’s outrageous,” said a spokesperson for the BFCF.”
The BFCC is concerned that the Scottish Government is attempting to shut down one of Scotland’s leading industry groups and we will be calling on the Scottish Secretary of State to ensure that construction workers are given the chance to speak out against this decision.”
In May, the Scottish government announced plans to build new rail tunnels in the North West of the country.
The project would include new tunneling routes, the expansion of existing railway tunnels and the removal of existing rail lines.
