Construction was paused last week on the scheme where Mace and Sir Robert McAlpine are main contractors on phase two and three.
Worried site sources contacted the Enquirer last week claiming that the client was hoping to restart the job quickly despite contractors deciding to stop work.
But an update from Battersea Power Station Development Company boss Simon Murphy has clarified the client’s position.
He said: “We are working closely with all our customers, tenants, supply chain, construction managers and the wider community to ensure we are navigating the challenges faced as effectively and appropriately as possible.
“Following the temporary closure of the site last week we have concluded that, in light of the government requirements and guidelines, the site should remain closed for the next few weeks.
“We will review the position again on 17 April and if deemed appropriate to reopen, main site works would recommence on 27 April.
“In this period the only people working on site will be our security team and a skeleton staff undertaking essential maintenance.
“Offsite works and design activity will continue where possible to ensure we are in the best possible position when we restart on site.”
