Dear All

In light of the ongoing situation relating to COVID-19, I wanted to let you know that in response to this situation we have implemented our business continuity plans.

I summarise the position below:

  • Staff are already, wherever possible, working from home. All staff have the necessary equipment and software for remote working inc. conferencing and accessing our office systems.

  • Since events started to escalate we been actively reviewing and internally disseminating our protocols for working as effectively as possible in these altered circumstances.

  • Face to face meetings in connection with our projects continue but only where essential and at a much reduced level. Video or audio conferencing in whatever IT application is most appropriate is now in full and active use.

  • We continue to visit construction sites where strictly necessary whilst abiding by all relevant guidance.

  • Currently our office remains open with a reduced number of staff who need to be in the office. We are reviewing our position on this day to day as events unfold and government advice is updated.

  • We are fully prepared to operate without normal access to the office when and if this becomes necessary. Arrangements are in place to keep our premises safe and secure in that eventuality.

  • Our landlines will remain answered throughout although we expect most communication will be by other means.

  • Our leadership team is closely monitoring and managing this fast moving situation and we will advise you of any significant change in how we are responding.

If you have any further questions or queries regarding this, then please do get in touch with myself or one of our Operations Directors..

As these extraordinary events unfold please rest assured that our energies and minds will continue to be applied to overcoming difficulties and working together to achieve positive progress.

Please stay safe and thank you for your understanding and support.
