Covid -19

Following the Prime Ministers broadcast on Monday 23 March 2020 our current operations have been amended to suit guidance.

Our current policy where we are able, is to carry on business as usual, albeit modified to suit changing guidance, so that our efforts and yours will collectively minimise the potential damage to the economy and the livelihood and health of our staff and consultants. We currently work on many projects in the public sector and NHS and need to keep servicing these projects.

First and foremost we need to consider the protection of our staff, our clients and our consultants.

Our Office is Open most Staff are working from the Office, with some home working to suit current restrictions and staff needs.

We would prefer that meetings with Clients, Consultants and Builders to be by phone, Microsoft Teams or Zoom, but are able to accept visitors to the office and to visit some Clients premises provided that hygiene and Social distancing measures are in place and possible. We would expect face masks or visors to be worn during any visits.

if areas we are surveying are unsafe, we will mark them as such on survey date produced, we may need to return to take check dimensions at at later date. We will also as usual issue PDF's of drawings that are in progress.

Naturally we will be reviewing things as this situation develops.

We are a small business and so would appricate timely settlement of Invoices issued. Everything helps to keep the economy moving.
