We are still fully operational but are doing our bit to ‘flatten the curve’ and limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are taking immediate measures to protect the health of our staff, clients, fellow consultants and the wider community.
All staff have the capability to work remotely and are being encouraged to do so while continuing to maintain a high quality of experience for our clients virtually via phone, email, video and teleconference. For the past two weeks we have been undertaking working from home practice runs to test our IT capabilities and our working practices to minimise disruption if we do have to fully shut down our office.
Impact on the industry
At the moment it is business as usual however we are monitoring how this crisis could impact your projects this could include:
• a shortfall of staff/consultants/council staff…and this may impact the project documentation.
• delays to the delivery of some products which would require alternative products to be selected, and possibly the resubmission of documentation to the PCA/or council.
• site closures, which then impact AJ+C services e.g. site observations/defects inspections.
Any delays will be flagged as soon as we are aware of this.
We have identified communication as one of our highest priorities. Utilising the latest technologies, we will communicate with you as usual on projects, we are ensuring our teams continue to communicate effectively internally and externally and finally we encourage all our clients to contact us with any concerns, delays you may be encountering or just to say hello during these isolated times.
