The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect us all and is now afflicting virtually every country globally. We at Woodhouse remain very much open for business but have had to put measures in place to protect the safety and wellbeing of our staff, contractors, customers and the general public, including the closure of a number of our sites.
Protection and Safety
Following the national address by the Prime Minister earlier this week, Woodhouse has temporarily closed its main office in Hatfield and office-based staff are now working from home for the foreseeable future. We are monitoring the latest developments around COVID-19 very closely.
Our physical doors may be closed however the team has positively adopted video conferencing which means it’s easy for us to keep in touch. Face-to-face meetings have now been replaced with online meetings and presentations wherever possible. We are continuing to provide consultations and advice which means the impact upon client projects is minimised. As a team, we remain committed to providing outstanding service and delivering high-quality Smarter Workspaces for all of our clients.
From 26th March 2020, construction at sites deemed to not be ‘essential’ have been paused to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our construction site workers and clients, and in order to comply with government advice and add our support to the protection of the NHS.
We appreciate the willingness and understanding of our clients affected by the delay to their projects, and would assure them that works will be resumed as soon as it is practically possible to do so in a safe and protective manner.
Work is continuing on sites where clients are providing essential services to the nation such as the NHS. This will ensure the smooth running of their services at this difficult time. Government instructions are being closely monitored and site operations are following approved protocols for the protection of all concerned.
Whilst we cannot predict the impact that COVID-19 will have on us all over the coming months, we can reassure you that we are taking all reasonable steps to minimise its impact on you and our staff.
We will continue to keep you updated as and when developments unfold but, in the meantime, if you have any concerns regarding your projects please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Thank you for continuing to support us, and by continuing to work together we will get through this.
