We have always had a policy of enabling flexible and remote working throughout GEA, so the transition to all of our staff working at home was straightforward. Our IT and telephone systems are such that you should not experience any problems with contacting us on the usual switchboard, direct dial or mobile telephone numbers. We are continuing to follow Government advice, with staff mainly based at home and only visiting the office when necessary.
We are increasingly taking on new work and have established new risk-based working arrangements to ensure that all of our normal site work can continue safely, with the safety of our staff, subcontractors and public being the overriding consideration at all times. We are continuing to draw on our extensive database of previous work to assist clients with progressing new projects in those cases where site-based work is unsafe or impractical. We are very much open for business across all three of our offices, so please do not hesitate to contact us with new enquiries.
