The implications of COVID-19 for our community have escalated rapidly in recent days and we have implemented a number of measures which we will continue to refine over time, with respect to managing the impact of the virus on our people, our business, our clients and our projects.

Our business continuity planning reflects the requirements of the New Zealand Government and advice from the Ministry of Health, which we will continue to monitor, and prioritises the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, our clients and their families.

In response to the Government raising the COVID-19 Alert to Level 4, we have transitioned all of our people from our Auckland and Christchurch studios to remote working from home. We are continuing to progress our project work on this basis and we are committed to continuing to service our clients and to collaborate with our colleagues and partners as seamlessly as possible in the upcoming weeks.

We are seeking to be alert to the constantly changing developments arising from the pandemic and our planning will allow us to respond in a measured and agile manner. We will endeavour to provide early advice of any new measures we put in place.

In the meantime we are confident in our ability to continue to service our clients and projects through what will undoubtedly be a challenging period for us all.
