"Before we launch into our regular update I wanted to brief you on the precautionary measures that we have put in place to protect our staff, clients, consultants and contractors as well as share our readiness to continue providing our services.
We have implemented a work from home policy for all our employees who are able to carry out their roles remotely, meaning our architectural and construction management teams are still fully operational and continuing to perform their roles.
For those employees who remain working on our construction sites we are strictly following government protocols around social distancing and hygiene. The construction industry is one of the most prepared with respect to workplace health and safety protocols which we suspect is the reason construction sites continue to remain in operation around the world where there is full lock down for most other industries.
We don’t anticipate any significant disruptions in the coming months. Similarly, we have been in contact with our suppliers and despite some of them operating at a slightly limited capacity they are still fulfilling all orders for construction materials and deliveries.
That said, we are constantly monitoring the situation, so please rest assured that should the situation change I will contact you with any developments and updates."
- Clinton Cole, Director

This major alterations and additions project for a young family of five provided the additional space on a tight site for them to grow over the decades ahead. The project provides all the comforts that great architecture enjoys.

"Clinton told me about the research conducted by his design and building firm - CplusC Architectural Workshop – into sustainability, carbon, embodied energy and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) software, over the past six months."
