The current situation surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), which is affecting our communities and businesses is unprecedented. Our first priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of our colleagues and clients.

We would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that Office Principles are moving into the next few months in a strong financial position. We have been in business for nearly 35 years, have a stable financial standing and are here for the long run.

Please be assured that we remain fully open for business and are committed to supporting all our projects and our clients. We are doing everything possible to ensure that we maintain our service levels during these unique and challenging times.

We have all the resources we need to see us through this current period. Our teams have everything they need to work from home, and we are finding ways to stay connected and engaged, particularly using Microsoft Teams. Good strong communication is key, so we start every day with an all-company Teams meeting to keep everyone updated and focused.

We have made the difficult decision to temporarily close most of our construction sites until further notice. For our sites which still remain open we have implemented a range of measures to ensure that everyone stays safe. Very shortly all our site operatives will be temperature tested upon arrival, and alcohol hand sanitiser is available at all site entrances and signing-in points. Should an operative show signs or symptom of Coronavirus, we own a commercial fogging and sanitising machine which means that we can disinfect the site, and be back up and running within 24 hours.

We are completely committed to our clients and their projects and will keep you updated as we progress through this difficult period. If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Please keep safe, and we wish you all the very best.
