To all clients and fellow consultants,

This is to advise that the Acies Civil and Structural team is following Government advice and we will all be working from home until further notice. 

We are well equipped to do this, all of our staff have full capacity to carry out their roles remotely due to our IT set up, and we maintain access to all of our usual design and draughting software. We will be maintaining our quality and checking procedures and supervising work as required. 

In line with advice, we are trying to set up virtual meetings wherever possible, but would reassure you that we are still intending to attend site visits and inspections and any design team meetings that are still planned to go ahead, subject to carrying our risk assessment ahead of any visit to protect both our staff and our site or design team contacts. We would request if anyone within your company has come into contact with COVID-19 you advise us so we can make relevant arrangements for meetings or site visits going forward. In the meantime, we will be pleased to set up Microsoft Teams or Skype meetings if required. 

You may also be interested to know that RSK Group has set up a dedicated COVID-19 decontamination service, as part of RSK Response. The emergency hotline number is 01207 594 921, if you require assistance with any premises or sites. 

Please be assured of our best attention in these difficult times, we are carrying on business as usual, and hope to be able to help you to do the same. 

With kind regards,

The Acies Team
