Covid-19: How we act29.04.2020
Covid-19 is spreading in Europe, and the authorities have announced new guidelines to reduce the spread of the infection. Gottlieb Paludan Architects follows these guidelines and, at the same time, strives to maintain focus on solving all tasks as planned.
At Gottlieb Paludan Architects, we take the situation very seriously and we have implemented new guidelines on our offices in Denmark, Norway and Sweden according to the instructions of the local authorities. These guidelines are intended to ensure the health and safety of our employees and clients, while ensuring the progress of our projects and comply with our obligations to clients and partners.
In Denmark, the government and parliamentary parties have agreed on a gradual and controlled reopening of the private sector and from Tuesday, April 14, we have made it possible for our employees to work from the office, if necessary. However, we are mandating most employees to work remotely. We are continuously staying informed on relevant guidelines for our workplace so that we can continue to help minimize the spread of the infection. Among other measures, we have taken the following initiatives to ensure that the necessary distance between people and a continued focus on hygiene are respected.
• Offices and canteen are arranged with 2 m. distance between the seats
• Physical meeting activities are limited to the extent it is necessary
• Posters on conference rooms indicate the allowed (reduced) number of people
• Many employees continue to work from home
• All travel activities are on hold
Our employees are still fully accessible for customers and partners by e-mail and telephone. Scheduled meetings are held via Skype so we are able to maintain efficient progress and good communication in all tasks. Any need for physical participation in meetings in Denmark and abroad, visiting construction sites, etc. must be agreed with the nearest manager, who has the dialogue about this with clients and collaborating partners.
At Gottlieb Paludan Architects, we will continue our production through virtual meetings and file sharing via Skype, Microsoft 365, etc. while adhering to government guidelines in close dialogue with clients and collaborating partners.
Gottlieb Paludan Architects follows the outbreak of the Coronavirus meticulously and acts in accordance with local health authorities.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
