At HMC Architects, we solve challenges with our clients every day to design buildings that positively impact the environment and promote human health and quality of life.
Today we have a new challenge.
As the coronavirus COVID-19 has grown to pandemic level—impacting our daily lives at work and home—we want to share what HMC Architects is doing to support the safety and well-being of the communities in which we live, work, and serve.
HMC is closely monitoring the COVID-19 public health emergency and we’re following all recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and local officials. In many cases, this involves our employees avoiding mass transit, minimizing or eliminating site visits, and conducting their business remotely.
It’s paramount to us that you continue to receive the same level of support you are accustomed to, and we’re confident that with the measures we’ve put in place, we can mitigate this risk together without business disruption.
We are well prepared and have significant experience in successfully serving clients remotely. Our Information Technology and Digital Practice teams have employed proactive measures to ensure that our workforce can work from anywhere and many of our services—and meetings—can be performed virtually. We are also addressing in-person meetings and site visits on a case-by-case basis.
If there is a need to adjust our operations in any capacity or make changes that could impact our work, we will communicate that information to you immediately. If you have any concerns about the ability to complete project work, please contact your principal-in-charge or any member of our firm leadership.
We are optimistic that by working together with you, we can preserve your safety and ours, and help curtail the spread of coronavirus.
