At Chapman, the health and safety of our team and all jobsite personnel has always been our top priority. As such, we have made the cautious decision to temporarily shut down all non-critical jobsites to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus. For essential projects that must remain open, we have implemented rigorous social distancing, hygiene, and personal protection measures in addition to following all aspects of the state-issued “COVID-19 Guideline and Procedures for All Construction Sites and Workers at All Public Work”.
We are currently working with our project teams to conduct job-by-job safety assessments. On each project, we are developing site-specific plans for implementing these guidelines and ensuring that the new protocols can be successfully followed. Other jobsites may be reopened once those plans are complete and the entire team has signed-off on both the strategy and the execution.
Additionally, the majority of office staff in both our Newton, MA and Manchester, NH offices are working remotely until further notice. They all remain available by cell phone, email, and video conference to meet any project needs.
As things continue to develop rapidly, we will remain flexible and adjust our plan accordingly.
