Valued Partners: We at Overaa Construction, probably like you, are working our way through this dynamic COVID-19 crisis as best we can. The good news is that we currently have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Overaa and that we are able to continue operations on projects that are considered Essential Infrastructure under the Counties’ Shelter-in-Place order. In each case, we are working closely with the project owner and other stakeholders, to balance the needs of our contractual obligations with employee/worker safety.
As we continue to operate in compliance with County and State Orders, our top priority is to protect the health and safety of our employees and partners. Construction is a ‘people’ business and while we all thrive on personal interactions with others, for the moment, those in-person interactions are on hold. We are following the guidelines provided by the government to minimize the risk of spread of coronavirus on our jobsites and in our offices. We have moved over 90% of our office workforce to remote locations, or work from home. Our Richmond headquarters is temporarily closed to visitors and we are holding meetings virtually. At jobsites, we are adjusting schedules to allow for shift rotation to minimize workers in one area. We have increased the frequency of cleaning of communal and high touch surfaces. We continue to be extra vigilant in the use of PPE and following hygiene protocols established by the CDC.
If you need to reach us, we are here. Please be patient as we are mostly remote and it may take us a little longer to respond to you. We look forward to connecting again, in person, as soon as possible.
Until then, stay safe, and be well.
