A Message From CEO Patrick Sheehan On GZA's Response To COVID-19
At a Glance
GZA’s leadership has been carefully monitoring the rapidly developing facts and response to COVID-19, with a focus on both federal guidelines and directives from local and state public health authorities where we have operations and client projects. I am writing today to update you on the steps we are taking in response to this quickly evolving situation.
Our goals are twofold:
- Continue to support the health and safety of our employees, their families, and our communities.
- Maintain business continuity during this challenging period and serve all our clients’ needs.
We Have a Plan
Our Pandemic Preparedness Plan has been activated and our Pandemic Team is constantly monitoring the situation, issuing and updating health and safety guidance consistent with local, state, and federal guidance. Our goal is to keep our staff and communities healthy and safe. This Team will remain in place throughout this situation.
We Have Broad Resources
GZA has staff in 30 offices across the country and a One Company focus on our clients. We have redundant levels of expertise across the company to support your design and analysis efforts and have put in place safety measures to allow us to continue to support your active field operations.
We Are Technology-Enabled
Our staff are working remotely and equipped with the necessary technology, including secure VPN and videoconferencing tools, to perform their duties and communicate with you effectively. Our technology infrastructure will continue to be maintained by our highly qualified staff.
We Are Looking Ahead
We are developing contingency plans if domestic travel is restricted and are ready to work with you to address your project-specific needs.
As this situation continues to evolve, we will provide you with regular updates. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me, your GZA project lead, or anyone else from GZA leadership if you have questions or concerns. I am confident that GZA has the systems, personnel, and focus to fulfill our commitment to meeting your needs, even during this unprecedented time.
I wish you and yours well as we work through this difficult situation together.
With warm regards,
Patrick Sheehan, CEO
