Asakura Robinson has implemented the following measures to protect the health and safety of our staff. During this time, we strive to continue the same great service we always provide to our clients; this includes implementing simple guidelines so we can focus on serving you. This policy will be revised each month to reflect changing conditions and posted on the Asakura Robinson website.
1. Company Travel – In general, we will not be asking employees to travel or make work-related travel arrangements at this time. However, client-requests for out-of-town projects will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Only employees who feel comfortable traveling will be asked to do so. At this time, travel is limited to personal vehicles (no flights/buses/Ubers) and minimal overnight hotel stays. The following safety standards must be strictly followed.
2. Site Visits – When possible, all construction administration should be supported remotely and virtually. This is already happening on many of our projects and many CMs, Contractors, and Consultants have already made the transition, which is proving to be effective. This could include, but not be limited to: Conference calls or Virtual meetings in lieu of site meetings, Virtual walk-throughs, Video/Photo Reviews
3. In-person Indoor Meetings – ARC employees will not be attending indoor, in-person meetings at this time, and no meetings with external visitors will be hosted in our offices. We strongly encourage our clients to extend a virtual meeting option, and we are also happy to assist in setting up virtual meeting options as needed. Outdoor meeting requests will follow the site visit policy above.
4. In-person Events – Asakura Robinson will not be organizing or attending in-person private events at this time. Client requested public meetings may be considered, if AR is satisfied that travel will not put employees at risk, and that the client has a detailed safety policy in place for the event.
