Here at Cogent Associates we have been project managing the design process in anticipation of a gradual reopening of the construction sites in early May.
Although the new operating procedures for live construction sites may slow down progress on site, in some ways we are going back into this stronger and ready to hit the ground running. Working remotely has led to greater opportunities to communicate, with fewer interruptions and more opportunities to pause for thought. This has enabled us to successfully move projects forward, with strategic decision making, thanks to a greater appreciation and understanding of projects by the wider design team. We look forward to sustaining this level of collaboration to ensure effective mobilisation and compliance with the CIF Standard Operating Procedures so that works proceed safely.
