November 16 Update
As you are no doubt aware, a third wave of COVID-19 cases has arrived in Washington. Cases have doubled in our state over the last two weeks. CRD management continues to closely monitor the changing situation and follow all state guidelines. Here are a few updates about how we are responding.
In accordance with the governor's recommendations, we are taking commonsense precautions to limit the spread of the virus in our workplace and on our jobsites.
- Educating staff about prevention and detection.
- Implementing a basic cleaning regimen in our office and on our jobsites.
- Asking office employees to work from home whenever possible.
- Moving all client meetings online.
- Asking sick employees to stay home.
- Asking our subcontractors to remain at home if they are sick.
- As of now, we continue to operate under Phase 2 Construction Restart Rules.
- We continue to adhere to a rigorous set of jobsite requirements
around safety training, social distancing, PPE, sanitation, and health symptom checks.
- CRD's design and production schedules are not currently affected.
- We will do everything we can, including moving employees between projects, to try to
stick to our schedules as closely as possible.
- If one or more of our designers does get sick, we anticipate little to no impact on the progress of the project. They will have the ability to work from home once they feel up to it.
- If one or more of our lead carpenters gets sick, there may be a slight pause as we reassign work loads to minimize the delay in the schedule.
- If clients themselves get sick, we may have to pause work in the home until the client is no longer contagious, after which we will work with the client to adjust schedules to see if we can make up any of the time that was lost.
Thankfully, we have not been directly affected, and we hope that continues. If anything changes, we will be in close communication with our clients regarding their current and upcoming projects. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. Thank you for trusting CRD with your home remodel.
