Dear Stewart clients, partners, and colleagues,
We would like to share our business strategy and operational approach as we continue to regularly monitor updates from national and local governments for information around the spread of the novel coronavirus.
In addition to following the regulations of governmental health authorities in all our offices, we are taking additional precautions to best protect our people and our clients’ health, safety, and wellbeing. As of March 16, 2020, we are urging our employees to work from home whenever possible, practice social distancing, and follow the recommended CDC guidelines. In addition, we are limiting all non-essential travel and face-to-face meetings, routinely sanitizing our offices, and regularly communicating expert guidance to our staff on staying healthy.
During this time, we are intently focused on maintaining business continuity and upholding our commitment to excellence for all clients and projects.
Stewart is providing the necessary equipment, technology, and connectivity for our team to meet schedules and project commitments while maintaining high security and data integrity standards. We frequently leverage these systems and workflows through virtual collaboration to seamlessly share work across our offices and with our clients, including:
• Secure Virtual Private Network for optimized data access
• User-Based Video Conferencing for face-to-face engagement with project teams
• Microsoft Teams for virtual community creation and real-time collaboration
• Blue Beam Technology for design/drawings reviews
• DocuSign for electronic sealing
• Autodesk BIM 360 Connectivity
Our continued commitment remains focused upon our colleagues, clients, consultant partners, and communities. We are meeting regularly to assess the evolving situation and will continue to inform as updates arise. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need assistance as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances.
