To our clients:
With the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continuing to impact global operations, I would like to share an update regarding Black & Veatch’s continuity plans as we work to provide services and meet your ongoing needs.
Black & Veatch is open for business and will remain so. The lifeline infrastructure services you provide have never been more critical. With a drastic increase in teleworking, distance learning and virtual communication needs, your customers are relying heavily on data networks, both to work and to consume information, entertainment and media. People are evaluating the changing nature of water and energy requirements in their homes and businesses as well as the reliability and resilience of critical systems. Our professionals are here to support your organizations in providing these services while we work through this unprecedented time and begin planning for the future.
While the scale of the pandemic is unprecedented, we have embraced new ways to work and innovate, minimizing the impacts to our clients as much as possible. This includes:
- Aggressively leveraging the geographic distribution of our global workforce to provide 24/7 support for our clients.
- Deploying remote and virtual-access productivity tools and software to facilitate teaming capabilities.
- Relying on decades of experience as a global solutions provider to remain connected to to our clients, regardless of location.
- We are engaged with the federal government, state governments and local healthcare organizations to collaborate on ways that our Distributed Infrastructure expertise can be utilized for development of facilities to rapidly support the need for additional care facilities.
We are engaged with industry leaders across the software and technology space, as well as the federal government, state governments and local healthcare organizations to collaborate on ways that our Distributed Infrastructure expertise can be utilized to rapidly support a range of community needs.
We continue to follow the recommendations and directives of local, state, national and international governments and health organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. With health and safety as our top priority, we are focused on social distancing, screening and tracing programs, limiting group sizes and taking other steps to minimize interaction and virus transmission. Additionally, we are restricting access to active project sites and require masks be worn at all times.
We want everyone to stay safe and healthy and will continue to do all we can to be of service as we work to deliver the strategic, sustainable infrastructure that helps humanity thrive through these challenging times.
Thank you for your support.
