The COVID-19 virus has turned the world on its head, however, the construction industry is still very active and WJM Designs, an essential service, has made commitments to our clients that we are planning to honor through this tough time. We take the health of ourselves and clients very seriously.
Most jurisdictions around northern Georgia including Atlanta have revamped their permitting process over the last several weeks to not only continue accepting submissions for new construction, additions, and remodeling but also review projects previously submitted. We do expect longer wait times for plan review while bugs for these new digital submissions are ironed out. We are continuing to move forward with our projects to ensure they remain on schedule to the best of our ability and to make our clients happy every step along the way.
We are also committed to slowing the spread of the virus and will adhere to CDC Guidelines, especially if we need to enter a client’s home.
The Center for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) has offered several informational tools and advice to aid in stopping the spread. The advice offered includes:
- Cleaning your hands often,
- Avoiding close contact, or abiding by social distancing protocols, and
- Covering your nose and mouth, especially while coughing or sneezing.
To stop the spread of the virus we must work together. Stay informed on what you can do to protect you, your friends, and your family.
Yes, it is a cliche, but WE WILL get through this together!
Stay safe and stay well!
