We last updated on how Waverley was working on 27th March, when we were almost all working from home. This has worked amazingly well in the circumstances, thanks to our cloud-based systems and of course the use of modern technology such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams for video conferencing.
As sites have been reopening over the past two months, we are managing to make appointments, but still rely on Zoom and Teams for many face-to-face meetings.
We now have a mix of staff working in the office (mainly our estimating, accounts and operations teams) and others predominantly working from home but coming into the office for a day or so each week. Many direct lines are still diverted to mobile phones, but the main office phones are being looked after at Rowan House now, rather than being transferred.
With a cleaning rota in place and the installation of ShadeTech® Safety Screens throughout the office, we have eased the return to the office with regard to social distancing.
Our team is being strengthened!
Meanwhile our Contract Estimating team has been bolstered firstly by Richard Reeves joining us in March in the role of Junior Estimator, and then Cameron Davie in July as Senior Estimator & Commercial Manager.
Starting a new role when lockdown was hitting must have been a tough call for Rich, but he has stuck in and become a valuable member of the estimating team.
Cam Davie has many years of experience in the solar shading industry and, as a seasoned estimator in this field, he will be a great asset. He will also be providing support to our project management team with help on the commercial and financial side of their role.
This frees up David Macgregor to concentrate his efforts on continuous improvement of our IT Systems and processes, and also further strengthens our relationship with main contractors, fitout contractors and specifiers. Welcome Cam and Rich!
