For more than 28 years, Kwame Building Group has served as one of the nations most reliable construction management providers. Today, we face an unprecedented set of challenges as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact our professional and personal lives. At this time, our main focus is the health and safety of our associates, customers and communities.
Taking the guidance of local, state and federal government officials, Kwame Building Group remains open at this time. Where government has mandated or made significant action, we’ve followed suit quickly. In addition to local government guidance, we are also adhering to recommendations provided by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
In accordance with this expert guidance, we’ve taken various actions to protect the health and well-being of our associates and customers, in order to control the spread of COVID-19:
- Hours: KWAME home office hours will remain 8am-5pm, operating in split shifts so employees in the office can maintain appropriate social distancing, and so the office can be sanitized throughout the day. No two KWAME employees from the same department will be in the office at the same time.
- On Site Visits: Effective Friday, March 20, we will continue servicing clients, and will meet virtually whenever possible.
Support Staff: As our support staff will be on flexible schedules, please be patient as we return calls. We recommend email as the fastest way to reach someone.
- Employees: We have been continually communicating to our employees to follow preventative actions as recommended by the CDC, including staying home if employees are ill or believe they may be at risk, and encouraging appropriate hygiene, such as frequent hand washing. Additionally, hand sanitizers are easily accessible.
Our employees are at the heart of our business, and we remain committed to making sure they take care of themselves during this time. In addition, under no circumstances are we requiring any employees to work if they are not comfortable in doing so. Where feasible, we have moved to a work-from-home environment in our Kwame Building Group administration and support staff environment.
Our priority is the health, safety and well-being of our customers and employees as we all work together to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We understand that many of our customers may not feel comfortable having our team onsite during this time. As always, we’re ready to serve our customers through kwamebuildinggroup.com. Our customers can reach us at 314-862-5344 and our business hours remain from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday – Friday, except as otherwise required by the appropriate local government authority.
We will continue to work closely with government officials and local authorities on a case-by-case basis to ensure our business practices serve the community in the best way possible and will evaluate our options throughout this time period.
These are truly uncharted times. We appreciate your support and remain dedicated to updating our Kwame Building Group community as best we can as we navigate these rapidly changing conditions.
Thank you for your continued commitment and professionalism, and please stay safe and healthy.
