“We wanted to be leaders in the industry with regards to socially responsible construction and development."

During these unprecedented times, it is important for us to continue building our business. The situation with relation to COVID-19 has forced us to change the ways we operate and shift away from personal contact to a virtual working environment. This has also changed the way we onboard new team members. We have so far had to welcome two new team members for a virtual onboarding.
