These are the actions we are taking:

  • Beginning on Monday, March 16th all 450 employees have been working remotely and will until further notice.
  • All in-person meetings at our office will be changed to conference calls and video conferencing.  We will work with all clients and project teams to set this up.
  • We are closely monitoring the recommendations of the CDC, Federal, State and Local Agencies to doing our utmost to keep everyone safe.
  • The SF Building and Planning Departments have resumed services and added a new electronic plan review system. We continue to work with all agencies and our clients to continue progress on their permits and projects.
