COVID-19 Update #6: 27/05/2020

  • All

In line with the latest guidance all office based employees will continue to work from home. However plans for a COVID safe office environment in all our locations are well advanced and we look forward to a safe return when the lockdown restrictions are eased.

Revised travel practices for all of our employees are still in place and working hours varied to avoid rush hour.

Our catering equipment service engineers, security engineers and M&E maintenance engineers are providing a service for critical sectors, critical systems and other client requirements.

Our M&E sites and prefabrication facilities are operating under stringent COVID 19 requirements which ensure social distancing, enhanced PPE as appropriate, strict hygiene controls and a severe limitation on workforce numbers.

The switchboard 020 7837 6433 is operating from 8.00am – 5.30pm Monday to Thursday and 8.00am – 4.00pm Friday. Our receptionist is able to transfer calls to all staff working from home, so please use this number or normal help desk numbers for out-of-hours as necessary.

Gratte Brothers remains in a stage of “business as unusual” to ensure the safety of all personnel-staff, clients and supply chain. We thank you for your understanding and support and we wish you all well during these uncertain times.

We are proud of all our people but now more than ever we are grateful for the way they have risen to the challenges and difficulties faced during this pandemic to keep the business operational and to minimise disruption to clients. Many have also gone out of their way to make selfless contributions to their communities during these uncertain times. To say thank you and to recognise these individuals, we have launched our Community Champion Awards, open to all employees who are volunteering for local organisations or the NHS to aid the national effort to combat COVID 19.

We are also ever grateful to all the individuals working within the NHS and other essential operations for providing exemplary care and vital services during this challenging time.

If you have any specific concerns please call 020 7837 6433 or email
