28 February 2021

Following the announcement by the Prime Minster that the greater Auckland region will re-enter Alert Level 3 from 0600 on 28 February 2021 and the rest of the country into Alert Level 2, CKL wish to update you on our business response.

Our Auckland team are working remotely

Under Alert Level 3, our Auckland based team will be working from home. Our team members remain fully contactable and our IT systems allow for them to continue project work remotely.

The best way to contact our Auckland team members is by phone, email, or MS Teams. We will continue to answer phone calls made to our office line at 09 524 7029 and we can easily transfer you to any individual staff member.

Our Auckland office will be closed to clients and other visitors until at least Monday 8 March 2021.

We can still undertake field work including site visits, engineering inspections/testing and land surveying under Alert Level 3. We have implemented additional health and safety measures when working on sites. This includes maintaining separation between workers, recording who is working together, limiting interaction between groups of workers, disinfecting surfaces and equipment, and maintaining high hygiene standards. If you require further detail please request a copy of our Safe Operating Procedure by emailing [email protected].

Our Waikato and Bay of Plenty offices remain open

Under Alert Level 2, our offices in Hamilton, Te Awamutu and Tauranga remain open and operating largely as normal but with additional health and safety measures in place.

Our preference is that virtual meetings are held where possible. We can host you on the MS Teams platform and we can guide you through that if you are not familiar.

If you do require a face-to-face meeting at one of our Waikato or Bay of Plenty offices, there are some additional health and safety requirements you need to be aware of:
  1. Please do not visit us if you are sick; if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19; or if you have been exposed to COVID-19.
  2. We would appreciate if you could please contact us in advance of your visit so that we know to expect you, and so that we can plan for your visit.
  3. When you arrive at reception you will be asked to sign-in and out using your mobile phone on a system called CHECKIN-19. CHECKIN-19 is a quick and easy QR code contact tracing system that you can access from your internet browser on your mobile phone. If you do not have a mobile phone or do not want to use CHECKIN-19, we will record your details manually. We also have a QR code available for the Government’s NZ COVID Tracer app.
  4. Hand sanitiser will be available at reception and in our meeting rooms. Surfaces in our meeting rooms will be cleaned regularly.
  5. To ensure a 1m separation between individuals, meetings will be limited to a maximum of 10 attendees.
