To our Faithful Partners and Clients,
We wanted to give you an update on our operations regarding Governor Pritzker’s Executive Order. This Executive Order closes all non-essential businesses in the State and mandates social distancing and stay at home policies with the intent to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Additionally, the Order details the Essential Businesses and operations allowed during this period extending from March 21, 2020 to April 7, 2020.
Under Governor Pritzker’s Executive Order, Waldman Engineering Consultants, Inc. is an Essential Business. Section 1. Article 9 states:
“individuals may leave their residence to provide any services or perform any work necessary to offer, provision, operate, maintain and repair Essential Infrastructure.”
Furthermore, Article 9 states that Essential Infrastructure includes “housing construction” and “building management and maintenance.” Section 1. Article 12 further expands on Essential Businesses and Operations listing “Critical trades” including “Building and Construction Tradesmen” as well as:
“other service providers who provide services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of residences, Essential Activities, and Essential Businesses and Operations”
In alignment with this Executive Order, and in conjunction and coordination with our clients, and business partners, WEC will continue operating on existing construction projects—doing so in accordance with social distancing policies.
WEC is in the business of providing engineering and architectural services to help building owners and managers maintain and operate safe buildings and shelter. We are also working to be socially responsible to our employees, business partners, and clients. We believe that we can help each other through this crisis and work collaboratively within the parameters of the Governor’s Executive Order to continue projects and achieve a desirable outcome for everyone involved.
The best way to contact us at this time is by email. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding this Executive Order or our services.
