    Our Work Continues – A COVID-19 Update from VRH
    All of us at VRH hope that you, your fellow employees and all your families are healthy and remain so in the weeks and months to come. We know that each day brings new challenges and uncertainty to both our professional and personal lives as the country grapples with the coronavirus pandemic.

    What does remain certain is our commitment to providing both our clients and partners with the same level of service that you have come to expect from us over the years. We believe that our pledge to ensure operational continuity applies not only to your business but to ours as well.

    Under the guidelines set forth by the governors of both New York and New Jersey, and by extension, the Port Authority of NY and NJ, construction has been declared an essential business that may keep its workplaces open and functioning. VRH is doing just that.

    We are, of course, taking enhanced measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees, partners and others they may interact with, including the general public at some of our ongoing work sites. We are closely monitoring and following the guidelines issued by both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). We have expanded our OSHA-compliant VRHVigilant safety and security program to include specific training to address workplace safety during the pandemic.

    We have also taken several measures that allow us to enhance safety while enabling us to continue our support for your business:

    • Our entire staff remains at work and will continue to be after the pandemic is over. Weeks ago, we implemented a Partial Work-at-Home Program for our employees with alternating schedules for working within our offices. We are fully operational.
    • We have technology in-place for all employees to work remotely, collaborate and conduct virtual meetings, thus minimizing the need for face-to-face contact.
    • Our ability to work at a distance is augmented by our proprietary VBuild system that allows us to communicate both internally and externally with clients and partners. VBuild enables all of us to share and view all types of project-related documents such as schedules, drawings, RFI’s, photos, EarthCam links, Matterport scans, submittals, etc.

    During this difficult time, we want you to know that just as we have been available to serve you in the past, you can still count on us to support your needs in the months ahead. Our offices are open, our staff is hard at work whether present in the office or working remotely, and we remain dedicated to providing all our clients and partners with the high level of service and care that has characterized our business for more than 61 years. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Most important, we wish you and your families continued good health.

    ICF: Full Aviation Recovery to Take Four Years
    by David Ward | May 20, 2020

    The global consulting and technology services firm ICF International now projects that full commercial aviation recovery from the devastation of COVID-19 won’t begin until “beyond” 2021, adding some regions like Asia-Pacific will likely return to pre-crisis traffic sooner than others.

    “We are forecasting global passenger demand to recover in about four years, with the recovery led by domestic and regional markets, and long-haul traffic lagging a year or two behind,” the ICF report, COVID-19 Air Passenger Recovery Phases and Forecasts, concluded.
