Build your dream home – We are still here and very active
As the impact of COVID-19 is felt across Australia, we talk to David and Annette Kirby of Stroud Homes Melbourne North about the current situation.
They explain how business will proceed ‘as usual’, while still following the ever-changing rules and regulations.
And more importantly how as a local business, ‘we’re all in this together’.
We can still meet clients by appointment. We also have access to the latest technology to assist us in virtual meeting if clients are unable to meet in person.
Our staff is now working from home with meetings and document signing via internet.
At the time of this being written, it’s very much building as usual. However, restrictions seem to move quicker in Victoria then in some other states.
According to new Government rules on social distancing, we have altered the way we take people through our Display Homes and Display Centre.
We can take one family through at a time into either our office or one of our builds.
Of course we’re also following the rules of washing our hands and wiping off working areas more frequently to create a safe environment.
We are supporting our staff by working from home, in fact, Mark our Salesperson is working from his family home in WA.
As we all know borders are closed and he wanted to support his family. In turn we wanted to support both him and his family.
Mark is available for meetings by internet and phone. David will do face to face meetings and site visits where required.
Luckily, there are a range of excellent communication tools nowadays for us to utilise.
These are technologies that we have been using for a while and are confident in:
Yes, the current restrictions still allow us to continue our builds at this stage. However, this may change at any time pending Government restrictions.
We want to reassure our customers if that happens we will be up and building as soon as those restrictions are lifted.
At the moment we are working as per guidelines keeping one trade on site at a time and adhering to the social distancing regulations.
Rest assured the team at Stroud Homes Melbourne North will continue to forge ahead with our customers and building their dream home.
We understand the need to be cautious at the moment, it is however a great opportunity to take advantage of the extra time available to you to work on your new home.
Ensure you have strategies in place so when we get to the other side of all this you will be ready to go.
