We are also very pleased to announce that our office refurbishment is now fully completed. During this work we installed a new state-of-the-art air exchange system which completely replaces the office air volume five times per hour – making it equivalent to an outdoor environment. All meetings at our offices observe the latest COVID government protocols and the new air-exchange system helps make our office a safer place for our staff and visitors alike. We look forward to meeting with you in person at the earliest opportunity.
