The wellness of our respective communities is everyone’s top priority as we all work together to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The health and safety of BKM’s employees and partners are of the utmost importance. Currently, we are still operating as normal and all of us at BKM are committed to working together on your projects throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to this health crisis and the mitigation steps the CDC and the State of Maryland have recommended, BKM has taken the following steps to maintain the health of our employees while we continue to operate as normal: BKM employees are currently equipped and allowed to telecommute as needed. We will continue to maintain strong communication within BKM and with our clients. If in the event your project may experience a delay, we will contact you as soon as possible. We are encouraging our employees to hold meetings via teleconferencing to limit the amount of social interaction. When meetings and site visits are required, we are following the CDC guidelines for “social distancing” for the safety of our clients and employees. At the present time we have closed our office to all visitors and guests. This is a fluid situation and we will keep you informed should we need to alter our approach. We will be accessible throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and strive to provide the same level of quality and collaboration that you are familiar with from all of us at BKM. We will be in full communication with you throughout this time and encourage you to reach out should you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your continued support of BKM. James L.
