MYA Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Tuesday 24th March 2020 

Over the past two weeks our team have been working from their homes and putting into place our emergency plan. We continue to work on projects that will define the future of catering and hospitality in our client sites, from strategic planning to design detailing. A huge ‘thank you’ to all our clients across a range of sectors who have continued to support our company in these challenging times. We promise to deliver world-class solutions and great value.

For our independent education sector clients, we are posting a number of industry updates on the ISBA website. Please do call if we can be of any assistance.

For our business and industry clients we offer unparalleled experience in contingency and continuity planning, and assistance with any contractual review requirements.

In the private sector, our retail-led clients can expect total commitment to cost reduction and income generation with community-led options.

We are also working through all the recently announced government legislation and financial assistance, so we can provide expert, solution-based advice for optimum uptake in the hospitality sector.

Our team are available for meetings and advice; our cutting-edge IT infrastructure allows us to collaborate, meet, create, problem-solve and share. We have taken the decision to offer complimentary advice to companies who are vulnerable and struggling. The hospitality sector has been severely disrupted by coronavirus.

We have been working to protect this vibrant sector and the many talented individuals who work in it. Please do call our team if we can be of assistance.

Meanwhile, we wish everyone a safe and healthy period over the coming weeks.

Going Green & Sustainability

Unless you have a coherent green strategy, your development plans will run into opposition on a local and national level, and your customers will vote against all your development plans. Especially the younger generation, who are vital to the future of your business.
