COVID-19 Update – August 2020

August 12, 2020

The Government has re-activated the Alert Level 3 (AL3) lock-down for Auckland and Alert Level 2 (AL2) restrictions for the rest of New Zealand from 12pm Wednesday the 12th of August.

While the Government has advised that these restrictions are set for three days only, RCP is taking a prudent approach and planning for the possibility of a longer shut down period.

As such, the following protocols are being applied to our offices:


Auckland Office


All Other RCP Offices


While we are disappointed to be returning to operating restrictions, we have been preparing for this eventuality. We are familiar and well-versed in working remotely and being responsive to our clients and project partner’s immediate requirements.

We are taking this situation very seriously with an internal RCP COVID-19 response group meeting daily to monitor updates. This group is comprised of all RCP’s Directors and senior leadership team members, and are tasked with making fast, fact-based decisions on our operating policies and providing central resourcing and daily risk management advice to all project team leaders.

Our digital and communications systems are designed for this exact scenario and have been proven during the previous lock-down. We are happy to report they are currently functioning as expected.

Therefore, we are well positioned to maintain full-service continuity and have excellent capacity to meet current project requirements, as well as assisting you to meet the challenges of the current environment.

On behalf of RCP we appreciate your support and extend our own best wishes and support to you, your family and colleagues.

Best wishes,

Jeremy Hay &  Nick Beale

RCP Managing Directors
