Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
In the wake of historic flooding in Colorado, the Transition Specialists at Ellipse Group have developed a three-stage process to help businesses mobilize an action plan. The massive flooding, in addition to displacing thousands of residents, has critically affected businesses throughout the region, leaving them scrambling to salvage furniture, equipment and workspace.
“Our hearts go out to all the people and businesses who have been affected,” said Lynne Sheridan, Ellipse Group Principal. “It’s times like these that we really need to roll up our sleeves and go to work.” That has meant mobilizing immediate resources and logistical support for their clients in healthcare, higher education and the built environment. “In the event of flooding or other unforeseen event, a temporary work-around is critical to maintaining productivity,” said Design Director Rebecca Tanner, LEED AP. “But it always begs the question: what’s our long-term solution?”
To that end, Ellipse Group has developed the following sequence of steps to help companies find a path forward when catastrophe strikes:
1. Assess the Situation
2. Implement Short-Term Solutions
3. Develop a Long-Term Strategy
These steps reflect Ellipse Group’s approach for clients from SMBs to national corporations on preparedness and crisis management. “We understand the corporate culture,” said Senior Project Manager Lacy Romunno, LEED AP. “We’re able to interface seamlessly between management and their IT staff, employees and customers.” Many such volatile situations involve clean-up, hazmat, and decontamination operations, along with other more common design and relocation services, which the firm provides for such clients as the State of Colorado: “It was because of their assistance,” said Donetta Davidson, former Secretary of State, “…that a well-constructed and designed office has been provided for my staff and the citizens of Colorado.”
It’s a sentiment echoed by their clients in the architecture, engineering and construction (A/E/C) sector: “With Ellipse Group's customer service, organization, and coordination,” said Sonia Riggs, former Executive Director of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Colorado. “I knew I had an advocate all the way through the process.”
