A Note From Clint – December 2020
2020: The Year of COVID-19
Attempting to put words to 2020 is like the year itself, where did it start, how did it unfold and how will it finish? 2020 will go down in history as the most disruptive year since the end of World War II and for many, will be a year of loss in so many ways.
With regard to Health and Safety, as Australians we are fortunate to live in a country that has had the ability to isolate ourselves from the global impact of COVID-19 and yet economically, the impact of COVID-19 has crippled 2020 and will no doubt impact 2021 for many businesses. INTREC 2020 has been a test of our culture, ‘stand downs’, ‘lock downs’ and COVID-19 tests have become part of the ‘new norm’. Our team have adapted to the challenges of COVID-19, and united as a community to support each other in what has been a very dynamic environment.
I am very proud of the way our staff have respected the situation and supported our clients throughout 2020. Whilst the past year has been disruptive, INTREC have delivered over 150 projects with many projects becoming our new flagships. 2020 has been a year of evolution for INTREC, where we have expanded our offering through design and demonstrated a character of strength and stability across the industry.
I look forward to the challenges of 2021, and embrace the new opportunities that this ‘new norm’ brings.
