Specialist power and water consulting firm Entura has shown how it is adapting to the changes brought by the coronavirus pandemic, stating it has opened ‘hundreds’ of new offices (albeit one-person offices).
“At Entura, we’re constantly looking for new ways to innovate, communicate and ensure we continue to deliver exceptional service to our clients,” the company said in a statement.
“Being in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic is no exception to this – in fact, we are now proving that with hundreds of new offices across the Indo-Pacific – in Australia, India, Laos and the Philippines – this means that we’re still just a click away from our clients.”

The company says it has been working creatively and collaboratively with its clients to look at ways it can continue or start projects, carefully mitigating risks associated with site visits.
“In one instance, we used the resources of a drone and the client’s own on-ground personnel to direct the collation of data and to work through modelling scenarios together,” the company revealed.
“In another instance we became the conduit for communications between our client and regulatory authorities, achieving a mutually beneficial result and ensuring all parties were aware of the constraints now being faced and how best to deal with them.

“We’re talking more than ever before and we’re collaborating and trying new ways to achieve successful outcomes, despite the obvious challenges right now.
“Sure, our new offices may consist of only one person in each, but we’re loving the commute!”
