COVID-19 Response

As an organization AO is responding quickly to the changing circumstances brought forth by COVID-19. In compliance with Governor Newsom’s announcement on Thursday, March 19th, we have shifted our entire workforce to remote working scenarios – an event that our team anticipated and was well preparing for. Throughout this period AO remains fully operational and we continue to work as efficiently as possible to minimize any disruption of services. We continue to serve our clients, support our team, remain connected, and adjust accordingly as the situation evolves. As always, if you have any questions please reach out to us via email at info@aoarchitects.com, phone, or social media.
