Subject: Refurbishment works / "moving" activity during the next month
All - please exercise extra caution as you move around the building as there will be contractors on site carrying out works associated with the forthcoming moves. There will also be deliveries of materials at various points around the building
Thank you for your co-operation
Putting aside the inverted commas in the subject line, which for me always has echoes of someone bending their fingers in the air as they "say" the word, so as to point out that it's not what they actually "mean", what does this email mean? Do people need to be warned that if there's stuff happening as they walk past it, they should not walk into it? Is this a "Please look where you're going"? Is this a "Sorry for any disruption caused"? It's not. There's no apology for disruption. I think it means one of two things:
Surely, nobody in this building needs a patronising email to tell them to watch out for builders. Surely people should be treated with respect. Here's how I would have worded the email:
We have works going on in the building for the next few weeks. This will involve contractors working around the building and receiving deliveries. Many apologies for any disruption this may cause. If you find it difficult to work at your desk with the disruption, then please let me know and we'll look at the possibility of temporarily relocating you to a quieter area.
Of course that would require the person organising the works to give a shit.
Which I doubt.
