Following recent developments and government advice, we would like to reassure you that we are taking measures to protect our clients, staff and their families from coronavirus. In addition to government advice, we have updated our working practices to follow the advice from the leading industry body for our profession, the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM). On 7th May 2020, CIEEM published a guidance document on how to safely conduct ecological surveys and assessments during the Covid-19 outbreak, available here.
We will be reviewing survey appointments on a case-by-case basis, however there are many circumstances under which it will not be possible for us to complete surveys. We can only complete work on site where we are certain that we are able to do so without putting our staff or anyone on site at unnecessary risk.
In the meantime, our staff are still working from home, so are able to provide quotes for any future survey work, with a view to completing these surveys as soon as it is safe to do so. As we approach what is usually our busiest time of year, we are mindful that this is an ever-changing situation and are keeping a close watch on both government and CIEEM advice and will keep this page updated with our response. We ask that you get in touch as soon as possible to discuss your survey requirements for the season so that we can prepare to undertake survey work when restrictions are lifted.
We hope that all of our clients remain safe and well during this difficult time.
