We have today taken the decision to immediately cease all site-based survey work as well as implement a full remote working programme across all of our regional offices.
For us, the Government guidance is clear. We must all stay at home to play our part in limiting the spread of the virus. We hope this is a view that continues to be shared across our communities and industry.
We appreciate the impact that this will have on our clients and especially the part completed projects which we have needed to suspend. We thank everyone for their understanding and show of support to us. Where we can complete projects at home we will do so.
A big thank you to the entire Survey Solutions team for their solidarity and commitment over the last few weeks. We are determined to get through this together.
Whilst our survey work must stop for a while, we will continue to use social media to post updates and try to continue some things as much as we can.
Finally, we wish everyone across our company, clients and communities all the very best during these challenging times.
We want you to be aware that we are taking the risk of Coronavirus extremely seriously and are vigilantly implementing enhanced protocols to minimise the threat and potential effects. Since the outbreak, we have been following government guidelines very closely, making daily operational changes as directed by authorities and working hard to ensure the safety and well being of our team, clients, suppliers and local communities.
With a large and flexible team based over multiple locations we believe that we are well placed to mitigate the impact of Coronavirus on our business and able to continue to support our clients with the high quality service they expect from Survey Solutions.
We are aware that this is a fast moving, and evolving situation, so please rest assured that we will continue monitoring any updates and will respond quickly to advice from the government, public health authorities or medical professionals.
We work on projects of all shapes and sizes and back in November last year, we were delighted to be asked to support a local project, and one that came with a bit of a twist.
Local inventor Tony Fisher requested our services to help measure the worldâs largest usable Rubikâs cube. This isnât perhaps the sort of job you may expect us to get involved with but further demonstrates the range and versatility of services we can offer.
The cube measured 2.022m x 2.022m x 2.022m and took over 300 hours to build.
We are so pleased to have heard this week that Tony has now had this verified as a Guinness World Record. Congratulations from everyone at Survey Solutions!
We kicked off the New Year by holding our first ever company Engagement Day at Wyboston Lakes in Cambridgeshire.
Having enjoyed many years of success and growth it was a brilliant opportunity for all our teams from across the UK to come together and hear more about our exciting future plans.
Following a welcome from our CEO and founder James Cooper, Paul Singleton took us on a trip down memory lane recalling many of the major landmarks that the company has seen over the last 20 years.
November was a slightly more hairy month than usual for some of the Survey Solutions team as they participated in the Movember fund raising campaign.
We managed to exceed each target we set along the way and are so pleased to announce we raised a total of ÂŁ2126. Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to kindly sponsor and of course congratulations to all those that took part for not only raising money but building more awareness of menâs health issues.
Progress along the way was tracked with weekly photographs submitted and the final âtashesâ can be seen below.
