TRICS Consortium Limited is pleased to announce that we are now able to resume our SAM survey programme.
Therefore, it is our intention to resume with SAM site visits from August 2020, with surveys resuming from 1st October 2020 until the end of November. This means that new SAM survey agreements can now be raised. However, our initial priority is to contact clients who had previously requested surveys in 2020, which were postponed in March, to assess what their current project situations are. Once we have a better understanding we can plan for the possible addition of new surveys. So, although we can raise new agreements, please note that we cannot guarantee that all requests for Autumn 2020 surveys will be fulfilled.
Also note that the deadline for raising new agreements for potential Autumn 2020 surveys is 1st October 2020, with any subsequent agreements raised being based on potential Spring 2021 surveys. Any site visits previously undertaken for surveys that were subsequently postponed are now void, so in every case we will need to start the SAM process from scratch.
Our top priority is the safety of our staff and everyone else involved in our surveys. Therefore, we shall assess our ability to mitigate risk of Covid-19 on a case-by-case basis, which may mean that some surveys will need to be provisionally scheduled for Spring 2021, whilst more straightforward surveys (with minimal risk and requiring less face-to-face interaction) could go ahead in Autumn 2020, again depending on our capacity.
As I am sure everyone will appreciate, this is a fluid and evolving situation, and although we are pleased to be able to resume our SAM survey programme, this is subject to change should the Covid-19 situation in the UK worsen and new official guidance issued accordingly.
If you do decide to progress with SAM surveys, with the agreement of your own client, the risk of any challenge to the validity of the final results (due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation in the UK) will be down to yourselves, and will not be the responsibility of TRICS Consortium Limited.
