Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Company Statement

We wish to assure all customers, suppliers and other stakeholders in our business that we have implemented a robust Coronavirus response and business continuity plan.

Foremost is the welfare of our employees and how we ensure their behaviour is in line with government direction to support the strategy of smoothing out the rate of infection across the nation in order to minimise impact on vital health services.

We are fortunate in that our business has well developed IT and communications resources to enable a substantial portion of our people to operate effectively from home. Additionally the environment of surveying assignments are naturally lower in transmission risk due to being outdoors and in open areas.

As far as communication is concerned our sales, operations, support and management teams are fully contactable through the normal channels of switchboard, email and mobile phones so please do not hesitate to contact us .

We believe it is important to consider the specific risk factors associated with each workplace situation as it evolves and this way we can take measured informed decisions, working with other stakeholders, to ensure we can maintain as much productivity, and normality as possible.

Naturally we are practicing social distancing where practical such as virtual rather than face to face meetings and have moved our offices on to skeleton staff rota’s in order to minimise human contact but to maintain vital operational access for equipment and IT services.

Please see the attached link here with further details on our measures in effect.

Naturally we are responding to the fast changing situation regarding governmental and health advice but are determined to continue to operate where we can safely.

We are very pleased with the drawings. For conservation recording the features have been surveyed in detail and drawn with clarity. It was particularly useful to have photographs beside the drawings of some of the details. The suite of drawings is very comprehensive and well presented. We appreciate the effort that went into them.

We recently engaged the services of Murphy Surveys Ltd to undertake live monitoring of the Luas Line on a project in Dublin City Centre. Due to the proximity of the Luas lines to the double basement excavation, a detailed methodology and monitoring proposal was required. Shane and his team developed a methodology and carried out AMS track monitoring, precise level surveying, inclinometer readings and vibration monitoring during the course of our works. Murphy Surveys completed this work to a high standard from start to finish and we look forward to working with them again in the future.

The survey was very well managed without disruption to tenants. The survey was completed on time and we were very impressed with the professional approach and follow up. We would be pleased to consider Murphy Surveys for similar work in the future.
