ICW update regarding Covid-19

Posted on March 27, 2020

In light of recent developments which are escalating at a rapid pace, we would like to share with you an important update on our efforts to protect our staff, clients and communities against the tangible threat of Covid-19. 

We made the decision to temporarily close ICW Group head office and regional offices on Monday 23rd March, with all staff now working remotely. This will remain the case for at least the next three weeks. 

We have invested in robust IT and communications systems that have enabled us to keep all usual lines of communication open, please continue to engage with us and we will do what we can to support you through this challenging time. 

In line with government advice regarding building sites, as things stand our surveying teams will support clients with essential projects or final certificates only where is it safe to do so and adhering strictly to enhanced safety procedures. From close of business on Friday 27th March, we will pause our inspection activity and surveyors will not make any further site visits. We will continue to closely monitor and comply with government advice and will share any updates with you in the coming days and weeks. 

We understand that these are challenging times for all of us. The safety of our staff, clients and communities remains our utmost priority. Stay safe and look after each other.
