We have established a Coronavirus Contingency Planning Group to oversee and co-ordinate our preparations to deal with any disruption which could potentially arise as the situation develops. The Group is meeting regularly as the situation continues and as the health and wellbeing of our staff and community is our highest priority, as a result of the Coronavirus (Covid19) outbreak, we are applying some precautionary arrangements to safeguard all.
RMP will continue to operate and provide clients with most services. All office based design work will continue as normal.
We will not be attending face to face meetings. We have access to all normal on-line team meeting systems, Microsoft Teams, skype etc.
Environmental site survey’s, road rail, industrial etc will continue, provided our risk assessment confirms little or no interaction required. Clients should be aware that for some noise sources, representative surveys may not be possible due to reduced source activity levels.
Construction site testing and inspection will be risk assessed on a case by case basis. RMP normally require plots being tested are vacated during testing and this will more strictly enforced to achieve the best result and protect our and your staff. We will be looking to only attend site when no contact with other people can be guaranteed. We will require clients to complete a health and safety questionnaire prior to attending site.
A number of staff will be home working during this period. The direct office phone numbers of our consultants (which are forwarded to their mobile phones) are available in their individual profile page, on our main Contact page and below. All emails to firstname.lastname@example.org will be forwarded to the relevant consultant and responded to.
For each project we will agree realistic deadlines with clients and keep clients up-to-date with any issues impacting delivery times.
We want to keep our clients as fully up-to-date as possible so we will continue to monitor the situation and provide as much clarity as possible, when appropriate, on any future timelines, subject to the ongoing medical advice.
The forthcoming period looks certain to challenge our society as a whole, and we understand that our clients will be facing their own challenges at this time.
The measures we have put in place are precautionary. We therefore ask for your full support with this guidance as we all have a shared responsibility to minimise the risk of exposure and protect our individual and collective health.

As of 18 October Mark Irish will no longer have to fight through busy traffic in the pouring rain to get to our head office as he is returning to the warmer climes of his native Australia.
We take this opportunity to thank Mark again for his hard work and commitment to RMP over the past decade, and we wish him all the best in this new adventure.
RMP are proud to have 3 of our consultants Eleni Kontesidou, Russell Macdonald and Nicola Symington teaching Building Acoustics and Sound Insulation (BSV11147) module. This compliments RMP’s teaching responsibilities for the MSc in Architectural Technology at Edinburgh Napier University, and the Institute of Acoustics (IoA) Distance Learning Diploma.
We are pleased to welcome David Chapman to RMP as Senior Consultant managing our French team while Juliette Paris-Newton is on maternity leave.
RMP are proud to have added support to the draft development of the ANC’s Residential Design Guide.
RMP and Edinburgh Napier University were delighted to host the IOA Scottish Branch at our premises. After enjoying a Burns supper of haggis, neeps and tatties, visitors viewed a film screening of “In Pursuit of Silence”. This was followed by a Q&A.
