Survey Calendar

Most surveys and assessments have an optimal time during the year for them to be carried out, to achieve the best and most representative results. Carrying out activity during a sub-optimal period reduces the likelihood of the survey or assessment yielding representative results and may lead to incurring unnecessary costs by needing to repeat the work. Not all surveys and assessments are able to be carried out all year round, hibernation and the weather or seasons being the primary drivers for this.

Our calendar lists our most popular surveys and assessments. The calendar provides a useful tool in helping you plan your project in the most efficient way and to generate the specific timely outcomes you are looking for.
