A message from Steve Foxley, Executive Director at the AMRC: 

"These are unprecedented times for us all and it’s important to keep you updated on how we are meeting the challenges of the Coronavirus outbreak.

"The AMRC is still open for business but we are continuing to follow the government’s guidance and are taking all the necessary precautions to ensure our number one priority; that our staff, customers and our colleagues stay safe.

"We have put measures in place to ensure this advice is followed by everyone and most of our teams are now successfully working from home and pressing on to deliver our project commitments as planned.

"All meetings are still going ahead and are taking place digitally using virtual meeting technology and conference calls where possible, rather than face-to-face meetings. If you have any enquiries or specific questions about your projects please get in touch with your contact at the AMRC in the usual way.

"We know this is a difficult time for everyone; that’s why we are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with our partners, customers and community and are keen to offer our help and support in any way possible."


Our top priority is always the health and safety of staff, customers and visitors, and those who make up our wider community across the globe.

    • We are closely following the latest advice and guidance issued by the UK Government, Public Health England and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. We will continue to take all appropriate and necessary steps, as required by the official advice, to keep our community safe.
    • We want to reassure you that we are doing all we can to plan for all possible circumstances. The AMRC Management Board is carefully monitoring the situation around the recent outbreak and the university's Coronavirus Management Group is meeting regularly to prepare contingency plans to manage any precautions we may have to take as the situation evolves.
    • As the situation changes, the university will continue to issue any further advice and guidance as it becomes available, so we encourage everyone to read the information contained in the links at the top of the page and to follow the instructions given.
