Covid-19 Statement 6/4/20

6th April 2020Uncategorised

Please note that following the Government’s announcement on 23rd March  relating to precautions and restrictions we ceased our site operations with immediate effect.

We felt that guideline and precautions outlined by the government in order for ‘construction work to continue’ were not practicable given the nature of works we were undertaking at that time and that in continuing we were potentially putting our employees ,sub-contractors and other third parties at risk.

We are in liaison with our clients and supply chain to manage the situation and in the meantime we confirm our off site functions continue in regards to tendering and other normal business operations.

We are currently developing a detailed Covid-19 risk and method statement amalgamating the Governments latest guidelines plus our clients in readiness for a site re-commencement after the current three week semi lock -down period or later as may be dictated by the circumstances at that time.

Any query in regards to this can be addressed to our MD Colin Andrews by phone or e mail (07717678786

New lease of life for Church

13th January 2020News

A new lease of life for the Baptist Church, Winchester.

Gordon Lockhart, the church secretary, said: “For a number of years we have been battling with damp and made the decision in 2018 to rectify this issue. We appointed local architects Seymour Bainbridge to prepare the necessary documentation and in March 2019 commissioned RV Dart and Son Builders of Romsey to undertake the works for us. “The work involved removing all the old render, allowing the elevation to dry out before new render was applied and decorated. As with any work to old buildings, there were surprises along the way such as finding there was very little structural support to the balcony.”   [Reported in The Hampshire Chronicle]
