25th April 2020Uncategorised

The management at RV Dart have been working tirelessly on return to work planning whilst the company has effectively been in hibernation following the lock down measures referred to in our previous post.

We are pleased to confirm that we have published our Covid-19 policy and risk assessment enabling us, with our clients agreement, to re-commence some sites from the 24th April with all others following on a carefully planned and phased basis.

We have also developed a head office Covid-19 policy which facilitates some staff to be office based again but on a rota basis.

The above now enables us to re-commence suspended contracts and to work closely with our clients and supply chain to complete the delivery of these.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our staff ,client’s and supply chain for their assistance and support during these difficult times.

Covid-19 Statement 6/4/20

6th April 2020News

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 guidelines 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 lockdown 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 email (0771 767 8786

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]
