The job was a fast track summer holiday project at the Shakespeare Junior School, Eastleigh. This was a demolition of an existing covered external space between two buildings. The project then consisted of the formation of a new extension to link the two buildings, providing a new entrance, lobby, reception, medical room and teaching / circulation space.  The first two images at the top are taken of the old covered external space.  The lower two photographs show the completed new works.shakespear2shakespeare-school1

Our MD Goes Green

There is always something going on at RV Dart. Colin, our Managing Director recently purchased a plugin ‘hybrid’ car which means that the car uses more than one means of propulsion. This type of  car uses a normal petrol engine with an electric motor. The advantage of using a hybrid car is that it uses less fuel and emits less CO2 emissions than most conventional cars. Running cleaner with better mileage adds up to being an environmentally friendly vehicle.

Winchester Cathedral

We thought you might enjoy this snapshot of RV Dart working today on the Presbytery ceiling at the Winchester Cathedral. It was great to be part of a team working on a building over 900 years old.
