River Clyde Homes

It is with pleasure to provide a reference for RVA Group, who provided all Civil and Structural, CDM Health and Safety and Project Management services to River Clyde Homes for the implosive blowdown of Octavia Court in Greenock.

River Clyde Homes found RVA Group service in terms of client service and design were to the very highest standard and extremely professional at all stages of the project with a proactive approach to project management, keeping us informed on progress and also very efficient in addressing any issues that arose during the project. RVA Group brought to the project a wealth of knowledge and experience which was efficiently employed and given freely to River Clyde Homes staff involved in the first ever implosive blowdown of a multi storey block of flats to be held in the Inverclyde area.

RCH found that RVA Group performed as a valued and integral member of the team that delivered the project on schedule and within budget. River Clyde Homes hope to use these honed skills again in future commissions and projects.

William Sutton Housing Association Ltd

The project has been delivered on time and below budget and RVA’s in depth pre-demolition evacuation procedures planning process has been exemplarily. The decision to demolish by controlled explosion within a very limited site area was advised to us by RVA as the safest and least disruptive method of works. Other consultants originally interviewed dismissed this option outright, but I am sure that all local organisations, emergency services and local residents would join me in congratulating RVA on making the right decision and on a job very well done.
