Demolition and dismantling
From overseeing the total demolition of an entire processing plant, to the careful salvaging of individual items and even the complete dismantling of assets for reinstallation elsewhere, RVA’s objective is always to ensure a robust project delivery, regardless of clients’ experience of such works.
We therefore offer a comprehensive portfolio of demolition and dismantling services, ranging from the full management of these often high hazard projects, through to the more administrative side of the process.
So, whether you are looking for a principal designer, or some engineering expertise to complement your existing scheme of work, talk to us about the value we may be able to add…
Decommissioning and demolition of Derwent Power Station, Spondon, UK
Following the completion of the above project, I would like to thank the RVA team in helping us to deliver an incident-free outcome, within the budget cost and on programme.
We recognised from the outset that the removal of hazardous materials and demolition of the massive and complex structures was outside our company’s core business activities and hence we sought specialist support.
Good housekeeping is key to the successful progress of demolition and dismantling projects, and an audit trail of information, key documentation and dialogue forms a core part of RVA’s contract administration support.
Such administrative services include managing internal and external stakeholder requirements, which sees RVA’s experienced engineers present to or chair discussions with management teams and personnel, community groups, local authorities, enforcing bodies and the emergency services.
We can also assume responsibility for activity such as ongoing cost control, by structuring financial milestones from which to measure ongoing contract visibility and spend certainty.
5 steps towards the perfect ‘plant dismantling for re-erection’ project
At a time when materials reuse and recycling is high on the general environmental agenda, it’s no surprise that the dismantling of plants for re-erection, remains a popular consideration for operators. And that’s before the possible financial advantages are considered.
However, there are naturally numerous criteria to thoroughly evaluate, to ensure that such a dismantling project represents a safe, cost-effective and environmentally sound route for the plant...
Physical, virtual or hybrid decommissioning support
When it comes to our provision of decommissioning services, we can adopt varied deployment methods, including a physical on-site presence, virtual support, or a hybrid approach. Exactly what is feasible will depend on the scope of work involved, and decisions will always be made on the grounds of safety. However, where possible we will actively seek to make best use of technology and remote or geographically diverse resources, to reduce the unnecessary carbon impact of travel, and keep programmes progressing fluidly whatever else may be going on in the world.
