Total Petrochemicals UK Ltd

The Polystryrene Plant of Total Petrochemicals UK stopped production in 2013. The site was to be demolished and a small team of employees were retained to oversee the project. After some initial training in demolition it became apparent that specialist assistance was required to help our staff but also in order to comply with legislation in terms of competence and CDM regulations.

After competitive tender, RVA were appointed to the role of CDM-C for the project.

RVA provided a very competent team of staff to see us through the hazards, they worked alongside our site knowledge with their demolition expertise. RVA ensured that the demolition contractor followed appropriate method statements and completed risk assessments.

I would recommend the use of RVA in the role of CDM-C.

Invista (Germany)

RVA acted as project engineers and specialist demolition consulting engineers in our D&R project. They are one of the best, most professional companies we have dealt with and we would have no hesitation in recommending them.

RVA worked closely and collaboratively with our teams, paying attention to our interests and not losing focus on the overall target. We cannot recall a situation where RVA didn’t react flexibly or innovatively to adjust their work plans and resources to the benefit of our project. The team always provided us with a high quality service and fulfilled our safety, health and environmental expectations excellently.

BASF plc

We appointed RVA Group to project manage the dismantling and demolition of our polymer production facilities in Kaipiainen, Finland. We had prior experience of working with RVA in the North East of England, and employed the company once again on the strength of the team’s specialist industry knowledge, and our need for a thoughtful, coordinated and attentive approach on the live Kaipiainen site.

RVA’s experience and professionalism ensured a safe and smooth project delivery. All work was completed on time and to budget and, most importantly, without incident. We would not hesitate to recommend RVA’s services in future for this type of work.

Ineos Vinyls

RVA was contracted to INEOS to provide specialist engineering consultancy and CDM coordinator services for the dismantling and demolition works at the INEOS Vinyls Barry Site, Penarth, Wales. This involved managing the demolition contractor and its activities to meet the requirements of the demolition contract between INEOS and the demolition contractor, and to ensure the work was completed in accordance with appropriate legislation, and within exemplary SHE standards.

The RVA work was in three phases, Phase 1 ‘Project Identification & Development’ , Phase 2 ‘Enabling & Pre Site Works’ and Phase 3 ‘Project Execution’.

RVA has proven themselves to be an experienced, competent and professional organisation.

Specifically, RVA set up formal monitoring and control processes to ensure that accurate and reliable information was presented at regular intervals covering all the key deliverables of the project with particular emphasis on the demolition contractor’s SHE performance, completion of key activities versus programme, minimisation of unjustified variations and control of approvals.

As the client, I was kept well informed via various communication channels. Any issues or incidents were highlighted quickly and dealt with competently and professionally.

I believe that RVA managed and controlled the dismantling and demolition works and overall project competently, which enabled the delivery of a safe and effective demolition of the Barry plant, within the strict requirements of the contract.

I pass on my thanks to the way that all 3 parties Contractor/RVA/Ineos worked together on site for the Barry demolition. I was genuinely delighted with the work and cooperation…and the way [you] went about finding solutions, working together and rising to the challenges that these projects invariably raise… things were dealt with in a professional and pragmatic way.

BASF plc

I am writing to express my appreciation for the way that RVA carried out the project management and CDM Coordinator roles on the recent dismantling project at Seal Sands. The project was completed safely, on time and to budget, RVA’s contribution was a major component in this successful outcome. Your team on site worked closely with myself and the demolition contractor in a spirit of partnership that helped to ensure a good working relationship with all parties throughout the execution of the project.
