Regarding N51/51a demolition; RVA did a superb job and saved us a lot of time and money – no additional claims on a competitive bid package is not bad.

The feed back from our site personnel is that this has been an extremely successful project in both execution and the relationships built with all who came in to contact with the project team.
This outcome is a testament to the work, effort and commitment shown by all involved in the project.
…the role of planning supervisor proved an invaluable assistance to Novartis Grimsby. Attention to detail due to the contamination issues…and all associated health and safety issues …. in all cases carried out in full. One of the highlights was the close working relationship adopted between yourselves and the Novartis team… which had a hands on non-adversarial approach. The fees involved in employing RVA based on quality and content of the service provided were well justified………
……..I thought it only right that I sent you a letter congratulating RVA on their excellent performance throughout the project… This has been a £3.2m project delivered ahead of time and under budget….if we have any further demolition projects we would certainly use your services again.
I would like to take this opportunity again to thank you and your team at RVA for the work that you have performed in clearing the Hallam and Central Melting Plant site here at Ilkeston. This is the second time that we have used your company and the service that we have received was exemplary. It is absolutely essential on any demolition project that health and safety is the priority and your team has clearly delivered in this regard. We have benefited hugely from the resource and skill that you have applied to managing the demolition project as this allows the team at Saint-Gobain PAM UK to concentrate on our own ongoing business.
Your teams are always of a very high standard and I have very much enjoyed the close working relationship that we have developed with RVA. It ensures that we at Saint-Gobain PAM UK are kept fully informed of progress and any issues arising on the site, and they have also been invaluable in keeping a close control on the costs of the contractor.
RVA made a valuable input to our project in both the demolition and remediation phases, including unstinting support through some difficult periods.
Essential contributions were made by RVA in the crucial aspects of contractor appointment, contract management and H&S coordination in accordance with the CDM Regulations. Procedures for pre-qualification, selection and appointment of contractors in competitive tender were well-structured and intelligently applied. As a result we had contracts which were unambiguous, clearly understood by both parties and stood up well to potentially contentious situations. Regular site progress meetings to a strongly structured agenda were well run in a cooperative atmosphere, and detailed comprehensive minutes were quickly available.
At the start of the programme RVA were unknown to Nufarm. Their appointment has however been fully justified and I would have no hesitation in recommending RVA for future similar projects.
