For those who could not get to the fair we have a […]

We had the pleasure of attending Constructing Excellence’s ‘Walkabout’, which provided a fascinating insight into some of Gloucestershire’s historical buildings on Westgate Street. Cathedral Quarter Programme Manager, Claire Dovey-Evans, led the tour and talked about the regeneration and protection works for the improvement of 15 historic properties.

Top Tips For Improving Your Work Space

February 27, 2022 / By admin

Working from home became quite ‘the thing’ over the past couple of years due to the pandemic. From initially being an alien concept for a large proportion of the population, the video meeting setup and home office environment has become ‘the norm’ at an impressive pace – mainly because we had no other choice. Since […]

Failing Facade

RRA has been appointed to work on a Grade II Listed terraced building in Cheltenham’s central conservation area. Dating from the 1830s, the house is one of a pair of listed properties.

Glazing Up

October 20, 2021 / By admin

Introducing our second project in two months with high end glazing packages being installed.  It is an exciting time for any project to see all the windows and doors being fitted. Exciting, but also a ‘hold your breath’ critical moment as this is the point at which the envelope of the building is enclosed – […]

Marvelous Marble

October 6, 2021 / By admin

Choosing the finish for any project is important and can be more difficult when working with natural materials rather than manmade, due to the natural variation which can differ significantly even across a single piece. Often we are working from small samples showing only a fraction of the desired material. So, to visit Bristol Marble […]

October 1, 2021 / By admin

The Covid pandemic meant RRA, just like almost all companies in the UK – and across the world – could not have a 2020 Christmas Party. So, when MD, Mark Powles, suggested a RRA company trip to Center Parcs in 2021 to make up for missing our much loved Christmas ‘do’, we jumped at the […]
