Riggotts is rapidly becoming the ‘go-to’ company for television production firms needing lines marked or surfaces coated. At the end of 2013, it was the makers of Coronation Street who got in touch wanting a car park adjacent to the famous set in Manchester to be marked. Then at the start of 2014 Lime Pictures, makers of Hollyoaks, called Riggotts with an urgent brief to mark out an ambulance bay on the set of the popular Channel 4 soap in Liverpool.
Riggotts were happy to oblige and sent a team to complete the job quickly and with the minimum of fuss, working around the production company’s busy film schedule.
“We did have to stop occasionally while filming took place on the set but that’s often part of what we do, working around whatever else is going on in the immediate area even if it does mean taking a little more time,” says Lee Banner of Riggotts. “The important part is to get the job done right.”
To see Riggotts’ handiwork for yourself tune into a forthcoming episode of Hollyoaks and look out for the yellow-lined bay outside the hospital with ‘Ambulance Parking Only’ written across it.
