RAF Benson Enlists Riggotts

22nd March 2016by galinar84Case Studies

Situated in South Oxfordshire, RAF Benson has been committed to operations and support operations throughout the world since 1939. Home to two-thirds of the RAF’s support helicopter force, it is one of the busiest stations in the RAF with personnel deploying regularly.

RAF Benson approached Riggotts regarding the need to bring their line markings up to date, especially the centre line dots on the runways, which were not only ready for a refresh but needed to be brought up to the latest specification.

To carry out the works, the line markers first needed to start with a blank canvas. The first stage of the project was, therefore, to remove the blocks at the ends of each of the runways. Once removed, the team set to work marking all the necessary lines including ‘stop bars’ on taxiways, new centre dots and dedicated pedestrian walkways.

Shane Cutter, line marker at Riggotts, commented: “It was great working for such an important client such as RAF Benson – it’s an extremely busy station so we had to work around daily operations and not cause any inconvenience to those using the station. The job only took five days and hopefully means that operations can now run more efficiently and effectively.”


Margaret McMillan School Bradford

4th December 2014by galinar84Case Studies

We pride ourselves on offering a bespoke service which is second to none, so when we were asked to create an area for children to socialise and learn at Margaret McMillan School in Bradford…we did just that.

Our first job was to provide a non slip coating to the existing concrete paving slabs, matching the general theme of the area. We then installed an MMA non-slip coating to a specification of colours and shapes, matching our client’s bespoke drawings.

Involvement in bespoke projects has its disadvantages, manufacturing of specific coloured materials and tight deadlines can be hard to juggle – but we think you’ll agree the end product makes it all worthwhile!


As Bright As You Can Please

1st December 2014by galinar84Case Studies

Riggotts recently completed line marking and surface coatings for a brand new car park at Winfred Holtby and Tweendykes school. Their work included the use of slip resistant acrylic coatings, thermoplastic for the bay markings and cold plastic resin for the individual logos.

The order was placed by Morgan Sindall PLC on Tuesday, for a rapid completion on Thursday before the Easter weekend handover – so they had to get to work!


Aberdeen Airport

1st December 2014by galinar84Case Studies

Riggotts have completed a £30,000 line marking contract to revamp Aberdeen Airport’s car parking facilities in just two weeks.

The project was delivered for leading construction project management company GOLDBECK. Riggotts were responsible for re-marking the lines within the airport’s multi-storey car parks, as well as road and walkway markings leading to the parking facilities.

All car park line-markings were revamped using thermoplastic, the bay, road and walkway markings were re-painted using single pack epoxy – a fast drying, long-lasting and chemical resistant paint.

London Motor Show

30th November 2014by galinar84Case Studies

Riggotts took pole position at the London Motor Show after creating a temporary race track and show stand for car enthusiasts to enjoy.

The Nottinghamshire-based line marking company was appointed by stand designers to mark out the Aston Martin stand inside the hall at the Excel Exhibition Centre, as well as create a mini race track for Mazda.

The designers were looking for a line marking material that would provide flexibility in bright colours and could be quickly applied due to the tight turnaround of the exhibition.

Both jobs were completed using Esseline CR, one of the latest products in the company’s unique Esseline range.

Esseline CR is a cost-effective and highly durable chlorinated rubber line marking and surface coating material, designed specifically for use on both external and internal asphalt and concrete surfaces.

The markings are dry for wheels in just 15 minutes and will retain its colour brilliance in all conditions. This ensures it stays looking as good throughout the show as it did on the first day.

The team worked throughout the weekend to mark out the required areas alongside other contractors who were also working to extremely tight deadlines.

The results were superb and really added to the high-class racing theme on the Aston Martin stand and race track areas.

As well as installing all the white lining at the new store, Tesco implemented new red designated areas to the disabled and parent and child parking areas. Riggotts worked closely with the client to source the correct materials for the job – meeting the client’s expectations and ensuring a finish that was second to none.

Luckily we had the knowledge and know-how to deliver everything the client requested and more, take a look for yourself…

Ikea superstore opens its doors on time thanks to Riggotts.

One of the UK’s newest Ikea superstores was able to open its doors to the public on time after Riggotts completed major work on the store’s car park in just six weeks.

The Nottingham store needed its car park colouring quickly in order to allow Ikea to remain on track with its challenging completion programme.

Riggotts successfully completed the project within the six-week timeframe and to budget, ensuring that the superstore could open on time.
