When the call went out for a foundation engineering company to help on a special Children in Need project, Roger Bullivant stepped up.
The firm jumped at the opportunity to provide the piled solution for a special Children in Need episode of the BBC programme DIY SOS:The Big Build.
The BBC had appealed for a foundation engineering company to help with the TV programme’s biggest challenge ever – to build a new modern centre to help vulnerable young people in their transition from care into the community in Swansea.
The focus of this project was to provide a modern support centre, with two to four attached flats, for young people transitioning into adult life. The build was completed in September and was broadcast on BBC1 earlier this week ahead of today’s Children in Need.
The overhaul included the demolition of the existing property, then the Roger Bullivant team installed 28 x 8m bottom driven steel cased piles over the course of three days.
The firm’s marketing department also adapted the Children in Need mascot to produce their very own Roger the Rig character complete with Pudsey Bear bandana.
The episode is available on BBC iplayer for the next four weeks.
