We won the contract to refurbish the viewing area at Larkhill on the edge of Salisbury Plain. The viewing area is used for Military Displays as well as the British Army live Firepower Demonstration.
Back in March 2014, we set about cutting the grass which had been uncut for a number of years. We re-fenced the rear of the seating/grandstand area with 400m new post and rail, replaced and repaired the concrete steps and installed a new access track. The final job was to replace 3000 linear metres of hardwood timber seating (see picture), which involved removing the old, sourcing replacements, painting and repairing all steel supports and then fixing new boards.
The new viewing area was then ready for The Royal Review which was celebrated on 26th May 2016, the 30th Anniversary of the Royal Regiment of Artillery. Her Majesty The Queen was present and received The Captain-General’s Baton.
