R & B are a division of SKAFFTEC Ltd. Since our formation many years ago, R & B has rapidly built a significant presence across the public, private and third party sectors and has an outstanding reputation for successfully delivering decoration, refurbishment, passive fire protection, repairs and maintenance services across primary and higher education, residential, healthcare and commercial markets.

Over the years, we have carefully expanded our operations, ensuring that we have not over-leveraged our resources. This has allowed us to organically build up skill and equity in our business, which in turn, allows us to be more competitive in the current market, offering our clients certainty and reliability when dealing with us - a reputation which is invaluable.

We believe that the quality of a company's personnel is its key strength. We are committed and continually strive to recruit, train and retain the highest calibre of management and support staff with specialist skills across the spectrum of our services.

Owning our own Scaffold Company, allows us to plan works that need access requirements smarter and quicker than our competitors, and usually more cost effective.


R & B is an equal opportunity employer and we are committed to a policy of treating all our employees and job applicants equally. 

We truly believe that R & B is today a success story founded on the principals of customer satisfaction.

“R & B benefits from an abundance of repeat business from clients who are pleased time and time again by high quality workmanship and the collaborative manner in which we approach each project. And being a small to medium business, this allows us to manage closely with our clients providing a personal touch to the business relationship”.

R & B have been providing specialist services for three decades and as such have a wealth of experience in managing both small and large-­­ scale projects. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch for your upcoming project.


We believe that partnering is a commitment between two or more parties in a collaborative relationship to create value by striving to achieve shared competitive goals and operational benefit through a spirit of mutual trust and openness. 

The potential benefits are:


  • More effective communication with stakeholder groups on all projects is a key consideration in delivering the project, safely, on time and to budget.


  • Through developing a partnering relationship with companies with complementary skills and resources, improvements in delivery processes can be achieved


  • The trust that develops through this type of relationship can assist in the resolution of any issues that may arise


  • Partnering provides organisations to a wider range of resources with which to consider the continuing development of good practices as well as the impact of encompassing new technologies, initiative and legislation.

  • We have extensive experience of collaborative working which have included us integrating a facility within our Client’s premises.


  • London based contractors (our Head Office is situated in South East London). We are proud that as local contractors, we deal with local suppliers with whom we have established relationships, some of which span 33 years.


  • Our company is familiar with the local market and are in a strong position to develop our supply chain with other suitably experienced local companies. This has ensured that knowledge gained on previous projects has remained within the team, which in turn has minimised defects and increased cost and time certainty.
