During Works


A level of flexibility had to be given to the customer regarding the project plan as some areas became more critical as works progressed. We made sure additional labour was available to cover these parts of the project and materials were stocked on site for repaid deployment to bring certain phases forward.



All works were completed in the 20 week timeframe and to the customer’s satisfaction. Due to this we are currently in the process of surveying 2 other locations for the same project.
