Client Comments

This was a difficult project due to a number of challenging aspects including

  • a very restricted site which required a complex build due to height and clearances
  • an extreme schedule and
  • a detailed knowledge of chemical safety compliance and system design
  • a fire at a Chemical Plant impacted on availability of fire rated cladding
  • difficult weather conditions during the cladding phase

FB, Project Manager:

This was a difficult Project, with a tight site, availability setbacks and a tough program, and they never failed to deliver on time. We appreciate the efforts made on this job, and would recommend the company as they get results, have a very strong knowledge base in terms of Chemical Safety systems and are very easy to work with.
