The project consisting of three separate areas was to commence on the Saturday and be fully cured by the following Friday.

It was imperative that we did not restrict or impede the activities of the Employer. All gangways, access routes and delivery areas were to be kept clear at all times.

All areas were satisfactorily tested on completion. We were able to provide a dissipative Self Smoothing System to our client thanks to our skilled and dedicated workforce, who time after time, produce excellent results.
