As I am writing this, it’s July (already) and our clients are anxious to get major works started on site that were originally set to commence during the coronavirus lockdown. We’re here to help and we’ve pulled out all the stops to make it happen wherever possible.

The perfect recipe for anything – major works included – includes plenty of planning and allowing adequate time for matters to run their course and for unexpected events. The coronavirus was certainly unexpected and as a result, many of our clients’ larger projects have been pushed back to 2021. So there is even more reason to plan well ahead of projects you’d like on site next year.
