Specialized equipment, has been engineered and constructed to suit various projects indicated below, the equipment can now be used in the civil markets and alike, assisting the following contractors to be more efficient

Safety, The below works have been successfully completed, without a human incident for over 20 years

Confined Space equipment engineered and personnel trained, apply to day/night works 24/7 in the experienced projects (noted below)

Commitment,  whilst 80% of most common work profiles are of a normal simplistic mode, the below experiences identify, work scopes requiring a focus on accuracies, production, and a greater degree of engineering design and challenges outside of the normal mode
