It’s always great to see crews achieve together to solve our customer’s problems.
Earlier this month, Jason Kelly and his crew demonstrated great time management and problem-solving skills while installing 30m of DN1650 Rotaloc in Gladstone, Queensland.
The crew had all the gear on site and in position in the morning, with Pat Dyson and Antonio Sinapati flying in and getting to the site at 8am. Due to restricted access, the machine had to be built down in the hole. 1.2 spools were used, resulting in the line being completed by the end of the day.
A council representative was on site for a lengthy part of the installation and was most impressed by what our crew achieved together.
In addition to this project, Gladstone Council recently signed off on $2.4m of additional sewer relining works for us to do while we are already mobilised on site. They took into account our excellent performance and the benefit they would gain not only with their program delivery but also savings on account of mobilisation and demobilisation costs in arriving at this decision.
Great work to the team for their great time management, problem-solving skills and for going above and beyond the expectations of their customers.
