We know what it’s like to be at the coalface. We’re all from contracting backgrounds. Our knowledge of the issues facing construction companies comes from resolving them on a day-to-day basis, while at the same time working closely with the owners of infrastructure assets. This experience and knowledge enables us to apply insights that can’t be found elsewhere. All of this accomplished without compromising our independence or professional integrity.
