Taking on the challenge of close target dates

Aurecon was presented with close target dates to complete the majority of the Independent Checking Engineer tasks. Time management and working closely with the contractor on site with Aurecon’s full-time site representatives, were vital to delivering packages within the required timeframes.

Aurecon maintained the high quality of service and the required number of full-time personnel on site during the lifespan of the project, by rotating employees with different levels of expertise.

Site safety was a top priority, and Aurecon contributed to creating and maintaining a safe work environment for all works, with regular safety walks and safety conversations.
