Project Highlights

  • Historic significance caused numerous trenching challenges and meant engaging NCC’s preferred heritage archaeologist subcontractor to be onsite most days to avoid tools down.
  • Installing cables through heritage listed building walls/foundations, in coordination with an engaged structural engineer, with minimal disturbance.
  • Our flexibility and ability to operate dynamically allowed us to accommodate the needs of the client, including operating event venues, and meet all deliverables on this project in a safe, considerate, and timely manner.
