Access to Solutions

BASE Industries have implemented a schedule task continuous improvement programme that has continuously reduced key schedule task items, thus improving the overall project schedule. BASE Industries continue to effectively manage the onsite scaffold compound to ensure that any challenging access requirements that arise within the duration of the project can be addressed efficiently and as a result has eliminated any costly delays throughout the project for CPB Contractors.
