“Developing a successful partnership between a client and delivery partner is critical in producing a quality product. In today’s ever-changing climate it is more important than ever to engage a team who can bring a package to completion and strive for excellence. Here at Laing O’Rourke, we have high expectations and require our subcontractors to produce a high-quality finish with efficiency and safety in mind, the team at Australis have met our brief and are continually looking to grow and take on new challenges. Our business has enjoyed the collaboration, safety conscious way of going to work displayed by the team and would not hesitate to recommend the Australis roofing and construction team to any business taking on large projects”
