  • Working in close proximity to existing residents with minimum disruptions

Time

  • Bitu-mill’s collaborative approach has allowed the project to be constructed on time and within budget, despite challenging groundwater.

Quality

  • Quality Assurance around Electrical assets resulted in exceptional results during Powercor audits
