Successes and Added Value
The project was set to a tight timescale, requiring a proportion of the works to be completed at night for the carriageway. O’Rourke’s operatives exceeded the client’s expectations, completing the works ahead of schedule. Working with the client we provided added value to our proposal with a flexible programme of works and cost effective material options and construction techniques. All of our vehicles conform to the low emission zone requirements, which was necessary for the project.
