Through a mutual understanding of the
various working practices involved, and
a flexible, proactive approach, both
EJ Horrocks and LMC Group have
been able to overcome any unforeseen
issues encountered in order to achieve
architectural objectives, meet the project
schedules and ensure that the main
contractor received project updates as
and when required.

The result of this collaboration is that high
quality fixing has been achieved, all design
features have been completed to a high
standard and program schedules have
been maintained. Residents of Tanner
Point, the first tower to be completed,
began returning to their totally remodelled
homes on time.
