A Word From Drac
The project had many challenges including a concentrated design, fabrication and installation timeline not to mention the impact that COVID-19 has had on all businesses worldwide. The dedicated team at Drac synergised to design and fabricate the components under our scope of supply in record breaking time – a true testament to the abilities of the entire Drac team to keep delivering high quality in what will be remembered as a very challenging year for Australia.
