NSW local contractors engaged to complete works

Lismore Council engaged local contractors for the construction of a modular kit-form toilet building, which was all completed within 6 weeks due to additional underground pipework. Disruption to Lismore’s CBD was minimised by allowing continued traffic flow around the fenced construction site. A quick build time with minimal disruption meant a public restroom was available to serve the local community quicker than a conventional brick and tile construction process.
