The original project construction program was allocated for 12 weeks due to the intricate detail of the design and long lead times on certain material that was to be used. 2 weeks into the construction program we were informed of a mix up on the lease of Fisher and Paykel’s current accommodation. We were asked to expedite the program to be finished in 9 weeks, which left us 7 weeks to complete the works.
