We have adopted a strategy to keep expertise, experience and the knowledge of our client systems in-house so as to ensure we can provide informed solutions and services. We also believe that investing in and retaining key staff is critical to success. Our senior engineers are formally trained in project management and are equipped to perform engineering or management roles according to requirements.
