Focusing on cost and efficiency, the particular challenge for BWT retrofits is maintaining uptime.

These works can also be scheduled during annual surveys. 

 

Planning is crucial – and C-Job has the experience and knowledge to efficiently handle such class-approved retrofits. We can support:

  • All necessary engineering
  • (Minimising) modification to existing systems
  • Preparing temporary openings
  • Additional pipe and cable penetrations
  • Modifications to switchboards
