Site visits and feedback

Following a site visit from the senior management group, our teams received some fantastic feedback about how the project was going and the positive no nonsense approach Intelect had taken to managing the COVID-19 pandemic on-site.

Both Steve and Pedro reported their feedback to Tim Knavish, the Executive Vice President, Chairman and CEO in the U.S. sharing the positive feedback with him.

This is a great advertisement for Intelect’s role as Principal Contractor on this project and we are pleased to pass this feedback on to our staff and sub-contractors.
