- Kerfoot were not initially asked to tender this project. As the scope of works unfolded it became clear this was going to be an incredibly difficult undertaking. At this point the Electrical Engineer sought Kerfoot to join the tender list. The complete relocation, construction and installation of a new state of the art 1600A MSB was dwarfed by the challenging layout. Kerfoot’s can do attitude and resolute ITP process including ISO9000 certification and adherence to GC21 saw us step into the complete management of the site involving civil works and the unexpected removal of 600 Tonnes of Sandstone from site.
