It has been our privilege in supporting the WBHO/SNC–Lavalin Joint venture and one that has certainly given Abi Civil an opportunity to showcase our ability in successfully delivering what we consider a major development in our growth in the Construction Industry.

As is the success of every project, you need a good team of people who you can rely on to get the job done. The team we selected for this project is led by our Project Manager Mr Sean Donohue and our General Foreman Mr Andrew Badger who between them, collectively bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our business. Between Sean and Andrew, we have been successful and fortunate in securing a good team of people with extensive industry experience and skills to drive our business objectives of becoming a contractor of choice.
