I’m happy to say Bora Building met the challenges of the brief and completed the project by the due date of Christmas. The required construction tolerances were achieved with a high degree of accuracy. Being involved thorough the construction process, I observed that all trades completed their work to a high standard especially the finishing trades; timber flooring, painting and bathroom tiling were very hard to fault.
