Metals

Many of our clients in the metals sector require a complete turnkey service for the projects that we engineer, a service that we are happy to provide. Where Optima do not have the resources in-house, selected sub-contract companies are employed (typical disciplines include mechanical engineering and electrical installation). Our project management skills are employed in these instances to ensure on-time, on-budget conclusions are met.
